Fresh Talent : Kody Keplinger

So recently I read this book “The DUFF” (the Designated Ugly Fat Friend) by Kody Keplinger and it was amazing. Its about this seventeen-year-old girl Bianca Piper who is loyal and cynical but doesnt think she’s the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She has a messed up life at home and it gets even more awry when she gets kissed by the school’s hottie Wesley Rush. I wont tell you more or I’ll give the plot away, but all I’ll say is that it was extremely moving and its a must have on your booklist.

The Duff by Kody Keplinger

The Duff by Kody Keplinger


The book was authored by nineteen year old (as far as I know) Kody Keplinger who is a TV buff and Converse tennis shoe enthusiast. She describes herself as a hippie and is the author of three young adult novels The DUFF, A Midsummer’s Nightmare and Shut Out. She wrote her first book The Duff during her senior year at high school in Kentucky. Now she lives in New York and spends her time eating Thai food.


I loved this book and her writing style and though the plot isn’t very original, I really love the story just the same. You can find her on or visit her blog.

Happy reading!

Deliya x 🙂
