Kody Keplinger's The Duff

The DUFF: (Designated Ugly Fat Friend)Kody Keplinger is having a contest on her blog to giveaway a copy of her book The Duff. I of course entered. I have been hearing about this book for a very long time and it has been nothing but rave reviews. As an aspiring writer Kody Keplinger has shown me that anything is possible. She wrote this book her senior year of high school and at the age of 19 has already been published. To me that is an incredible accomplishment. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy and see what all of the rage is about. If you have never heard of The Duff then you must live under a rock but if you came out from that rock to read my blog, thank you and here is a quote from Kody's website about her book The Duff:

"I always felt like the 'ugly girl' in high school, so when I was introduced to the word during my senior year, I knew I was the Duff. The idea of writing a book with DUFF as the title started as a joke, but when I realized that my friends felt like Duffs, too, I knew I had to write this story!"
