I loved this book. I thought Bianca was real and even though cynical, loveable and very relatable. Who hasn't ever felt like the Duff? I think while the Duff might not have been the exact acronym used it is still something most people can relate to. I not only loved Bianca but Wesley as well even though he is meant to be portrayed as a womanizer. His overall charm makes him very appealing and even has you rooting for him through out the story.
The story pieces each part together perfectly. Everything mentioned has a reason to be in the story. The Duff is well written and the voice is as real as it gets. This is the epitome of what a YA book should be. Kudos to Kody Keplinger for nailing it.

Please grab the box of tissues, sit down and take a moment to read this blog post by author Meg Cabot. I still have tears in my eyes. This post, this honest, heartfelt recollection of September 11th 2001 is the reason that the day should never be forgotten. http://www.megcabot.com/2010/09/nine-years-ago/
