Waiting on Wednesday (4) - The DUFF
Publisher: Little Brown/ Poppy
To be released: September 7, 2010
Summary (from Goodreads):
Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn't think she's the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She's also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her "Duffy," she throws her Coke in his face.
But things aren't so great at home right now. Desperate for a distraction, Bianca ends up kissing Wesley. And likes it. Eager for escape, she throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with Wesley.
Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out that Wesley isn't such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she's falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone.
I am anxiously awaiting this release from debut author Kody Keplinger (who is only 18!). Everyone has been raving about this book and seems like a book I will be interested in. I cannot wait to read it when it is released in September.
