The New York Times bestseller is now a major motion picture!
Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper may not be the prettiest girl in her high school, but she has a loyal group of friends, a biting wit, and a spot-on BS detector. She's also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush, who calls Bianca the Duff--the designated ugly fat friend--of her crew.
But things aren't so great at home and Bianca, desperate for a distraction, ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him.
Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out 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.

Bianca is devastated when the hottest guy in school calls her "The Duff" (designated ugly fat friend). Ellen Grafton perfectly matches Bianca's caustic tones as she attempts to recover from the huge blow to her self-esteem, cope with her parents' messy divorce, and avoid developing a crush on the worst possible guy. In contrast, Grafton's skill falls somewhat short at creating distinguishable and fitting voices for secondary characters, including that of Wesley, Bianca's nemesis and crush. But this weakness doesn't detract from Bianca's compelling story as she attempts to choose between the boy who treats her well and the boy who makes her heart race.
