The powerful friendship is what sings in Keplinger's novel, even as secrets start emerging Bustle.com
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Kody Keplinger was born and raised in a small Kentucky town. She wrote her first novel, The DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) when she was only 17. Kody is the cofounder of Disability in Kidlit, a website devoted to the representation of disabilities in children's literature. Currently, Kody lives in New York City, where she teaches writing workshops and continues to write books for kids and teens. Kody's website is kodykeplinger.com 'I always felt like the "ugly girl" in high school - my best friends are insanely gorgeous - 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" in 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.' The DUFF is now a major motion picture starring Bella Thorne, Mae Whitman and Alison Janney. Kody writes for YA Highway, a blog devoted to the young adult publishing industry. She is also a featured writer for Poptimal.com, a popular pop culture blog, where she reviews TV shows and movies.

Yes like some reviews state the friendship is a bit instant but in this situation it’s realistic since both of the girls were really lonely and missing something in their lives so it was natural they would attach on to each other. There’s very little romance in this book, it’s mainly a friendship book. I loved the friendship between the two girls and the characters despite them being whiny at some points. I understood Bo’s whininess over Agnes whose whining was about how she had no freedom and her parents always thinking she needed protecting because all Agnes had to do was stand up for herself and Bo was a bit helpless since there wasn’t much she could do about her own situation. The ending was a bittersweet. The call between Bo and Agnes towards the end of the book reminded me of the song “For Good” in the musical “Wicked” that goes “Who can say if I've been changed for the better but because I knew you I have been changed for good.” Because that seemed to be the message of the entire book and their whole friendship. Overall I loved this book. I finished it in a week which considering my busy schedule says lot about it. I went in this book thinking I wouldn’t like it since Kody Keplinger’s books aren’t normally the type of books I like but this one is different and at the level of Deb Caletti. When I read the acknowledgements which I have to be honest and say I never do, it seems like the character Agnes kind of hits home with her so I guess it really is best to write what you know. I hope to see more books like this by the author!
As a romance reader, I'm looking for that impossible love. Because when it's well written, I can feel it as I read it. This book made me want to call up all my girlfriends and tell them I love them. There is huge depth in this book, between two friends from opposite ends of the social scale who find something they need in each other. This book is about risking everything for a friend, because romantic love is great, but friendship is lasting, and finding what you really need to live is freeing.
I wish there were six stars. This book deserves it.
Lots of themes of people being different than others assume and trying to write your own story.
