Book Review: The DUFF

Title: The DUFF
Author: Kody Keplinger
Genre: YA Literary/Commercial Fiction
Rating: A+

140-Character Summary: A messed-up high school girl meets an equally-messed-up guy who tells her she's the DUFF, which she sort of accepts. And sort of changes.

First 140 Characters of the Book: "This was getting old. Once again, Casey and Jessica were making complete fools of themselves, shaking their a**es like dancers in a rap..." (p.1, edited).

140-Character Review: Great book where all of the characters had a deeper motivation that was worth uncovering. I expect good things from youngster Keplinger.

140-Character Recommendation/Market Placement/Entry Point: Fans of realistic YA fiction with no "physical" punches pulled. A sexed-up version of Lauren Myracle's or Susane Colasanti's relationships.
