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 a New York Times Bestseller and a major motion picture starring Bella Thorne, Mae Whitman and Alison Janney.

Reviews

An interesting and enjoyable read -- Kelly Pringle, Liberton High * Teen Titles *
Kody Keplinger breathed some new life into the now horribly cliched idea of a love triangle by writing realistically flawed characters ... hilarious * South Wales Evening Post *
An earthy, realistic and compelling depiction of teenage relationships and self-image * Book Trust *
Sharp, hot, thoughtful, and searingly honest, The Duff is one of the best young adult novels to come along in a decade. * Elizabeth Scott, US author of the The Unwritten Rule. *
Written when the author herself was just 17, this debut novel has a bluntly honest edge ... compulsive reading, with a sassy heroine you'll find yourself rooting for against all the odds * We Love This Book *
Edgy and compelling. I couldn't put it down! * Simon Elkeles, New York Times best-selling author *
A well written, irreverent, and heartfelt debut. * Publishers Weekly *
