DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger. The main character, Bianca, is a teen going through the usual difficulties such as self-doubt, insecurity, boys and bullying. But on top of this, she has to deal with her mother abandoning her and her father's alcoholism.
Bianca, has two beautiful, skinny, blonde, popular friends named Casey and Jessica. As much as she loves them they are a little bit of a wild child, so it's her job to pull them to earth. At one of their teen parties she bumps into this ignorant, disgusting, mean but maybe a little hot boy that, also happens to be her arch enemy and decides to share a cherry coke, with his face. The day after the 'accidental' coke spill she is forced to do an assignment with the boy she hates. During the book she realises that using this boy to forget her problems isn't a good idea. Especially when her crush asks her out. Who will she pick.
One of the things I like about this story is the way it addresses teenage issues like self-image, peer pressure and teen sexuality.
This is a funny romance (even though I hate romances, this book is amazing) and I rate it out of 5 paper dolls:
