About the Author
Praise For The Duff: Designated Ugly Fat Friend…
"Edgy and compelling. I couldn't put it down!"
"[A] well-written, irreverent, and heartfelt debut."
"A complex, enemies-with-benefits relationship that the YA market has
never seen before... Keplinger scores a first for a genre in which
vampires and dystopian futures rule. Her snarky teen speak, true-to-life
characterizations and rollicking sense of humor never cease in her
"Kudos to the 18-year-old Keplinger for writing a heroine whose
complicated relationship with sex is honest and heartbreaking. Expect
to be recommending THE DUFF to friends for years to come."
