Transcript of The DUFF written by: Kody Keplinger

Written By: Kody Keplinger
The DUFF
This book is about a girl named Bianca who is going through a tough time in her life. Her parents are getting divorced, and her Dad starts drinking again. Bianca feels trapped, so one day while she was supposed to be working on a school project she found her escape, Wesely Rush. Through the course of the book you follow Bianca as she sinks deeper and deeper into her twisted lies and family issues as she discovers who is truly there for her.
Summary
The theme of this book is survival. Bianca looses so much in such a short span of time, and doesn't know how to cope with everything. Instead of turning to drinking, or drugs like most people do. Bianca turns towards sex as a way of survival, and she does this through Wesely Rush. Together they're able to see how truly messed up each others lives are and through their means of survival they are able to connect and build each other back up.
Theme
Bianca is a shelled person she doesn't like to share her problems with anyone else and keeps everything bottled up inside, which hurts her in the long run. Bianca does express one thing and makes it very clear to everyone, that she hates Wesely Rush. One night he told her she was The DUFF(The Designated Ugly Fat Friend) and Bianca threw a coke in his face. Throughout the story she starts to let him deeper and deeper into her life as she pushes away her two best friends Jess and Casey , who she has always been the closest to, in her struggle for survival.
Character Development

This presentation was created by Mikayla Leibowitz
This is Kody Keplinger she got the idea from this book because she always felt like the DUFF compared to all her friends.
This is the ideal image of Bianca Piper even though she isn't the DUFF by a long shot she still can't help feeling like she is.
This is the meaning of The DUFF.
Through her journey Bianca finds a way of survival.
“You can lie to yourself if you want, but reality is going to catch up with you. I’ll be waiting when it does… whether you like it or not.”

My Favorite Paragraph
This is my favorite quote because its when reality is finally catching up with Bianca. She can no longer hide from her problems she has to face them head on instead of hiding. In this quote Bianca finally faces the truth.
Recommendations
I really enjoyed this book, but i would not recommend it to everyone. I would recommend this book for people who want to read a story on someones journey of survival because that's what this book is really about. It isn't about being the DUFF or about sex its about being able to cope with everything bad that happens in your life. Through Bianca I was able to see how she survived when everything around her was falling apart.
