Calling all YA readers and fans! As you may know (by the extensive promotion and squealing by yours truly for one), 2015 brings us the book-to-movie adaptation of one of my all time FAVORITE books: Kody Keplinger’s The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend. That book not only has one of my favorite romances ever (I’m all about hate-to-love romance), but it had such a great relatable character growth arc and message, and the writing was on point. It was one of the first contemporary books I ever read, and it totally opened me up to the genre because of how such a realistic story can make you feel so much less alone.
OBVIOUSLY, I’m really excited that a story that meant so much to me is making it to the big screen, but I want as many of you as possible to enjoy this brilliant story as well. SO: there’s a read-along happening, and I REALLY hope that you’ll all participate! Whether it’s your first time, or whether it’s a re-read, let’s all bask in the glory of The DUFF and get pumped! There’s even a Twitter chat at the end with Kody Keplinger (!!!!) where participants of the read-along will have the chance to win cool prizes!
