Announcing #ReadTheDUFF!

Posted January 13, 2015 by Debby in Uncategorized

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!
