This book was great, but I do understand why some have ill feeling toward this book. A girl falling for a Guy that treats her like poop. But this is how I feel if this girl knew what she was getting into--then its on her,she let him call her that. I loved this book because Bianca was strong even when she had worst issues then being called the duff. The writing was good, the author touched on real life altering issues. I know I am the duff out of my friends they are all beautiful, do I can feel on that level. And I'm not saying I'm not beautiful, it just took me longer to figure out I was pretty to me so that's what mattered.
Bianca- Regardless of what people think,Bianca knew what she wanted. Even if it wasn't a healthy way to express these feeling of emotion. She always knew what she wanted. And the whole best friend being lied too, who wants to tell their friend,"Hey, I'm doing this Guy because I'm pittying myself and I need release!" Come on you don't introduce someone if you ain't serious.
Wesley- All men are assholes! That's just all I have to say, you just learn to deal with the one you got. He's young dumb and abandoned. He has no real parenting, poor kid. I blame his parents.
TO ALL WOMEN, STOP HAVING LOW SELF ASTEEM, MEN EAT THAT SHIT UP. LOVE YOU FOR YOU. FAT,SKINNY,SHORT,TALL, GLASSES,FRECKLES, OR WHATEVER IT IS YOU DO NOT LIKE. MINE WAS A BIG HEAD GROWING UP. WE AS WOMEN ARE GORGEOUS AS WE ARE, AND MEN CAN SENSE WHEN WE KNOW IT. I THOUGHT BIANCA WAS BEAUTIFUL, WE ALL HAVE A LITTLE DUFF IN US.
