As we already have a lovely book giveaway in the form of Ivy Lane by Cathy Bramley for our UK readers this week, we thought it’d be fun to offer a little end-of-the-week something for you guys in the USA.
Due to be released on February 20, The DUFF was recently mentioned in our ‘books you should read before they hit the big screen’ post. Remember the rom-com She’s All That with Freddie Prinze Jr? This is kind of like the modern version and we’re pretty excited about the film. To celebrate its imminent premiere, we have a copy of The DUFF by Kody Keplinger to giveaway, in addition to a movie-themed t-shirt and poster.
Bianca (played by Mae Whitman in the movie) is a content high school senior whose world is shattered when she learns the student body knows her as ‘The DUFF’ (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) to her prettier, more popular friends. Now, despite the words of caution from her favorite teacher (Ken Jeong), she puts aside the potential distraction of her crush, Toby (Nick Eversman), and enlists Wesley (Robbie Amell), a slick but charming jock, to help reinvent herself. To save her senior year from turning into a total disaster, Bianca must find the confidence to overthrow the school’s ruthless label maker Madison (Bella Thorne) and remind everyone that no matter what people look or act like, we are all someone’s DUFF.
The following banner is an affiliate one. That means Writing Tips Oasis receive a small % of the sale if you purchase The Novel Factory, but at no extra cost to you:
Definitely one you want to read before you see the film, but if you need more convincing, here’s the trailer:
