Amber and I have been HUGE fans of Kody and The DUFF since Kody was agonizing over the cover on her blog. And, yes, we admit to the fact that the movie will not be 100% faithful adaptation from book to screen, we think that the snark and the fun nature of the book will be captured and we cannot wait for the movie.
As always, we encourage you to read the book before seeing the movie, especially in this case since it is one of our favorites.

Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn't think she's the
prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She's also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her "Duffy," she throws her Coke in his face.
But things aren't so great at home right now. Desperate for a distraction, Bianca ends up kissing Wesley. And likes it. Eager for escape, she throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with Wesley.
Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out that Wesley isn't such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she's falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone.
