The people who call you names are just trying to make themselves feel better. They’ve fucked up before, too. You’re not the only one.
Well, that sucked? Prior to reading the book, I really had quite high hopes that it will turn out good along with the fact that it’s got a movie adaptation! However, it did not meet my expectations, which is sad. Plus, I came to a realization that WHAT A CRUEL TITLE IS THAT?
Being in high school doesn’t really suck even when you’re on the radar. Trust me. It’s just the way you manage yourself along with other people. Bianca Piper, the protagonist of the story, after meeting Wesley Rush (the love interest???) at a party at The Nest, was called the DUFF which stands for Designated Ugly Fat Friend. First of all, how dare he call her that? Being fat and ugly already makes a person feel really bad but being designated, ugh. The fuck! And, Bianca was just equally annoying. She took the word too seriously. It’s pretty common that when you’re in high school, others call you names. It was pathetic she does not know how to care less.
I was also annoyed because most parts of the book, it seemed that Bianca was the one doing the moves. She was the first one to kiss Wesley, plus the one who started the S word. ALSO, what right does she have to have sex to escape? I know we have problems and have different ways of solving them but come on! That wasn’t nicely handled. There are so many options on how to deal with problems and SEX IS AN ADDITION TO HER PROBLEM. She had sex with Wesley again and again and had NEARLY lost her dear good friends. AND she got stuck in an even more terrible high school drama.
Now, Wesley labeled Bianca as the DUFF and called her Duffy when they talk to each other. Bianca just annoyed the hell out of me because GIRL WHY DID YOU ALLOW THAT SO-CALLED MANWHORE CALL YOU AS THE DUFF? Well, shit. I’m losing my temper here! At least Bianca had wits to know that love takes some time to be felt. And then the story turned like any other cliché stories. BOOM!
Overall, the book sucked to me. I don’t like it. At all. It buried something into my mind I wish I could dig out as soon as possible. I hated the book so much okay that’s it. Shouldn’t have read it though!!
