“I think the way the author wrote this book made it really easy for teenagers to relate to this story. It consists of many issues that a teen could have gone through in high school. What I got out of reading this was that not everyone is perfect. I thought of this after reading the sentence "We were all duffs" And I totally understood how just a single word, can cause people to think and act in different ways. I have to confess, I didn't like Bianca very much at the start and middle of the book, I know she had to get away from the hardship that was going on in her life, but the way she took the pain away wasn't in my liking. However, by the end of the book, my feelings about her changed automatically, she was strong, and I understood why Bianca needed something to take her mind of the bad things happening in her life by distracting herself. I realized that there are always going to be people who judge, and there are always going to be hypocrites, because in reality being judged is how life works. You don't control your self anymore, society does, and this book was so honest and true, and makes you proud to be who you are. I think that the romance begun at the end of the book, Wesley turned into a decent guy, and Bianca "The Duff" changed him. Love works out one way or another.”
