I haven’t seen the movie.
I am happy that I decided to read the book and watch it later because based on commercials and looking at the cast, the added some characters which also means the story is different.
I don’t like that stuff.
I absolutely love this book. It actually has kind of a “lesson” at the end of it which doesn’t happen a lot for literature anymore. Usually books are like “love conquers all” and I’m like gag. This one doesn’t have that and I absolutely loved it. They have love, obviously, but it is just more than that.
Story starts off like most teen stories: the guy that everyone thinks is smokin’ hot (Wesley) talks to a girl that finds him repulsive (Bianca).
He calls her the DUFF (designated ugly fat friend… how charming) and says if he gets on her good side he can sleep with one of her two hot best friends.
She spills her Cherry Coke on him. *applause*
Then we find out there is drama at home. Bianca wants to escape.
Her escape = shagging Wesley
Girl ends up keeping him a secret from her friends and family and starts to distance herself from all of them. It doesn’t go unnoticed.
Then things at home get worse…
Then her friends start to get mad…
Then someone she always wanted to notice her notices her…
Ladies and gentlemen, it is my honor to introduce *drum roll* the love triangle. Every book these days has them, because hey they make the stories even more interesting.
Well who will she pick?
This isn’t something I would like my young daughter reading (if I had one) because it does have some sex scenes in them, though it isn’t as graphic as some other novels.
Honestly, I loved this story. The writing was a okay, not the best, and the ending was predictable (to me at least); but overall, it was completely entertaining and I finished it within three hours. I am excited to see what the movie has in store, but I can already tell you I will probably like the book more.
