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 “the Duff,” she throws her Coke in his face.
But things aren’t so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him.
Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out 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.
hmm.. let me tell you one thing, this book is for mature young adult. So the story doesn't just revolve around sweet love story, there's more than that.
Okay, so what is this book about?
-about a girl who falls for the bad guy and she changes him (not such an original idea I guess)
How's the writing?
-simple and easy to understand. Not too descriptive of unimportant things
How's the plot?
-predictable (although I suck at predicting stuff lol)
What's the main theme?
-romance and a little bit of family problems
So does the story is relatable?
-yes and no. Yes for when she is not with him and no when she's with him (I'm not sure whether it's love or lust).

-2 bright stars!
So the question of the year, would I recommend it?
