I'm am SO happy that I can finally announce this!!! Congratulations to Kody Keplinger, who is now OFFICIALLY a published author!
Publishers' Marketplace announcement:
“Seventeen-year-old debut author Kody Keplinger’s THE DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend), a Juno-esque She’s Come Undone, in which cynical and witty “DUFF” Bianca decides the intrigue of casual sex with gorgeous-but-jerkoff player Wesley is more alluring than facing her own issues with self-esteem… until it all goes wrong when they realize they’re falling in love, to Kate Sullivan at Poppy, at auction, in a two-book deal, by Joanna Stampfel-Volpe at Nancy Coffey Literary & Media Representation (World).”
Kody's The Duff is such an awesome book - edgy and gritty without being gratuitous, with a cast of quirky, three-dimensional characters. AND IT'S GOING TO BE ON BOOKSHELVES NEXT YEAR.
You all have to buy it, okay? Every. Last. One of you.
