Book Review: The D.U.F.F. by Kody Keplinger- 4.5 Stars


I received a copy of this book via Netgalley; thank you!

I loved this book. Biana is your typical teen. She’s relatable, she has problems, she’s not a fake “teen” in some YA books that you are left seriously wondering what teen the author based them off of. 169 more words
