Kody Keplinger returns to the world of The DUFF in this brand-new companion novel!

Sonny Ardmore is an excellent liar. She lies about her dad being in prison. She lies about her mom kicking her out. And she lies about sneaking into her best friend's house every night because she has nowhere else to go. Amy Rush might be the only person Sonny shares everything with -- secrets, clothes, even a nemesis named Ryder Cross. Ryder's the new kid at Hamilton High and everything Sonny and Amy can't stand -- a prep-school snob. But Ryder has a weakness: Amy. So when Ryder emails Amy asking her out, the friends see it as a prank opportunity not to be missed. But without meaning to, Sonny ends up talking to Ryder all night online. And to her horror, she realizes that she might actually like him. Only there's one small catch: he thinks he's been talking to Amy. So Sonny comes up with an elaborate scheme to help Ryder realize that she's the girl he's really wanted all along. Can Sonny lie her way to the truth, or will all her lies end up costing her both Ryder and Amy?

Review quote

Praise for The DUFF[A] well-written, irreverent, and heartfelt debut. --Publishers WeeklySharp, hot, thoughtful, and searingly honest, The DUFF is one of the best young adult novels to come along in ages. --Elizabeth Scott, author of Living Dead Girl and The Unwritten RuleA complex, enemies-with-benefits relationship that the YA market has never seen before ... Her snarky teen speak, true-to-life characterizations, and rollicking sense of humor never cease in her debut. --Kirkus ReviewsWhat's best here is Bianca's brazen voice. Even when confused, she is truer to herself than most. --BooklistEdgy and compelling. I couldn't put it down! --Simone Elkeles, Rules of Attraction
