Romantic Times - Top Pick!!!

Okay, so . . . .


Think they heard that all the way in China? If not, I'm losing my touch.

So, my lovely, lovely agent Joanna just sent this quote to me, and I almost died . . . and maybe cried just a little. Not much . . . just a little . . . I'm tough, I swear . . .

Anyway, this is from Romantic Times! THE DUFF got 4.5 stars and is a Top Pick!

"Kudos to the 18-year-old Keplinger for writing a heroine whose complicated relationship with sex is honest and heartbreaking. This for-more-mature teens novel deftly illustrates how even consensual sex can be emotionally destructive, and captures thoughts about self-image and the many different types of relationships. Expect to be recommending THE DUFF to friends for years to come."

O. M. G.

So, um . . . this is my first professional review, and I'm so, so, so freaking excited! I wasn't expecting it at all, but I hope that when you guys read THE DUFF, you'll agree.

Speaking of which . . . JUST A MONTH AWAY!!! (A month and like 3 days, but who's counting really?)
