Bianca was a great heroine in this story. She is strong, yet vulnerable. She has really thick skin, but a core that most people can relate to at one point or another. The boy in this story, Wesley left me with mixed feelings. He was arrogant, no doubt about it, but as the story progressed, he grew on me. The connection between the characters was intense, but often left me with a feeling of dread. I am sure everyone has met a guy like Wesley before. Overall the characters were interesting and helped keep the plot interesting.
In conclusion, I would recommend this book to just about anyone. It sends a message that will make you think and will stay with you long after you finish the story.

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 "Duffy," she throws her Coke in his face.
But things aren't so great at home right now. Desperate for a distraction, Bianca ends up kissing Wesley. And likes it. Eager for escape, she throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with Wesley.
Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out that 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.
