A companion to Kody Keplinger's debut novel The DUFF, now a major motion picture!

Sonny Ardmore is an excellent liar.

She lies about her dad skipping town. She lies about her mom kicking her out. And she lies about sneaking into her best friend's house every night because she's got nowhere else to go. Thank God for Amy Rush. Sonny and Amy share everything - secrets, clothes, and even a nemesis in the form of Ryder Cross (despite Ryder's unrequited crush on Amy).

But when Sonny and Amy play a prank on Ryder online, it backfires. But when Ryder's not fooled and calls Amy out, it's Sonny that's logged into her friend's computer. Without meaning to, Sonny ends up talking to him all night online. And it happens again. And again. The problem is, he still thinks he's talking to Amy. Sonny might be an excellent liar, but the truth has to come out eventually. And when it does, more than one heart may end up broken in the process.

Return to the world and characters of The DUFF with Kody Keplinger in this brand-new companion novel.
