One of my former students texted me the other day asking if I knew anything about Kody Keplinger’s debut The DUFF being made into a movie. I’m not sure how I missed out on this news, but I was pretty excited when she told me about what she had heard. Only a day or so later I received a marketing email with this official teaser trailer, movie poster, and more about the upcoming movie! It releases sometime next year and I simply can’t wait. I read The DUFF in one sitting when it came out and I’ll have to read it again before I see the movie.
