News! THE DUFF Sold to Poppy

YA Highway teen contributor Kody Keplinger's debut has been picked up by Little, Brown! From Publishers Marketplace:

Seventeen-year-old debut author Kody Keplinger’s THE DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend), a Juno-esque She’s Come Undone, in which cynical and witty “DUFF” Bianca decides the intrigue of casual sex with gorgeous-but-jerkoff player Wesley is more alluring than facing her own issues with self-esteem… until it all goes wrong when they realize they’re falling in love, to Kate Sullivan at Poppy, at auction, in a two-book deal, by Joanna Stampfel-Volpe at Nancy Coffey Literary & Media Representation (World).

Congratulations, Kody!
