Kody Keplinger Has Written a Companion For The Duff

By Maryann Yin 

Lying Out LoudKody Keplinger has written a companion book to her 2010 novel, The Duff. Scholastic will release Lying Out Loud in April 2015.

The author set the story for this new book in Hamilton High School. That means it will feature appearances from the characters of all three of Keplinger’s past young adult titlesThe DuffShut Out, and A Midsummer’s Nightmare.

According to Keplinger’s blog post, Lying Out Loud stars “a girl named Sonny, who happens to be best friends with Amy Rush (Yep, Wesley’s little sister from The Duff, which means Bianca and Wesley will show up!) But when Sonny unintentionally catfishes a boy from her class, who thinks he’s been chatting with Amy online, things get complicated.”
