I was the Duff. And that was a good thing. Because anyone who didn't feel like the Duff must not have friends. Every girl feels unattractive sometimes. Why had it taken me so long to figure that out? Why had I been stressing over that dumb word for so long when it was so simple? I should be proud to be the Duff. Proud to have great friends who, in their minds, were my Duffs.
[Confidence] [Yourself] [Kody Keplinger]
[I]f you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now. And when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong. (141)

[I]t doesn?t matter whom you love or where you move from or to, you always take yourself with you. If you don?t know who you are, or if you?ve forgotten or misplaced her, then you?ll always feel as if you don?t belong. Anywhere. (xiii)
