Declan loves death metal--particularly from Finland. And video games--violent ones. And internet porn--any kind, really. He goes to school with Neilly Foster and spends most of his classroom time wondering what it might be like to know her, to talk to her, maybe even to graze against her sweater in the hallway. Neilly is an accomplished gymnast, naturally beautiful, and a constant presence at all the best parties (to which Declan is never invited). She's the queen of cool, the princess of poker face, and her rule is uncontested-- or it was until today, when she's dumped by her boyfriend, betrayed by her former BFF Lulu, and then informed she's getting a new brother--of the freaky fellow classmate variety. Declan's dad is marrying Neilly's mom. Soon. Which means they'll be moving in together.

3.5/5This was nothing like I expected, but I liked it a lot anyways. Both Declan and Neilly are fun characters, but Declan is the star in this book, IMO.
For the most part I really enjoyed this story. The contrasting voices of Declan and Neilly played off each other perfectly. The authors really got into each characters head and brought the reader in as well. Declan was funny and slightly charming for a 16 year old boy obsessed with sex. And Nei...
"Notes from the [Family] Blender" is a book which grew only slowly on me because of one of the two main characters (yes, this book has switching points of view by two different authors): During the first chapters the guy, Declan, presents himself to us as the kind of teenage boy I always thought I c...
