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.

This book was really good and I loved the realationship between Neilly and Declan! Glad griffin doesn't have a blue mohawk anymore, I could never see Neilly with a guy with a blue mohawk! I still can't believe Neilly dressed up as a baby to the Halloween party, Declan was a dead thing! Good book though!

The relashionship between Neilly and Dec is a great addition to this book. I loved it! I read the whole thing in one sitting!! At times it can be confusing because the book is through 2 point of views, Neilly and Dec, so the book repeats events. Overall good book.!
