“Bumped” and “Notes from the Blender”

If you’re looking for a seriously funny book, try one of these:

Notes from the Blender by Trish Cook and Brendan Halpin
Dec has a crush on Neilly.  Neilly doesn’t know Dec exists…that is until she finds out she’s going to be his stepsister.   Hilarity ensues as Dec and Neilly become friends, join a youth group, give each other dating advice, and deal with a new family.  Notes from the Blender is a surprisingly funny look at stepfamilies, relationships and death metal.
Bumped by Megan McCafferty
A satirical look at teen pregnancy, Bumped takes a serious topic and makes you laugh out loud while pondering pop culture.

In the near future a virus has caused wide-spread infertility, leading to high rates of teen pregnancy (teens are the only ones still able to have babies).  Melody and Harmony are twins, separated at birth and raised by very different communities.   When they meet for the first time, each sister brings a unique perspective that begins to change how the other looks at their world.  I know it sounds super serious and it will get you thinking, but it’s also very funny!
