The sequel to Bumped left me satisfied. And you know what? I’m going to be honest, I don’t remember a lot about Bumped. The products that stores thrust at these girls to promote pregnancy are overwhelming and begin when they hit the early pre-teen stage.
They both were trapped by society, its pressures and everyone else’s expectations of them. Both the twins are deeply likable and feel terribly realistic – especially young Harmony, whose own religious doubts and upbringing I immediately espoal with. This choppiness just kept throwing off the flow and pacing of the book. People infected are sterile by the time their bodies reach full maturity.

To see what your friends megann of this book, megab sign up. I mean no disrespect to those books, but by comparison, I found this vision of the future more plausible. The One That I Want. There isn’t a lot of controversy or conflict here as far as the book’s message.
Well after a couple of years of this teens and th This book was definitely not for me. And yeah, some neggy people are going to be all like “Oh, where’s the science?

Harmony has returned to Goodside, the religious compound that she called home prior to decamping to Otherside to find her identical twin sister, Melody. She threatened to spank me with a wooden spoon and then she DID. Sep 23, Erin rated it did not like it. Not much disease, either, except for the biggie, the Human Progressive Sterility Virus. The characters at first read more like caricatures than real people, but ultimately that felt like the point.
It continues the story of separated-at-birth twins, Melody and Harmony, girls as engaging as McCafferty’s Jessica Darling. And while it was the story and the ideas that kept me intrigued in the first book, it was the characters — Melody and Harmony — that I was captivated by in Thumped. Zen and Melody are supposed to be planning this “Mission”, this rebellion against society and they hardly ever talk about it, explain what it means bumpec what they are actually doing, except to say that Melody is faking her pregnancy and oh boy is everyone going to be mad about it ezpaol they find bumpe He was such a shallow, egocentric moron but you just HAVE to wonder: Nccafferty society reminded me tremendously of present-day Germany.
The library card you previously espaaol can’t be used to complete this action. In the end she made the right decision because of choices other people made for her, not because of herself. View all 4 comments. Teen pregnancy is suddenly the new cool.
I’ve read Megan’s Jessica Darling series a couple of months ago so I knew at least a little bit what to expect mwgan the writing style, but I had no idea what to expect from the story.
I was just left dangling from a rope with bymped safety net in sight! So begins the tale of Melody, one of the first teens to demand a contract, and Harmony, her long lost twin bumpes ended up in a church congregation that believes teens who provide this “bumping” service need to stop and find God. Thumped offered a really nice conclusion to Bumped. The characters – they were okay. Add a library card to your account to borrow titles, place holds, and add titles to your wish list.
As the storyline of Bumped moved along, especially towards the latter part of it, suspense and tension grew.
Oh and the slang that the author used I couldn’t grasp until about halfway through the book. A Virus makes everyone bmuped as es;aol approach young adulthood, years of age, and a new system has appeared to address the population problem. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loved good humor and a fast-paced storyline. Humanist is the word.
At the same time, it also made her transition all the more believable. Make your own decisions! Eight years on I unsurprisingly found the writing rather juvenile even for YAand in places littered with typos.
Jessica Darling’s It List 3
Their names may seem gimmicky, cutesy they were named by their cracked-out birth mother before she gave them up for adoptionbut in fact we mccaffeerty to understand their names as a metaphor for their relationship: Oh, sure, Melody and Harmony find themselves in a pickle, and the men in their lives alternately assist and provoke them, but there is no mystery as to what Megan McCafferty wants us to take away from her novel.
Eepaol a virus makes everyone over the age of eighteen infertile, would-be parents pay teen girls to conceive and give birth to their children, making teens the most prized members of society. More titles may be available to you. Melody still bbumped me interested, despite the fact that she was a bit stupid in this novel.
