It’s a world–much like our own–where children are encouraged to grow up too fast. Personally, I found that I was constantly wanting to smack myself to see if I was dreaming this ridiculousness. In it she explains that the idea for this book came from the bymped fascination with teen pregnancy, from MTV’s Sixteen and Pregnant, to the obsessive news coverage of Bristol Palin and Jamie Lynn Spears. Melody has scored an enviable conception contract with a couple called the Jaydens.
As you’ve probably guessed by now, this book was a huge disappointment.

You can still place a hold on the title, and your hold will be automatically filled as soon as the title is available again.
I think the series yeah In the end, this mgean wasn’t for me unfortunately. The first book focused more on the relationship between Melody and Harmony, the whole baby-making corporation and the potential love interests for the two sisters.

As vehicles to question the norms of the world they live in, they are perfect. They’re imperfect, impetuous, self-centered This causes her to runaway back to her sister in otherside, not only that bat she dyes her hair black and shaves most of it off! The switching perspectives between the two twins worked really well and both protagonists had a distinct voice.
But it was okay, ’cause they were being, like, patriotic, and all the hot girls go Pro anyway, and it’s just a delivery, so who cares? Zen and Melody are supposed to be planning this “Mission”, this rebellion against society and they hardly eve I’m going to be honest, I don’t remember a lot about Bumped.

Even though mccaffefty a bit too love sick, Jondoe is still somewhat likeable. However, the real dystopian fear factor is how close we already are to this future world. Thumped is a captivating must-read conclusion to this series for fans of the first book looking for answers. I also felt that the “mission”, the great plot around which the book is built, was a bit weak. BUMPED is an example of a dystopian society that is so fully realized and self-sustaining that it becomes very difficult for us outsiders bummped Megan McCafferty mccaffeerty the author of the Jessica Darling books, hands-down my all-time favorite contemporary series.
The developments in this book also set a good pace to Thumped so you’ll most likely read this in one sitting. We can’t waste our childhood when we have so many opportunities and don’t have anyone or anything stopping us from enjoying them. In Bumped the Americans of are proud.
The author’s views of God, Jesus, and the Holy Bible are awful. So I’m just going to keep this review short. In fact, McCafferty has done it in an effortlessly ungraphic way. The romance was, I thought, nicely done. The story leads us into what happens when Harmony comes in contact with her sister for the first time and how maybe this whole buying babies may not be the right answer. Harmony struggles with religious doubts, and isn’t comfortable with an arranged marriage to one of her religious ‘brothers’; Melody has been groomed by her parents from day one to be a successful breeder, and struggles with her feelings of being used by those she loves and trusts.

Now, don’t get me wrong. However, I once had a bulgarian author talk in my old high school, about a book she’d written about communism. It became the patriotic thing to do for teenagers to get pregnant and hand over their babies for adoption.

I’m going to be honest, I don’t remember a lot about Bumped. But while to the rest of the world everything seems perfect, not everything is as it seems. The first thing you notice about this book is the excessive amounts of slang dropped on us. There’s still some sailor in it. Good SF on the imagine-one-change and follow out the consequences side, rather too hand-wavy on what would be the real science and reproductive science in the situation; so I’d call it a satirical moral fable rather than SF as such, though it’s certainly not fantasy.
In many ways Thumped falls short of Bumped. Or so it seems.
