Book Description

April 18 2011

When 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. Girls sport fake baby bumps and the school cafeteria stocks folic-acid-infused food.

Sixteen-year-old identical twins Melody and Harmony were separated at birth and have never met until the day Harmony shows up on Melody’s doorstep. Up to now, the twins have followed completely opposite paths. Melody has scored an enviable conception contract with a couple called the Jaydens. While they are searching for the perfect partner for Melody to bump with, she is fighting her attraction to her best friend, Zen, who is way too short for the job.

Harmony has spent her whole life in Goodside, a religious community, preparing to be a wife and mother. She believes her calling is to convince Melody that pregging for profit is a sin. But Harmony has secrets of her own that she is running from.

When Melody is finally matched with the world-famous, genetically flawless Jondoe, both girls’ lives are changed forever. A case of mistaken identity takes them on a journey neither could have ever imagined, one that makes Melody and Harmony realize they have so much more than just DNA in common.

From New York Times bestselling author Megan McCafferty comes a strikingly original look at friendship, love, and sisterhood—in a future that is eerily believable.

“Bumped has plenty to say about reproductive rights and girls’ place in society.” (ALA Booklist)

“Its central characters become voices of reason while everyone around them acts content with their questionable circumstances.” (MTV.com's Page Turners blog)

“BUMPED is brilliant, innovative, and slightly terrifying. Megan McCafferty delivers!” (Carolyn Mackler, author of TANGLED and the Printz-Honor-book, THE EARTH, MY BUTT, AND OTHER BIG ROUND THINGS)

A little more YA fiction-y than I would have liked, but not a bad story for the right age group.

I found the characters to be a lot more engaging than some reviews suggest. I didn't find it all all difficult to immerse myself in the world the novel presents. I really enjoyed reading this one.

Like many others who LOVED the Jessica Darling series I anxiously awaited the release of something new from Megan McCaferty. While the premise of the book intrigued me, it lacked quite a bit in the actual storyline. The biggest problem I had with the book is that it didn't feel complete. Its obvious that this book doesn't stand alone and is likely carried by future novels in a series. I think that where it differed a lot compared to the Darling series. In the Darling series, while you were still anxious to read the next book and find out what comes next for Jessica, there STILL was a story told within the book. With this one however, its like it ended mid-way through and honestly....I felt a little ripped off. I think the potential for a good story is there but in order to enjoy that story, I'd have to invest in two or three more books. Unfortunately the story so far wasn't enough for me to continue this series.
