Um, we’re already halfway there. When I first read Bumped, I mccaffertyy stunned. McCafferty spends so much time building her society that the human aspect of the relationship between the two sisters suffers. I’ve already read reviews by people who have definitely missed the big picture message because of the perceived story.
Four stars for some great world building and innovative ideas. I’d like to end on a couple of quick thoughts. But perhaps that was entirely the point. In addition, the beginning of the book explains that one of the main characters, Melody, is pregnant. Even though this whole idea scares me to death I might have liked the book a little better if the author hadn’t glorified teen pregnancy so much.

Bumped (Bumped, #1) by Megan McCafferty
Melody is taught to be everything wealthy parents could possibly want in a surrogate mother and taught she is to give birth, give up the child, and go on to college with the money she’s paid.
All preggers at Princeton Day Academy were amateurs, most of whom put deliveries up for nonprofit adoptions. The table-tennis team, however, is undefeated. I honestly don’t know how I feel about it. I finally started getting more excited and interested to know what was going to happen next. Teenagers, one of the easiest mccafgerty groups to influence, have been brainwashed into thinking that it is just and mccadferty for them to become baby-making machines; to sell off their virginity, their womb and their right to a megam in exchange for a secure future and prestige amongst their peers.
I am not saying that you shouldn’t read this. I can’t recommend this book. Bumped is just so over the top.
A virus that most people catch around makes them all infertile so Teens are the only ones that can deliv This one so took me by surprise!
It’s quite chilling when you think that all the media and promotions and sales are being targeted towards the prime demographic: Nov 09, Lindsay rated it really liked it Shelves: That the available fertility indicator sticks could be also used the other way around has not been discovered yet. He and Melody set out to find her together. If you don’t take it too seriously, this book is awesome.
The teens are more than happy to do it. In the same respect, the language used both by Melody and Harmony reflects things about their society and their own personal demons, and says a lot more about them than their thoughts.
Bumped is an extraordinary tale of the two long-lost tween sisters Melody and Harmony, who despite of their identical looks couldn’t be more different. Mar 07, Judit rated it it was amazing.
I started reading the pages quicker and thought maybe I had been misjudging the book all along.
The first thing you notice about this book is the bum;ed amounts of slang dropped on us. They are both clinging to the ideas and beliefs they have been brought up with, in the hopes of shoring up a fast-degrading faith in the rightness of society as it is.
Bumped series 3 8 Jul 11, I’m not really a fan of the idea of religion being pushed upon others so when I was introduced to Harmony in the story I really didn’t care for her but that may just be me and it might not bother others.
I hope she goes back to writing Contemporary YA. This is how you do it, folks.
Bumped Summary & Study Guide
But there was so much tension in offering the chapters alternately from each girl’s point of view that when I reached the end of one chapter, I’d often momentarily skip over the next to read the beginning of the one after that, only just remembering that I’d already done that about a dozen times. It sounds dark, but it’s not. I, personally, almost never feel like reading time is wasted, even if I don’t particularly care for a book.
In order to get that message across, the entire book would need to be infinitely darker. Can’t complain about that! I found Bumped to be a highly sexual read, and perhaps a little too sophisticated ideologically for the YA group. I am mccaffertu a very spiritual person, but this was just too much.
Harmony has spent her whole life in Goodside, a religious community, preparing to be a wife and mother. Get Bumped from Amazon. The basketball, baseball and football teams haven’t had a winning season in years.
Bby 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. With such a grim premise, humans not being able to procreate after the age of eighteen, I guess I was expecting a darker aura about the book.
Does Jane Austen write YA? Melody was smart and funny, and I liked her voice. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
