Thumped

by Megan Mccafferty

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | August 27, 2013 | Hardcover

Thumped is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.

It''s been thirty-five weeks since twin sisters Harmony and Melody went their separate ways. Since then, their story has become irresistible to legions of girls: twins separated at birth and living different lives, each due to deliver sets of twins . . . on the same day! In a future where only teens can "bump," or give birth, babies mean money, status, and freedom.

Married to Ram and living in religious Goodside, Harmony spends her time trying to fit back into the community she once loved and believed in. But she can''t seem to forget about Jondoe, the guy she fell in love with under the strangest of circumstances.

To her adoring fans, Melody has achieved everything she always wanted: a big, fat contract and a coupling with Jondoe, the hottest bump prospect around. But this image is costing her the one guy she really wants.

Cursed by their own popularity, the girls are obsessively tracked by their millions of fans, who have been eagerly counting down the days to their "Double Double Due Date." Without a doubt, they are two of the most powerful teen girls on the planet, and there''s only one thing they could do that would make them more famous than they already are:

Tell the truth.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Baby Makers *For more reviews: http://lovesbooksreviews.blogspot.com/ In the sequel to Bumped, Megan McCafferty has created this world that has placed the world at a different perspective if a virus effects humanity. Like Bumped, the main focus of the novel was about teenage pregnancy but beyond that the importance of yourself and family. Melody and Harmony both grow up during this novel through the thirty-five weeks. These twins show that you are not alone and during the read it was really fun read with all the characters. I loved them all in the first books, and even more in Thumped. The writing is awesome as always, I could read this series again for how influential it is and how pregnancy at a young age is still happening today. The novel starts with Harmony back in Goodside who which are evil in my opinion despite the religion but as Harmony realizes she is not happy about her life and is still thinking about the father of her twins Jondoe (I love his character) Jondoe is so funny he lightens up the mood with his personality and the way he changes his life style for Melody who showed him the way to think of God in a different life. In the different point of views from both Melody and Harmony we she that Melody is living a life of fame and her romance with Zen is continually growing. As both twins want each other in their lives they also think that during Harmony's pregnancy that Melody is also pregnant with Jondoe's children so the impending wait of the Double twins due date. The plot was very well put together and along with the knowledge gained from the book that McCafferty does perfectly tell us that contraception is important to wait to have a family rather than selling babies to parents who cant have any due to the virus. It was refreshing to get to see these characters again in their final chapter in Thumped and how much their characters changed in this novel rather in Bumped. The realization and issues brought up in this book today show that Melody has independence for herself as well as her twin Harmony. Megan has done another great job with Thumped and has shown the world today. It was full of unexpected things as well as the way her characters all of whom illustrate the importance that contraception should be used to prevent teenage pregnancy. I also learned many new things from Jondoe lol. Overall it was a good sequel with a lot of messages.
