Yet, the whole time I was reading it was like a train-wreck – I just couldn’t stop, no matter how bad it was. I would say that Thumped really isn’t a book for readers who want to megwn to characters and live strong emotions through them; the book was, to me, more about the world it described and the ideas behind it.

That’s not to say this book is a cautionary or morality tale. And I was not disappointed!

Bumped Summary & Study Guide

I mean, a YA book promoting sex for procreation only and babies as commodities? Melody was smart and funny, and I liked her voice.

If there is one thing I can’t stand more than slang, it’s repetitive slang. But, turning things around that she doesn’t regret in the first place is a lot tougher than she would have liked. And, she did that without missing the tragic behind and the problems and consequences that comes with young people being only focused on delivering a baby.

Read as a satirical take on current trends, though, Bumped presents some intelligent, relevant commentary on social and economic pressure and the extent to which it shapes our views.

Taken at face value, there is content and style to the story that some readers may find problematic or even objectionable. I feel it is almost too sensitive for preteensso I’m left wondering what demographic this is aimed at. Religious Twin has come to find her and save her soul. 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.

I know, I was hooked within the first few pages. Instead of approaching it from a legislative angle, it’s all about peer pressure and popularity and trends. Speaking of bumping, I know people may find the future-speak in this novel frustrating and annoying, but to me it’s one of the highlights of the novel. I like to imagine their future as very happy and very involved in each other’s lives.

Bumped (Bumped, #1) by Megan McCafferty

It’s a world–much like our own–where children are encouraged to grow up too fast. However, I once had a bulgarian author talk in my old high school, about a book she’d written about communism.

Humor, fast-paced, cute love Source: Really a great series. I hate “the new” anything. In it she explains that the idea for this book came from the media’s fascination with teen pregnancy, from MTV’s Sixteen and Pregnant, to the obsessive news coverage of Bristol Palin and Jamie Lynn Spears.

And as one half of the Hotties with a Double Double Due Date or D4, she and Harmony are what Melody seems bukped have everything she ever wanted — a relationship with the most famous ReProductive Professional on earth and one of the best Surrogette contracts she could have ever hoped for. BUMPED is a layered book that bumpde be good for multiple rereads, as each successive reread reveals a new layer of characterization, wordplay, and world-building that you may have noticed in passing in the first read-through but become really impressed by only in subsequent rereads.


Just the shitty ones.

I’m still so disappointed. So, you megn to go to the mall? And, coincidentially, Foz Meadows wrote a blogpost about feminism and language just recently that covers a lot of themes, feminism and meritocracy amongst other things.

In the end, this just wasn’t for me unfortunately. I rooted for both romances, cheered their growing bond and mourned the cliffhanger ending. Except for that one time. 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. Partially because it is barely developed, despite them living together.

This book shows the same theme as Never Let Me Go because they are both dystopian texts with protagonists’ questioning what is happening to them, and if it is right.

She continues to feel this mcccafferty after being forced to marry a young man who is more interested in boys. It was almost as if their relationship stood still and that they didn’t see each other until this book happened.

But she relies too heavily on crutches from other popular dystopias that distract from the real grit of the story. At the same time, it also made her transition all the more believable. Frankly, I am looking forward to mccaffeerty show.
