Description

Megan McCafferty's Bumped series of books are must-read teen dystopian fiction, along with Ally Condie's Matched series and Veronica Roth's Divergent trilogy. Thumped, the sequel to Bumped, manages to be satiric, scary, and romantic at the same time. It continues the story of separated-at-birth twins, Melody and Harmony, girls as engaging as McCafferty's Jessica Darling. These sisters are the most popular teen girls on the planet. To their fans, they seem to be living ideal lives. Harmony is married to Ram and living in Goodside, the religious community that once meant everything to her. Melody has the genetically flawless Jondoe as her coupling partner, which means money and status--and a bright future. But both girls are hiding secrets. And they are each pining for the only guys they can't have.... The biggest risk of all could be to finally tell the truth.

        June 1, 2012

        Gr 9 Up-Science fiction frequently introduces readers to mind-bending scenarios, and Thumped is no exception. In this dystopian sequel to Bumped (HarperCollins, 2011), readers return to New Jersey in 2036. A virus has infected the population, rendering almost everyone over the age of 18 infertile. To ensure an adequate national birthrate, teenagers are encouraged by the government to procreate. Patriotic surrogacy is a lucrative way for high school girls to fund their higher educations, and for some, it's even a path to fame. Melody and Harmony, twins separated at birth but now recently reunited, are both pregnant with twins of their own. As their "double double due date" approaches and their fame skyrockets, they search for a way to use their media platform to address the importance of a young woman's right to choose her own reproductive future-even if it means exposing damaging lies. The well-paced plot and the twins' alternating narratives will keep readers engaged. Although sex and reproduction are frequently discussed, it's never in a graphic manner. A worthwhile read for teens beginning to think about their personal reproductive choices.-Lindsay Cesari, Baldwinsville School District, NY
