“A sparkling, imaginative romp that is nevertheless plenty provocative.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“The well-paced plot and the twins’ alternating narratives will keep readers engaged …. A worthwhile read.” (School Library Journal)
Praise for BUMPED: “McCafferty proves that dystopias don’t have to be dreary to be provocative.” (Publishers Weekly)
Praise for BUMPED: “Sure to keep [readers] thinking.” (Kirkus Reviews)
Praise for BUMPED: “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)
Praise for BUMPED: “Megan McCafferty has conceived a hilarious, touching, truly original novel, told in her trademark, spot-on voice. Readers of every age will delight in this new arrival.” (Rachel Cohn, bestselling author of NICK & NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST)
Praise for BUMPED: “Bumped has it all: a fascinating yet frighteningly believable world, seamless world-building, great humor, and sophisticated word play. The book will start many a discussion and, alas, raise more than a few eyebrows. I suspect the mothers will like it just as much as the daughters. Bumped is the ‘breediest’ novel of the year.” (Gabrielle Zevin, author of ELSEWHERE)
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:

If you're going to buy Bumped, you have to get the sequel at the same time- and block out a whole day, or a weekend, because you won't be able to put them down. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Ms. S

My favorite part of this mini series is the concept. Hence why I bother even giving it a paltry 2 stars. Read morePublished 16 months ago by lovinmyfloors
I forgot how much I liked the story of Melody and Harmony. This is a world that I can’t fathom. The plot is interesting.
Thumped is much more fast-paced than Bumped was. Read more
