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

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

The girls’ every move is analyzed by millions of fans eagerly counting down to “Double Double Due Date.” They’re two of the most powerful teen girls on the planet, and they could do only one thing to make them even more famous:

Tell the truth.

Review:

Thumped starts off 35 weeks from where Bumped ended. The twins, Melody and Harmony, have not seen each other for so long and now their story has become bigger than ever: twins separated at birth, each due to deliver twins!

Harmony has returned to Goodside with her husband, Ram, and is trying to fit back into the lifestyle there once again. And even though she misses Jondoe horribly, she can’t bring herself to leave Goodside again, until the Elders do something that triggers her to flee once again. Melody is back in Otherside living the life she always wanted. She’s scored a major contract and bumped with hottest brand ever. Too bad it’s costing her to be with Zen, the guy she really loves.

These two girls’ lives collide once again, and they need each other more than ever. They have the fame and the money, but are they really happy?

Thumped is funny, brilliant and amazingly unique. It takes you through a series of twist and turns. Two pregnant twins and two amazingly handsome guys, combine to be a crazy roller coaster in this dystopian novel. The sequel, and conclusion, to the best-selling Bumped will make you think about life in the future and how teen pregnancy can really affect a person.

Megan McCafferty creates such an odd world that’s worth reading about. The choices made in this final book can relate to some teens today, and really help in making the difficult decisions that come with pregnancy, sex, and even parental issues. This series is educational in a way that you don’t even realize, because you are so enthralled in the story. But after it’s done, you realize everything that these two girls went through, and how much others can relate to it.

  1. I have not read it, but I’m dying to. They both sound awesome.

  2. I have read Bumped.

    The whole thing is about issues I hate, namely babies and pregnancy. I expected to loathe the book, and read it solely out of a commitment to dystopias and because I enjoyed Sloppy Firsts.

    But I loved it. This is a sign of quality.

  3. I really enjoyed Bumped. I love that she crosses the boundaries that YA fiction tends to stray from. Enjoyed getting fully immersed into the world with the language. Can’t wait for Thumped.

  4. I haven’t read it yet, but I would appreciate the “Bump” to read it!

  5. I haven’t read it yet, but I really want to. People have told me it’s a pretty good book.

  6. Have you read BUMPED (book 1) What did you think of it? What issues did the author address in this novel that you enjoyed or disliked? why?

    I’ve read it last year and I loved it! Although the book was set it the future and proposed a dystopian premise, the main focus of the book was the relationship of the sisters Harmony and Melody. It was more of a Young Adult/Coming of Age book for me rather than it being a dystopian book. It really centered on the issues of choices(or lack thereof) that the sisters need to make and it illustrates the choices that we ourselves need to make in our daily lives.

  7. Have you read BUMPED (book 1) What did you think of it? I have read book one and thought it was amazing. What issues did the author address in this novel that you enjoyed or disliked? I enjoyed the addressing of parent’s pressures towards their children and ideals that certain people have that aren’t necessarily good. why? Because it is thought provoking and an interesting subject, for me, to read about.

    I have read book 1. I really didn’t think I’d like it, but the subtle dystopian elements really pulled me in. I’m a sucker for an interesting, innovative dystopian novel. :D

  9. Toni Dantin says:

    I have not read it yet, one of my friends recommended it to me and I think it sounds very interesting. I have it on hold at my public library. :))

  10. Amanda S. says:

    Im a twin so the idea of being seperated from her or never knowing her is something I couldn’t even imagine. I like how the big issue with teen pregnancy and how its being glorified with shows like TeenMom (which is doing an oppsite effect with message to teens if you ask me) and I find it sad cause kids are looking at their lives and thinking being a teenager and getting pregnant might not be so bad. And this world is not far from our world only in theirs its the only way life can continue and they are getting paid. I liked this book even though it was predictable , the message was good.

  11. I have read Bumped.
    The fact that drew me to the bbook was that it covered the topic of pregnancy and as everybody knows, YA books rarely deal with such ubjects.. It was written very tastefully. Cant wait to read Thumped!

  12. I haven’t read Bumped but I really want to because I’ve heard such good things about it =)
