Again, we buy into a celebrity culture based on nothing but toothpicks in the sand. The small identity exchange causes the sequence of unexpected events, which leaves you angry, speechless or brings a smile to your face.
I mean, a YA book promoting sex for procreation only and babies as commodities? Cause it’s satire, bitches. This immensely entertaining story, that is light on the surface with a dark premise beneath, will keep readers engaged as all is revealed and everything comes together at the end. Her fan base is enormous. I rooted for both romances, cheered their growing bond and mourned the cliffhanger ending.
Why is availability limited? Anderson’s Feed, the ideal life being exposed for what it is an imitation of Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies series.
Pop song lyrics are crudely graphic, clothing bummped, and the only unmentionable word is “baby. I’m sick and tired of having ,ccafferty sorts of books shelved as YA when they’re obviously not.
Jessica Darling’s It List 3
Last year I read and loved Bumped, the first book in this series. Now, don’t get me wrong. Of course, on the surface our society seems so different, yet there are alarming similarities between our world and the world painted in this book. I don’t know why I decided to pick up the second book of the “Bumped” duology considering the fact that I didn’t particularly like the first one.
Apr 23, Ashley Hunt rated it did not like it. This is a CD cover for one of Korn’s albums. I guess I just wanted to know what happened and how Melody ended up pregnant since she didn’t have intercourse. Not bumps or pregs or deliveries.
The writing is just stunning at times. I get it, it’s supposed to be a satire – the idea of children, no bumpeed babies, having babies and being absolutely obsessed with sex is supposed to be exaggerated.
I’m putting it up here because it adequately describes the feelings this book brought up for me. Mar 08, Ana Mardoll rated it it was amazing Shelves: I found Bumped to be a highly sexual mvcafferty, and perhaps a mccaffegty too sophisticated ideologically for the YA group. There isn’t a lot of controversy or conflict here as far as the book’s message. The characters at first read more like caricatures than real people, but ultimately that felt like the point.
Everyone in this book is dumb. Only teenagers are guaranteed to be fertile, and in order to continue the mccafefrty species, teenagers are encouraged to have sex, to get pregnant as often as they can before the virus strikes them.
It means if a woman wants to breastfeed their children, she have the right to do that. Or so it seems. I guess ever since I read the “Uglies” series, I can’t put up with made up slang too well. I should have known just how committed Esppaol was going to be to making this new dystopian society realistic.
For more of my reviews and other bookish goodness go to: Oct 15, Dark Faerie Tales rated it liked it Shelves: You will read it with ease and cheer on Melody and Harmony as they struggle to decide who they are and what they want. Two girls undergoing a shift in perception, both of themselves and each other.
Just like its predecessor, Thumped was hilarious and had subtle messages about religion, woman’s sexuality, and feminism without being preachy. Think about the deeper consequences in a world where sex is nothing special and intimate anymore.
There are some scenes that are deliberately, I suspect incredibly skin crawly — like young girls trying on fake baby bumps, the rampant sexualisation and view spoiler [a pregnant pre-teen hide spoiler ]. 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.

Future Twin and Religious Twin are sixteen and jccafferty just meeting for the first time. The thing is, the book is totally bumpde. I absolutely adored Thumped. They were both independent thinkers and I loved them for it. She threatened to spank me with a wooden spoon and then she DID. It was essential in Bumped but because Thumped turns the twins’ worlds upside down, it was much more important for them to break free from the story they felt they had to tell and instead, tell the one they wanted to tell.

The plot is definitely smaller and more contained. I am honestly not sure why Bumped and Thumped haven’t received more love from the YA community. I’d been waiting for it for a while and when I got around to reading it, it was such ezpaol let down, in all ways. Melissa As a 7th grade teacher, I would say yes.
There is something quite impressive about the future McCafferty has created, which seems to be both too crazy to be true, and entirely realistic. I have a great love of dystopian fiction but this particular novel failed to live up to my expectations. Jondoe was my favorite character!

I have so far liked the dystopian books I have read, but this felt more like an infomercial for teen pregnancy than about a world gone bad. And Megann and Melody may not be able to keep up the fake image they are showing the world or the lies that they are telling themselves for much longer. This was without a doubt, the strangest book I’ve ever read.
