I would say that Thumped really isn’t a book for readers who want to relate to characters and live strong emotions through them; the megzn was, to me, more about the world it described and the ideas behind it. Imagine a 13 year old girl, any thirteen year old girl. Though Harmony is raised in a religious atmosphere and is taught from childhood that her ultimate goal in life is to believe what she’s told by the church elders and grow into the roles of wife and mother.

Bumped (Bumped, #1) by Megan McCafferty

Bumped is so different!! What do we owe God? Megah writing was poorly done and felt forced, the characters were unrealistic, and although parts of the storyline increased my interest in the book, the conflicts were too easily solved.

I got extremely annoyed with the character simply mccaffertu of that. It was like, rilly rilly all about young girls pregging for money. The biggest problem I had was why in the world did these teens have to “bump” aka have sex?

Is this book good for a thirteen year old if your parents don’t care what you read? Mar 07, Judit rated it it was amazing.


Yes, this is for the benefit of the public, who is not allowed to know mccaffeerty their feelings for each other, but really? Bumped takes place in a not too distant future, where a virus has caused the onset of infertility between the ages of eighteen and twenty, and teen pregnancy has become a matter of profit and prestige.

I thought some of this type of content could have been removed without changing the intent of the book itself. The duel pictures McCafferty creates are not so extreme they seem impossible, or even so very distant. What can I say about Thumped? What will happen after their births? Both sisters are unhappy, although none of them questions her upbringing in the least. The ending was much too rushed and not really resolved in any way.

I liked seeing where Melody and Zen’s relationship was and how Jondoe was missing Harmony terribly. Whether controlled by Church law or the laws of supply and demand, the fertility of teen girls definitely is a commodity in both communities.

This takes the whole everything-glorious-and-perfect-love-interest thing to an entirely new and disturbing level. Bu,ped book was seriously hilarious and I laughed out so loud so many times that my hubs started to get worried.

Bumped Summary & Study Guide

I feel like reeeeally shouldn’t be young adult books, because of the subject matter, but it’s not written in such a way I could recommend it to another adult that doesn’t write YA.

It is hazy on whether or not “bumped” means to “have sex with” or to “get pregnant with” or both combined into one word. That consistency was good. It ends with obvious loose ends that will continue in the next book. He was just so syrupy sweet and annoying.

To her adoring fans, Melody has achieved everything: In the end, Bumped did not stand up to my expectations. It didn’t have the same feeling as the first book, so maybe that’s why I didn’t like it as much as I wanted to. The basic story was entertaining though, and I ubmped enjoy it.
