We are in danger of living in a world where teen pregnancy, which already elevates some girls mcxafferty celebrity status, will consume us to the point that we, like Melody’s parents, Ash and Ty, are willing to whore out our children to procreate. Overall, this was a fantastic read with well developed characters and some great unique world-building. The only semi-normal, semi-acceptable, semi-catchy phrase to come out of this: That is exactly what This book was crazy good.

The character I mccaffertt most interesting was Harmony. I think for good reason, too. Nov 09, Lindsay rated it really liked it Shelves: Read more from the Study Guide.

Melody was railing against an ideology instead of a ruling body. So here we are: It didn’t have the same feeling as the first book, so maybe that’s why I didn’t like it as bumpdd as I wanted to. I’m still glad I read this, just so I could see the conclusion to the story.

First, Chapters 1 through 5. Thumped picks up eight megah a half months after Bumped ended. The storyline in this had some good ideas, but the way the book was written was a little odd.

A premise like that sounds unmanageable. Married to Ram and living in Goodside, Harmony spends her time trying to fit back into the community she once believed in. Reality has definitely stepped in more so for this book, and it didn’t seem to glorify teenage pregnancy quite as much as the first – it actually helped the reader take a step back and to see how the main characters were trying to change things and make the right decisions.

Melody explained perfectly what was being taken away from this teenage girls by parents, media and peer pressure. However, in Bumped all of these were included and were used in an over the top way. Melody seems to have everything she ever wanted — a relationship with the most famous ReProductive Professional on earth and one of the best Surrogette contracts she could have ever hoped for.

And we’re having meaningless sex to do it!
