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:

Tell the truth.

I loved bumped and couldn't wait to get my hands on thumped! I had to know what would happen to the girls.  There was not a moment during this story that I was bored or that felt slow. It flowed and while it wasn't a terrifying nail biter it makes you think. What would our world be like if this happened? Could you live in a society like that? I think Mrs McCafferty bravely tackled a topic in our society that has many up in arms, and I feel that she did it very well.

Melody and harmony came a long way from the start of bumped. They grew closer and truly cared for each other. I also liked the changes we saw in Johndoe. I'm a little sad to be saying god bye to this story and it's characters. But they got an ending that was touching, heartfelt, and which wrapped up this story in a great way. 

I don't want to discuss the meat of this story because I think it should be experienced as you read the book, but I can say that I hope all of you who have enjoyed Bumped carve out some time to give this a read, and any of you who have been weary to read this series I truly hope you change your minds and give it a try.  I give this one 5 starts and strongly recommend this one to all of you!
