THE CONCLUSION TO ONE OF THE MOST TALKED-ABOUT NOVELS OF LAST YEAR
It’s been thirty-five weeks since twin sisters Harmony and Melody went their separate ways. And now their story has become irresistible: twins separated at birth, each due to deliver twins…on the same day!
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.
I know some people didn’t care much for Bumped, but I loved it and I loved Thumped just as much. It took a little while to get into the first book. It was a strange world with lots of slang, but this time around it was much easier. They didn’t seem to use as much slang or I was just used to it. Either way, it was much easier to get into this story.
Thumped does not pick up right where the first book left off. This makes for some mysterious aspects that are slowly revealed throughout the book. The story moves along nicely with alternating perspectives just like in Bumped. There are plenty of hilarious parts but the book also tackles so many real issues. Of course, teen pregnancy is the big theme but Megan McCafferty also takes on religion, motherhood, and so many more. I think these books are even more poignant right now because of all the birth control and women’s healthcare hoopla going on.
If you loved Bumped you will definitely love this one. I do fully understand why some people didn’t like it. These are not books for everyone, but I adore them.
