Thumped (Bumped #2) by Megan McCafferty

Thumped (Bumped, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Megan McCafferty’s Bumped series of books are must-read teen dystopian fiction, along with Ally Condie’s Matched series and Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy.

Thumped, the sequel to Bumped, manages to be satiric, scary, and romantic at the same time. It continues the story of separated-at-birth twins, Melody and Harmony, girls as engaging as McCafferty’s Jessica Darling. These sisters are the most popular teen girls on the planet. To their fans, they seem to be living ideal lives. Harmony is married to Ram and living in Goodside, the religious community that once meant everything to her. Melody has the genetically flawless Jondoe as her coupling partner, which means money and status—and a bright future.

But both girls are hiding secrets. And they are each pining for the only guys they can’t have…. The biggest risk of all could be to finally tell the truth.

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Thumped (Bumped, #2)This was an interesting sequel, and it was good to find out what happened to Melody and Harmony in the end.

The characters in this were maybe a little more mature than they were in the first book, but they still made some questionable decisions, especially Melody’s decision to (highlight to view spoiler - fake a pregnancy. )

The storyline in this was about Harmony’s pregnancy, and Jondoe trying to get back in contact with her after she ran away back to her husband. I did enjoy finding out what happened to the girls though, and I liked this book more than the first one.

The ending to this was pretty good, and I liked the way that Melody stood up for her beliefs about teenage pregnancy.

7 out of 10
