Bumped by Megan McCafferty
Review by Kudra, Sonoma Valley Branch
Bumped is a novel about an alternate worlds where a Virus makes everyone over eighteen infertile, adults pay teens to "bump" with each other and have children for them, placing a high price on the teenage girls. Sixteen-year-old twins Harmony and Melody, separated at birth, and either one knowing about the other, until now. Harmony, a church devoted girl journeys to Melody's home, and chaos strikes. Amongst all this, Melody must also fight the attraction to her best friend Zen, for her conception contract which she worked so hard to get fights against it. When Melody's representative pairs her with Jondoe, the most genetically flawless male bumper, and Harmony is confused for Melody, both lives are changed forever.
This book had me engrossed, and I ended up reading it in two days. It is a fairly easy read, but I wouldn't recommend it if you avoid religious stuff. I would recommend this book to people interested in alternate futures, and thrilling books with many plot twists.
