When a virus makes everyone over the age of eighteen infertile, would-be parents are forced to pay teen girls to conceive and give birth to their children, making teens the most prized members of society.Why?
Sixteen-year-old identical twins Melody and Harmony were separated at birth and had never met until the day Harmony shows up on Melody’s doorstep. Until now, the twins have followed completely opposite paths. Melody has scored an enviable conception contract with a couple called the Jaydens. While they are searching for the perfect partner for Melody to bump with, she is fighting her attraction to her best friend Zen, who is way too short for the job.
Harmony has spent her whole life in religious Goodside, preparing to be a wife and mother. She believes her calling is to bring Melody back to Goodside and convince her that “pregging” for profit is a sin. But Harmony has secrets of her own that she is running from.
When Melody is finally matched with the world-famous, genetically flawless Jondoe, both girls’ lives are changed forever. A case of mistaken identity takes them on a journey neither could have ever imagined, one that makes Melody and Harmony realize they have so much more than just DNA in common.
There is one series that I will love forever, and I will constantly recommend it to everyone. It's surprising that I haven't mentioned it on this blog yet, seeing as how I am completely in love with it. And that series is the Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty. So it only makes sense that Bumped would be a book that I am dying to read, especially since I loved every one of the Jessica Darling books.Jane
That being said, Bumped is a book that I don't even need a summary for... I know it'll be good no matter what it's about. But having read the summary, I am now fully convinced. It sounds fabulous!
If you haven't read the Jessica Darling series, go read it now! Although, um, I suppose younger readers must be warned for some adult content.
(Perhaps I should go re-read those books and post reviews? Hmmm. Must consider that)
