Thumped by Megan McCafferty

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.

Thumped, by Megan McCafferty, is the sequel to the book Bumped. Even without reading the first in the series it is easy to get into the storyline of this book. The plot is fast paced, fun, and at times, hard to read. The main reason I found the plot of this book so compelling was because of the strange and honestly horrifying topic of the book. I also enjoyed reading about how the individual characters in the books reacting and dealt with the strange world they lived in. Reading this book actually became personal to me; I kept on asking myself, “What would I do in a situation like that?” The author’s writing is also, like the plot, fast-paced, but still is very detailed and imaginative. The different world was described so well down to the tiny details that it made me feel like I was living there along side the characters. The book is a great read not only because it is interesting to read, but because it makes you question the characters reactions to the events, and in effect, makes you wonder how living in a world so different from your own would feel. I recommend this book to preteens and up because of the subject matter, but I feel that any age, ranging from teen to adult, could appreciate and enjoy this book. Thanks to HarperCollins Publishers for the great read!

This book is in stores now

Happy reading!
