Bumped by Megan McCafferty

Bumped by Megan McCafferty

I bought this book awhile ago when it was at a special price for iBook. I wasn't too sure about it, the premise sounded odd- teenagers are paid to have sex and get pregnant by adults for the babies. You see, in this world that McCafferty has created, a virus causes people to become sterile once they hit adulthood. The only way to have children is to have a teen "bump". Crazy, right? 

I thought so, too. But is it really all so improbable? Right now, money is being made by showing young teens dealing with pregnancy and motherhood on television. 

Anyway, the real story here is about Melody and Harmony. Twins separated at birth and raised in completely lifestyles. One raised to be a paid teen surrogate, and the other raised with God and the plan to be a teen bride and mom. Both are not happy with their lots in life and with the help of each other and some friends they realize that maybe they don't have to do what their families have planned for them.

Interesting story, interesting new teen language (which I thought was a lot of fun) and an unresolved ending that left me wanting more. So different from the Jessica Darling series, but just as fun to read.
