bookshelves: young-adult-fiction, read-2011
Read from February 18 to 19, 2011

While I found the idea of a futuristic society where everyone over 18 is infertile so young teens become prized for their reproductive abilities to the point that some are professionally employed breeders interesting, Bumped just fell flat. The characters Zen and Melody seemed somewhat well rounded and for a bit I was genuinely interested to see what would happen between them, but in the end their counterparts in Harmony and the awful Jondoe were so one dimensional and unrealistic that I couldn't wait to finish and be done with Bumped and whatever sequel/s are still to come.

Jamie I picked this up... and then put it down. I'm curious to see how you like it.

camilla i think it was not very good at all.

Jessica I was really, really disappointed by this book. If I wasn't forced to review it, I would have stopped reading it.

camilla I kinda wish I had stopped but I had such high hopes because I love McCafferty's Jessica Darling series. I don't know how Bumped got so far away from her usual genius.
