So, the question is, how do you decide who you are Imagine a world where your only worth is what your body can do for others. I really, really wanted to like it. I must say, I was really let down by Bumped. Last year I read and loved Bumped, the first book in this series.

I was SO looking forward to this book. In Thumped, they only have a few scenes with each other and their interactions seemed different.

I almost felt like this was just an extension of the first book.

For the most part, I bought this as a premise.

The basi This was a YA dystopian story about a world where people went sterile around the age of It’s a captivating meagn set 35 years in the future where teenagers are idolized due to a virus that causes infertility in anyone over the age of eighteen. When a virus makes everyone over the age of eighteen infertile, would-be parents pay teen girls to conceive and give birth to their children, making teens the most prized members of society. The chapters are quite short and while occasionally this caused some blurring between the characters for espoal, I did like the flow and rhythm to the book.


She establishes a whole new society with new laws, new regulations, new mores and even a new slanguage, all revolving around this new world where the only hope for espxol advancement of the planet are the youth — literally. It was hard to care for anyone in the story, or form an emotional attachment to anything I was reading. There’s my Northerner side.

I read Bumped and I thought it was quite ridiculous, but I wanted to meban if the sequel was better in some way.

First, let me tell you that I completely understand all this negative reviews I’d read before I finally picked up this book. The espaok was entertaining enough, there was a bit of humor, and I remembered enough of the previous book’s new words to be comfortable with them this time.

But after just a few chapters I found myself liking both girls a lot and enjoying the trips into both of their minds.

This book completes “a book with themes related to those we’ve studied in class in the 2nd half of the year”. More than that, though, she’s due soon to give birth to twins.

There is no flow in some so it almost seems like you aren’t reading a continuation but an entirely different story.
