Thumped (Bumped, #2)Thumped (Bumped, #2)
by Megan McCafferty

304 pages
Published April 24, 2012


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.

I loved this book. I couldn't put it down--meaning, I read it in a day.

While I enjoyed the first book, if I'm being totally honest, Harmony and Melody kinda got on my nerves. Just a little. But in this one, they didn't. The whole concept of the books is fantastic. One of the things that makes it so good is that, given the right circumstances, I could easily see our society turning into the one in the book.

I don't want to give any spoilers, but I have to say I loved the way everything unwound when Harmony goes into labor. It was great.

4/5 stars
