THUMPED by Megan McCafferty
About THUMPED (taken from goodreads.com)
Thumped, the sequel to Bumped, manages to be satiric, scary, and romantic at the same time. It continues the story of separated-at-birth twins, Melody and Harmony, girls as engaging as McCafferty’s Jessica Darling. These sisters are the most popular teen girls on the planet. To their fans, they seem to be living ideal lives. Harmony is married to Ram and living in Goodside, the religious community that once meant everything to her. Melody has the genetically flawless Jondoe as her coupling partner, which means money and status—and a bright future.
But both girls are hiding secrets. And they are each pining for the only guys they can’t have…. The biggest risk of all could be to finally tell the truth.
Review of THUMPED
No. Just no. I don’t even know what to write here. I hated the first book but I felt like I needed to finish the series to be able to judge it fairly. This book was just as bad as the first. Both girls (twins) pregnant with twins. How stupid could this get? Well one is faking the pregnancy. Great. Wonderful. She wants to start a rebellion that we know nothing about with her best friend/ the guy she loves and wants to have sex with but not babies.
Could it get worse? Yes. The ending was super predictable and lame. Actually the whole book was lame. The author had this really cool and unique idea and blew. Way to go.
The characters! Still as boring as the first book! I couldn’t connect or relate to anyone which makes for a really hard read. The characters are all whiny, immature and never seem to grow much unless you count they’re stomachs. Basically this was a bad book. Don’t read it.
1 out of 5.
