No, I've decided, I don't like this series.
-Too preachy
-Too judgemental
-Ending is too abrupt
**SPOILER**
I really, really thought that the double twin pregnancy was true, going in to the book, so that's what I was looking for. Finding out that it was false worked for the motives of the storyline, but I felt let down, in a way. I thought it would have been more interesting if it had been what I thought.

The sequel to Bumped, it was good, but I wish Ms. McCafferty would have made Melody and Zen get together at last. When I found there was a sequel to Bumped, that was my hope; but, alas, it didn't happen. I still enjoyed both books very much. Read Thumped in a little over a day.(tells you what my xmas was like, lol).

Melody and Harmony come into their own and develop into strong characters when they were puppets in the first novel, Bumped.

A nice quick read. Loved the plot twists and drama, though quite predictable with the ending. Everything comes out in the open and people stand up against exploitation about teen pregnancy and how it shouldn't be forced on to teens in order to have a decent education and future.

Whoa! Usually second books do nothing but irritate me. They're just there between books 1 and 3, and usually have some sort of information I have to have to connect the two, but do so in a boring, predicatable or uninteresting way. But Thumped caught me off guard - I started reading it, and next thing I knew an hour had disappeared and I was almost halfway through!

A great continuation of the story - yes, a little predicatable, but with the crazy love quadrangles and decahedrons going on, there are only so many plot lines to pursue. Commentary on teen sexuality is interesting, but I largely ignored that message (although I'm sure for some it might have resonated, whether good or bad) and took it as a great, light-hearted summer read. The language alone was enough to make me giggle!

Great sequel! Really, it felt more like a continuation than a completely different book, which I love. I think it was longer than BUMPED, but I read it much faster. I just could not put it down! I love Melody, Harmony, Jondoe and Zen. Not to mention Ram, who had an even bigger role in this installment. It's too bad that there are only two books, but, then again, there's not much else to say in this story. The world that McCafferty created is so well developed. It's the least depressing dystopia I have ever read. Actually, it's pretty cool. But the issues discussed--sex, pregnancy, exploitation--are all issues I feel strongly about, and McCafferty does not tiptoe around them; she stampedes right through them, and I'm glad. So much more I could say about this book, but I'll just go ahead and say I love it!

Oh, one more thing. The editing was terrible. Seriously. I don't know how many silly mistakes I found. Extra words. Wrong words. Hopefully they fix all those for the next edition.

This sequel felt a lot like the original, Bumped, but more predictable and less interesting. Tries to make "Grand Statements" about teenage sexuality, but comes off feeling tired and preachy. Not recommended unless you want a mindless beach read.
