SRP 2012 REVIEW: I could not stop reading this book! I was very well written and the world that McCafferty created was so realistic and believable that I got sucked in. One of the things that I was very torn on was the way that she relieved the different aspects of the society Melody was living in. I liked that she didn't just tell you what the MiNet was, for example, but let you figure it out as you read. This made it more realistic because who describes objects they use everyday? However, waiting for the context clues was a little frustrating because she would be talking about something and you weren't quite sure what it was. Overall though, it was a fantastic dystopian novel!

SRP 2012 REVIEW: I liked this book because it shows the power of the media over public opinion. Bumped portrays society 2036, where a virus has taken over the world's population, and no one over the age of 18 can have kids. This means that the government and media must encourage every teen to "bump", or get pregnant, by making it seem vogue.

SRP 2011 REVIEW: This book is a super quick read, but definitely very young-adult. Not my favorite book, but I will probably read the sequel. :) I wish she had explained a little more about the MiNet thing - I still don't really understand that part - is it in her head? What a weird and sad life for all these teenagers who are pregnant all the time for the sake of the society.
