Bottom line, McCafferty tried too hard to be something she clearly isn’t and that is a futuristic scribe. Would I recommend this to a teen? No. I don’t believe in censoring books, but highly caution one to reconsider since it discusses sex parties and orgies. I am all for safe sex, handing out condoms and am well aware Bumped is fiction, but I have a responsibility to give the facts, nor do I believe reading this will spike teen pregnancy across the globe. I say, if you are up to torturing yourself, read it with the kids in your world and stir up healthy conversations. I am gonna (see, I do use slang) pass on book two.
Bumped had an interesting premise but McCafferty failed on execution.
As for my personal interjection (no pun intended), I gagged so much reading this discombobulating drivel, I thought I was bumped!
