I can't wait to read this novel, an upcoming release by
Megan McCafferty, bestselling author of the Jessica Darling series. Check out the jacket copy below. Compelling, don't you think? :-) Megan is choosing two fans to receive advanced copies of the novel. My fingers are crossed. I won a signed copy of SLOPPY FIRSTS last year for my wining Marcus-Flutie-themed haiku... maybe I can win a copy of BUMPED, too.
“When a virus makes everyone over the age of eighteen infertile, would-be parents are forced to pay teen girls to conceive and give birth to their children, making teens the most prized members of society.
Sixteen-year-old identical twins Melody and Harmony were separated at birth and had never met until the day Harmony shows up on Melody’s doorstep. Until now, the twins have followed completely opposite paths. Melody has scored an enviable conception contract with a couple called the Jaydens. While they are searching for the perfect partner for Melody to bump with, she is fighting her attraction to her best friend Zen, who is way too short for the job.
Harmony has spent her whole life in religious Goodside, preparing to be a wife and mother. She believes her calling is to bring Melody back to Goodside and convince her that “pregging” for profit is a sin. But Harmony has secrets of her own that she is running from.
When Melody is finally matched with the world-famous, genetically flawless Jondoe, both girls’ lives are changed forever. A case of mistaken identity takes them on a journey neither could have ever imagined, one that makes Melody and Harmony realize they have so much more than just DNA in common.”
Bumped will be hitting the shelves April 26, 2011!
