Bumped by Megan McCafferty

Bumped is about the USA in the not so distant future, where a virus has made everyone over the age of 18 infertile. Kinda plausible.

Since no one over 18 can have children, teenage girls are getting pregnant and giving away their babies for a profit to older couples.

Melody is the girl that first started the getting pregnant for a profit, and she is one of the last girls that isnt pregnant. Her life is going great, until she finds out she has a twin sister.

When her sister shows up at Melody's house, things take a turn for the worst. Identity is mistaken, people are betrayed, lies are shared, and two sisters learn how complex the other one is.

Did not have high hopes for this one. I think it glamorized teen pregnancy to be completely honest and that is something we dont need anymore of. But it did have a few interesting twists and it was a quick read. Overall its probably 3/5
