he first words to my fiancée after reading this were, “That was the oddest thing I think I’ve ever read.” Bumped takes place in 2035, and follows the story of two girls that happen to be identical twins. When I first started reading this dystopian novel, I almost put it down to come back to later or not even finish at all. But I am glad I finished it. The vocabulary in this book is probably the most confusing thing while reading. It took me a while in some sentences to get the tone of the word they were using. It is also hard to differentiate which twin is telling the story at times. Each chapter alternates between Melody and Harmony. There are a lot of religious references in the novel, but don’t let that keep you from reading this. Typical of every dystopian, the characters have to decide if they are going to keep following what society is telling them to do or if they are going to rebel.
