Thumped, by Megan McCafferty

thumpedLast year, when I read Bumped, I really, really enjoyed it. A commercially-based dystopia – something completely unique! I was really looking forward to Thumped, but the book didn’t work quite as well for me as Bumped did. There wasn’t a whole lot wrong with it – the writing was less tight, and it got a bit preachy/moralizing in bits – but it just didn’t have the same flare as Bumped for me. Bumped made me laugh, it surprised me in many places, and there was far more character development. Thumped was far more about plot, and the seemingly-required plan to overthrow the dystopia world that exists in today’s YA dystopia. That made it much less interesting to me. Still glad I read it, and it was a lot of fun, one of those books you read in a single session because you don’t want to put it down. I just wish there had been a little bit more to it.
