Thumped by Megan McCafferty

It's been thirty-five weeks since twin sisters Harmony and Melody went their separate ways. Since then, their story has become irresistible to legions of girls: twins separated at birth and living different lives, each due to deliver sets of twins...on the same day! In a future where only teens can "bump," or give birth, babies mean money, status, and freedom.

Married to Ram and living in religious Goodside, Harmony spends her time trying to fit back into the community she once loved and believed in. But she can't seem to forget about Jondoe, the guy she fell in love with under the strangest of circumstances.

To her adoring fans, Melody has achieved everything she always wanted: a big, fat contract and a coupling with Jondoe, the hottest bump prospect around. But this image is costing her the one guy she really wants.

Cursed by their own popularity, the girls are obsessively tracked by their millions of fans, who have been eagerly counting down the days to their "Double Double Due Date." Without a doubt, they are two of the most powerful teen girls on the planet, and there's only one thing they could do that would make them more famous than they already are:

Tell the truth.

My Review - Although at times this book was really good there were some times where I was like just get on with the point. There was on part where Harmony was giving birth and it says something like she felt like she was pregnant forever and now the twins are coming to fast and she's not ready. I think that's the way I felt when I gave birth. I was so excited but so overwhelmed with how fast it was going. Overall this book was pretty good. I'll definitely read some more of McCafferty's books. Overall I'd probably give it a 3.5 stars.
