More Book Bloggers Love BUMPED

With just two weeks until the April 26th publication of BUMPED (but what are official publication days in a world where you can pre-order at any time?) these book bloggers are making me more excited than ever to share it with you all:

“BUMPED doesn’t just color outside the lines a little bit; it paints its picture in 3D…It is a must read for every teenager entering high school and for anyone who has ever felt like they didn’t fit in.” Sera Rivers

“This was a fantastic book. I’ve been completely burned out on YA lately, especially YA dystopia, but I decided to make an exception for BUMPED. I’m so glad I did. McCafferty took an idea that is frowned upon in our society (teen pregnancy) and made a world that treats it like its salvation. It shows just how strongly circumstance is attached to our ideas of right and wrong.” The Zen Leaf

“I love that Megan takes on the hot-button issues, injects some sarcasm and humor, and still manages to make her reader think, and I mean really think, about the issues at hand…This may be a classic case of a book that is so perfect for YA readers that many adult gatekeepers think it is too much for them.  McCafferty does a fantastic job and I highly recommend BUMPED.” The Reading Zone

“The world of BUMPED is cleverly drawn and realistic, and what I loved best about the book was the scary way in which I could really see this happening. As a sensible-minded woman living in 2011, I can’t say that parts of the story didn’t horrify me — but I think that was the point…It’s slightly deranged and creepy, sure, but also somehow . . . plausible. And fascinating. And addictive. That’s what made it work.” Write Meg!

“It’s interesting, fresh, and plays brilliantly on the growing dystopia trend. It takes real problems that we have now and twists them into something grotesque that captivates us so completely that we can’t look away. I cannot wait to read the next in the series and I can only imagine that it will be even better than this.” The Lady Critic’s Library

“Fundamentally, BUMPED isn’t about capitalism or cults – it’s about the abuses that take place when the youngest and most vulnerable members of society have all vestige of choice stripped from them and instead the older and the upper-class decide how to best use them as human commodities sacrificed to ideology and greed.” Ana Mardoll’s Ramblings

“Reminiscent of Atwood’s THE HANDMAID’S TALE, BUMPED is a fast-paced dystopian novel that distills issues of love, friendship, faith, loyalty, and family to their essence. McCafferty blends drama and humor effortlessly, populating a disconcerting world with refreshingly complicated characters. A cliffhanger ending will have readers clamoring for the sequel.” Points West

P.S. If you’re in the New Jersey area, I’ve got events at Barnes & Noble in Princeton (Marketfair) on 4/26 at @7PM and at Barnes & Noble in Brick on 5/4 @7PM. I hope to see many of you there! (And for those who can’t get my autograph in person, I’ll announce an opportunity to get signed swag very soon…)
