Bumped is a satirical look at a world where teenaged girls have become the most prized members of society. It is fashionable for young girls to wear fake baby bumps and sport shirts with slogans like "Born to Breed." Teen social structure and status revolves around whether they are professional "Surrogettes" or strictly amateurs without agent representation. Harmony is from a puritanical religious community where girls are groomed for arranged marriage and motherhood at a very early age. While the two girls come from the most extreme opposite cultures, they do ultimately struggle with the same realization that women are only valued to the extent of their reproductive capacity. They both yearn for deeper connections and by the end of the book are well on their way to achieving them. While there is some occasional graphic language in the book (sh-t, b-tch, f--k), the majority of the language is futuristic slang for male body parts, reproductive organs, and the business of making babies ("humping," "bumping," "breedy bits"). There are references (but no description whatsoever) to group sex parties, and kids who do "everything but" (since the prized virginity is important for the pregging contract). The idea of the actual act as a gesture of intimacy between two people who are in love is separate from the business of creating babies. This would be a good choice for older teens who can appreciate the satire of the situation.
