When a virus makes everyone over the age of eighteen infertile, would-be parents pay teen girls to conceive and give birth to their children, making teens the most prized members of society. Girls sport fake baby bumps and the school cafeteria stocks folic-acid-infused food.Sixteen-year-old identical twins Melody and Harmony were separated at birth and have never met until the day Harmony shows up on Melodys doorstep. Up to now, the twins have followed completely opposite paths. Melody has scored an enviable conception contract with a couple called the Jaydens. While they are searching for the perfect partner for Melody to bump with, she is fighting her attraction to her best friend, Zen, who is way too short for the job. Harmony has spent her whole life in Goodside, a religious community, preparing to be a wife and mother. She believes her calling is to convince Melody that pregging for profit is a sin. But Harmony has secrets of her own that she is running from.When Melody is finally matched with the world-famous, genetically flawless Jondoe, both girls lives are changed forever. A case of mistaken identity takes them on a journey neither could have ever imagined, one that makes Melody and Harmony realize they have so much more than just DNA in common.From New York Times bestselling author Megan McCafferty comes a strikingly original look at friendship, love, and sisterhoodin a future that is eerily believable.

Mehso-so

There are a few YA books out right now that I‘ve heard compared to The Handmaids Tale so naturally I decided to read them all. I wasn‘t totally into this until I was close to 75% of the way through, but it‘s a super easy read and something about it kept me turning the pages. It‘s also the first of a duology, so now I‘m going to grab the sequel from the library.

Larkken I‘m just not that into dystopian fiction these days. I miss when it was a cautionary tale, not a plausible near future 😭 (edited) 7mo
IndoorDame @Larkken I know what you mean, but for me that makes it more important to keep engaging with 7mo

So after 6 months of unexpected pregnancy, sickness, migraines and neurology appointments I am finally feeling well enough to read again! I‘ve been in Morocco this week and managed to finish my first book this year 🤩 AND discovered this baby bump is excellent for hands free airplane kindle reading! 😄I‘ve missed you Littens it‘s good to be back!

DebReads4fun Welcome back! 4y
bewareofwords Yay!! So glad you‘re feeling better!! That‘s a big win. 👏🏽 4y
Magpiegem @bewareofwords thank you, it is!! This is my third baby and it gets harder and harder to find any time to read. Especially in the first couple of years with every little one. So I need to make the most of the next three months before reading goes out the window again! Xx 4y

bewareofwords @Magpiegem That makes perfect sense! I‘m having my first baby in August, and I‘m mentally preparing to lose a lot of reading time too. I can only imagine it gets harder with every child! 4y
Magpiegem @bewareofwords congratulations! I hope you are feeling well. When are you due? I‘m due 19th August 😊 Audiobooks will become your best friend!!! This is the first time I will have a kindle paperlight too for nighttime feeds - God bless technology!!! 😄 4y
bewareofwords @Magpiegem No way!! I‘m due August 7th. 🤗 I‘m hoping to use audiobooks too, but I might manage some Kindle books too haha! 4y

I'm about 50 pages in and intrigued by the story but really turned off by over the top stereotypical tweeny slang. "For serious", cutesy abbreviations, etc.

The concept of the story is different which I can appreciate but the overuse of God was ridiculous and the juvenile language was annoying. Phrases such as; bumping instead of having sex, pregg for giving birth, rilly instead of really. Melody‘s character was the more believable and likable of the twins. This magical virus that renders everyone over the age of 18 infertile is never explained, it just happens.
