I just finished reading Sloppy Firsts (my raving review is coming soon) and happened to go on a little hunt for the next installment in the series and any other books Megan McCafferty may have released, I happened upon Bumped...
Posted by Megan McCafferty at her official site:
Bumped is the only reason why I haven’t been totally distraught about ending the Jessica Darling series. I’m spending the rest of 2009 and early 2010 writing it.
Here’s the official announcement via HarperCollins:
Alessandra Balzer at Balzer & Bray/HarperCollins Children’s Books acquired World English rights to New York Times bestselling author Megan McCafferty’s new novel in a two-book deal from Heather Schroder at ICM. Bumped is a sharply funny and provocative dystopian novel set in a world where only teens are able to have babies, and are contracted by adults to carry them to term. Megan is best known for her Jessica Darling series, which started with Sloppy Firsts and most recently ended with Perfect Fifths.
Bumped seems like it could be a little sci-fi, I don't usually tend to enjoy them as much as other books but Sloppy Firsts was so amazing that I'm really excited about the release, enough so that I felt like making up a cover for it.
