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 Melody’s 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.




I'm not sixteen.

I'm not pregnant.

But at this very moment, my mind is like rilly fo sure, officially BLOWN!



There were parts I really hated(Like the jargon to name one).

There were parts I was hurting myself laughing over (like the "Fertilicious" and "EVERYTHINGBUT" comments).

Heck, there were parts I thought my eyes would POP out of my skull!

In the end, I sort of bonded with Melody, Harmony, and Zen! I'm even curious to know what will happen to Ram, Jondoe (aka Gabriel), Shoko, and the Pro/AM Pregg Alliance.


THERE'S JUST ONE THING I CAN NOT LET GO UNSAID: OH NO HARMONY DID NOT COMPARE THAT FOOL TO JESUS.

*hands on my hips*

*SMH*

AND NO HE DID NOT COMPARE HIMSELF TO HIM ALSO!

*rolling my eyes*

Ummmp,ummp, ump....you need JESUS!

  2. Welcome! Yeah it took me a while to get pass all that as well, but when I did, I must say it was pretty cool. The Me-net from the book was like a computer and internet condensed into a contact lens and hearing aid plug. You could navigate like with the mouse with the flick of your eye. Unfortunately they didn't just come right out and say that. You have to figure it all out; and at first it looks like everyone in the book is crazy.
