It’s been thirty-five weeks since twin sisters Harmony and Melody went their separate ways. And now their story has become irresistible: twins separated at birth, each due to deliver twins…on the same day!
Married to Ram and living in Goodside, Harmony spends her time trying to fit back into the community she once believed in. But she can’t forget about Jondoe, the guy she fell for under the strangest of circumstances.
To her adoring fans, Melody has achieved everything: a major contract and a coupling with the hottest bump prospect around. But this image is costing her the one guy she really wants.
The girls’ every move is analyzed by millions of fans eagerly counting down to “Double Double Due Date.” They’re two of the most powerful teen girls on the planet, and they could do only one thing to make them even more famous:
Tell the truth.”

My Rating: êêêê

My Review: I have not read a “due-ology” before. It fit the series though, seeing as there’s a “due-date.” This book was really funny. The word-play is amazing as ever. I can’t believe how creative the author is to come up with all of these words. I thought the story line was great. The ending wrapped up really well. The characters were still awesome. The switching perspective between Melody and Harmony. I was very surprised about what we found out about Ram, and it worked out pretty well. I never thought I’d like a series about pregnancy or sex, but this series was fun, and I definitely am not interested in having sex or babies yet, so I can relate to Melody. Faking it would so not be worth it, though.

So this is the funniest Dystopian book series ever and I rilly recommend it. For serious. It is fertilicious. Pregg-tastic. Lol. Love these made up words.

Cover Art Review: The egg has been cracked! What, no baby chick inside? Lol. The cover’s just perfect. If there was a 3rd book (which there won’t be). How would the egg be “Humped” or “Dumped”?
