Dumplin' (YA)


Book #113 Read in 2015
Dumplin' by Julie Murphy (YA)

Willowdean (called Dumplin' by her mother) is an overweight teen, living in Texas.  Will doesn't shy away from her size; she calls herself fat and tries not to obsess over her weight.  She is a well-adjusted, intelligent and confident girl.  Or at least she is until she has a fight with her best friend and has a handsome boy tell her that he likes her.  Then she begins to doubt her self-worth.  Will Willowdean be able to bounce back to her old self?  This book is full of sarcastic humor and great characters.  There is some teenage romance in it but it is low-key.  Dumplin' is a great protagonist and her story will inspire readers.  I think high school girls will love this book.  I received a copy of this book from Amazon Vine in exchange for a honest review.
