As you know, I read Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy and it wasn’t my favorite book. I liked just about all of the characters other than Willowdean, and though the writing was good, it just wasn’t for me. After reading it, I watched Dumplin’ on Netflix.
I know I’m a million years late, but I finally read Dumplin’! I knew I was going to like it, because I’m a big fan of fat girls owning themselves and doing whatever the heck they want, but seeing that there was a movie adaptation was what pushed me over the edge.
