DUMPLIN' BY Julie Murphy Review

By Julie Murphy

Synopsis (Goodreads) 
Self-proclaimed fat girl Willowdean Dickson (dubbed “Dumplin’” by her former beauty queen mom) has always been at home in her own skin. Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body. With her all-American beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked…until Will takes a job at Harpy’s, the local fast-food joint. There she meets Private School Bo, a hot former jock. Will isn’t surprised to find herself attracted to Bo. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back.

Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant—along with several other unlikely candidates—to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any twiggy girl does. Along the way, she’ll shock the hell out of Clover City—and maybe herself most of all.

With starry Texas nights, red candy suckers, Dolly Parton songs, and a wildly unforgettable heroine—Dumplin’ is guaranteed to steal your heart.

Dumplin' travling 

My Review:
Ahh Dumplin' was such a refreshing read. Julie Murphy did an amazing job touching on sensitive topics , new relationships, and friendships. The book did not lack humor nor did it lack some romance. I loved Willowdean she was an amazing character and strong. The story flowed all together making the pages easier to turn faster and faster. 5/5 Stars!! However I want more, way more! The cover says it all " Go Big or Go Home"
