The irresistible companion to the #1 New York Times bestseller Dumplin’, now a Netflix feature film starring Danielle Macdonald and Jennifer Aniston, and a soundtrack by Dolly Parton! Millie Michalchuk has gone to fat camp every year since she was a little girl. Not this year. This year she has new plans to chase her secret dream of being a newscaster—and to kiss the boy she’s crushing on. Callie Reyes is the pretty girl who is next in line for dance team captain and has the popular boyfriend. But when it comes to other girls, she’s more frenemy than friend. When circumstances bring the girls together over the course of a semester, they surprise everyone (especially themselves) by realizing that they might have more in common than they ever imagined. A story about unexpected friendship, romance, and Texas-size girl power, this is another winner from Julie Murphy.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Erin Mallon’s raspy timbre adds an edge to the humorous sarcasm of Millie Michalchuk…Kyla Garcia’s portrayal of Callie also has shades of cynicism. Garcia captures Callie’s initial tones of superiority and then adds notes of vulnerability when her arrest leads to disgrace. Both narrators provide believable renditions of how the girls’ grudging acceptance of each other grows into mutual respect and support. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Splendid.” Booklist (starred review)
“Murphy’s plot brims with unlikely friendships, irresistible romance, fabulous fat acceptance, and a kick-ass ending. Buoying.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Through the girls’ alternating perspectives, Murphy develops their aspirations and struggles…Convincingly and satisfyingly portrays how their one-step-forward-two-steps-back bonding process helps them go for what they want rather than what others think is possible.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Full of humor and heart…Builds nicely on the themes of self-confidence and self-acceptance without falling into lecture…Readers can’t help but cheer.” School Library Journal
“Told in alternating chapters, the when-worlds-collide story goes deep as the girls form an unlikely friendship that reveals their strengths and weaknesses and shows the possibilities that open when stepping outside one’s comfort zone…Murphy’s energetic writing style makes for compulsive readability.” Booklist
“I’m wildly in love with this book.” Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda
Dumplin’ should be required reading for anyone who has ever felt even slightly uncomfortable in his or her skin.” John Corey Whaley, author of Where Things Come Back, on Dumplin’
“It’s hilarious, it’s heartfelt, and it’s so, so real.” Robin Talley, New York Times bestselling author, on Ramona Blue
“A must-have work that will resonate with teens.” School Library Journal on Ramona Blue
