Description

The irresistible companion to the #1 New York Times bestseller DumplinA??, 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 newscasterA??and to kiss the boy sheA??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, sheA??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.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Erin Mallon's raspy timbre adds an edge to the humorous sarcasm of Millie Michalchuk, a returning character from Julie Murphy's debut novel, DUMPLIN'. Millie's view of herself as a fat girl diminishes her hopes for her future as a newscaster. But things change when she unexpectedly becomes friends with a popular girl named Callie. There's history between the two. Callie is the one girl Millie was able to identify of those who vandalized her uncle's gym. 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. S.W.
