I made the mistake of watching the movie first- never a good idea. At first, I had a difficult time avoiding comparisons. However, as is typical, the book was much better than the movie. ( )

Content Note: (critical treatment of) fatmisia

Plot:
Willowdean, known by most people as Will, but always Dumplin’ to her mother, is a fat teenager who is actually rather comfortable with herself. She lives with her mother Rosie, a former beauty queen who is still very active in organizing the pageant. When Will starts working at a local fast food joint, she meets Bo who works there, too. He is a hot, private school jock – and he is also likeable and seems to be into Will. Will doesn’t know how to deal with that and finds herself doubting where she was always confident before. To give herself a confidence boost, she decides to compete in her mother’s pageant – horrifying her mother and inspiring some other girls who never thought they would to go for it, too.

Dumplin’ is a fun, cute and above all quick read that is easily devoured and says a lot of smart things about being fat while it’s at it. I really enjoyed it.

Dumplin' has been on my list for a while, and although YA Fantasy is usually more my jam, I love a sweet YA coming of age story as well. Reading this book was kind of like sipping a glass of perfectly sweetened lemonade: not too sweet, not too tart. Refreshing, but to be honest, a bit boring.

I enjoyed the experience of reading the book, and I LOVED Willowdean's (adorable name) sense of body positivity and message. However, I wanted a lot more of the feelings within the book to be fleshed out. I didn't get the chemistry with her and Bo, and I thought a lot of the backstory with him to be kind of a toss away.

I think there was maybe just a bit too much going on within the book, so we never got to do a deep dive into any of the storylines/emotions. Enjoyed, but fell a bit flat for me. ( )

This is a cute, body-positive, empowering story about loving yourself. There are also hijinks involving pageants, drag queens, and Dolly Parton references.

I was NOT sold on the Bo storyline or his like of Will. That part seemed clunky.

Also: how old is Rosie???? Will mentions her getting "the Flashes" and that Lucy was older. But Lucy died at 36. And that means I am *literally* older than Rosie, and NOT pari-menopausal. THANK YOU. ( )
