I really did not know what to expect from this book.  I selected it as a YA romance when planning my year.  This is definitely not my normal go-to genre.  I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the book and how much deeper it was than it appears on the surface.  I will definitely plan to read the rest of the series next year as well as Julie Murphy's debut book,    

Dumplin'Dumplin' by Julie Murphy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

a thought provoking story for young and old alike

The representation of Dumplin is spot on. As someone who is overweight many of her thoughts and inner critic is very easy to relate to. I also like that the other friends and her force her to look at the assumptions she makes about others as well. She is an honest character who goes through struggles and changes in this story. I look forward to reading more by this author
