Dumplin’

Dumplin’ Book Cover

Willowdean Dickson (nicknamed Dumplin' by her beauty queen Mom) is a big girl and she is almost totally comfortable with her size. The book takes her through romantic encounters that test her confidence, but the big challenge is entering the "Miss Teen Blue Bonnet" beauty pageant and parading across the stage in a bathing suit. Willowdean is a hero and this is an excellent book for everyone - not just teens. It is filled with humor and a sprinkling of teen angst.
