Descrição do produto

For fans of John Green and Rainbow Rowell comes this powerful novel with the most fearless heroine—self-proclaimed fat girl Willowdean Dickson—from Julie Murphy, the acclaimed author of Side Effects May Vary. With starry Texas nights, red candy suckers, Dolly Parton songs, and a wildly unforgettable heroine—Dumplin’ is guaranteed to steal your heart.

Dubbed “Dumplin’” by her former beauty queen mom, Willowdean has always been at home in her own skin. Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body. With her all-American-beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked . . .  until Will takes a job at Harpy’s, the local fast-food joint. There she meets Private School Bo, a hot former jock. Will isn’t surprised to find herself attracted to Bo. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back.  

Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Teen Blue Bonnet Pageant—along with several other unlikely candidates—to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any twiggy girl does. Along the way, she’ll shock the hell out of Clover City—and maybe herself most of all.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Fantastic 5-star read! 2 de maio de 2016
Por Amber T. - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
This. Book. I am almost speechless. Coming from the "fat kid" in her class who has had weight issues her whole life, this story hit me like a truck. I only wish there had been a Bo, who was pretty much my high school self's dream. I will never eat or see a red sucker without thinking about Bo! I may be in my 30's now, but the memories from that time in my life stick with me to this day. I also wish I had realized back then, like Willowdean eventually does, that you can be a heavier girl, but that doesn't mean you don't deserve love and that I don't have to give a rat's backside what anyone thinks, especially those who are judging me by what you look like. Also, don't settle, no matter who you are; wait for the butterflies! This book made me laugh so damn hard! Willowdean's inner dialogue had me laughing out loud because I could so relate and her description of her thighs incapacitated me for 20 minutes I was laughing/crying so hard! This book was so well-written. I could hear the Texas accents and picture all the characters perfectly. I haven't had a book affect me this much since Eleanor and Park and/or Fangirl. I think all teens, especially the girls, should read this because it's a good example of acceptance and friendship and family. I can't wait to see what this author does next!

3.0 de 5 estrelas She has a best friend who she’s been having trouble connecting with lately 27 de junho de 2016
Por Aimal Farooq - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
Julie Murphy’s Dumplin’ follows the story of a high school girl, and tells the tale of all the drama in her life. She has a best friend who she’s been having trouble connecting with lately, a mother who seems to care more about a beauty pageant than for her own daughter, and a crush who makes her all too aware of all the imperfect things about her body. You see, Willowdean is overweight, trying to get over her beloved auntie’s death, all while trying to maintain the confidence she has in herself despite the world trying constantly to undermine her. Before going into this book, you find yourself believing that this is the story of a fat girl and her fatness; however, the book is not about being fat. It’s a book about one woman’s life, and she just happens to be fat. There are obstacles along the way because of how she looks, but ultimately, this book is about friendship, loss, family, first-love, confidence, and embracing who you are.

The first thing that struck me as a reader was Murphy’s characterization; so often, when we’re reading books about underdogs, they are portrayed to be perfect human beings when it comes to personality. Not here. Willowdean is flawed in the way that she forms first judgments about other people- judgments that are often harsh. She can be cruel inside her own mind towards other people, but isn’t everyone, to some extent? Her development as a character becomes apparent as the book progresses- as she grows up, she learns to not only accept herself but others around her. Perhaps the one piece of critique this book gets the most is Willowdean’s judgments, but to me, that’s what makes her and the book so three-dimensional.

The novel is multi-faceted, in the way that it doesn’t focus on one thing over another, giving the reader a perfectly rounded picture of Willowdean’s life. We see her friendships, her relationship with her deceased aunt and her mother, her boy problems, her work. All of these things work seamlessly together to construct a solid storyline.

However, some of the secondary characters felt flat. There were so many of them that they can be hard to keep track of. Their personalities blend together after a little, and had the book been longer, perhaps the book would deliver more of a punch with all the different characters. The strange little love triangle was another thing I wasn’t big on- I didn’t think the book needed it, and if I consider the situation objectively, I don’t particularly think the situation was handled in the best way.

But all in all, Dumplin’ is a solid contemporary that deals with an important issue with sass and poise, simultaneously. The ending is spectacularly handled: ambiguous but leaves the reader content. It’s a three-dimensional, fast-paced reader, good for even those people who don’t usually reach for contemporaries.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Important book for young readers 1 de maio de 2016
Por Kindle Customer - Publicada na Amazon.com

I really liked this book. I can see a lot of myself in Willowdean. She has all the same insecurities I have/had. I love that the males in this book don't just look at her body and dismiss her. I also like that they don't go the whole 'I like you for your mind' business. They both tell her she is pretty, cute, hot. It's refreshing.

Like I said I see myself in Willowdean. Back in highschool and really still today, who am I kidding, I was the chubby girl. No matter how much I dieted or exercised I wouldn't drop under a certain weight and I still won't. That's just how my body is built and I've come to terms with it. The same as Willowdean. She accepts herself for who she is and doesn't put herself down, a whole lot, for it. She only becomes insecure when she is with someone else who she doesn't see herself worthy of, even though he doesn't care what others will think. He only wants Willowdean.

I think this is important for younger readers. I wish I had a book like this when I was younger so I could focus more on myself and not so much on what others thought.

This book also helped me to appreciate my own mother more. She never once has mentioned my weight or asked me to go on diets. She has never put me down, only encouraged me to be the best I can be. I can also see what the flip side is with Willowdean and her own mother. I do not want to do what she does to my own children.

I found myself a Bo, track and cross country legend. Complete with 12 pack and floppy hair. I am no where near in his league according to social standards but I ended up marrying him. So dreams can come true.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Positive, HAPPY Fat character 6 de março de 2016

[...]

Favorite Character

Aunt Lucy – Even though she’s no longer alive, she still serves as a great example and supporter for Willowdean.

Favorite Line

Three stood out to me because there are some great one line zingers:

“Plus, having sex doesn’t make you a woman. That is so freaking cliché. If you want to have sex, have sex, but don’t make it this huge thing that carries all this weight.”

“Marcus mumbles something about PMS and to my surprise, from the kitchen, Bo says, “Why can’t she just be having a s***ty day? You don’t need to make up some bulls*** reason why.” (THANK YOU.)

“There’s something about swimsuits that make you think you’ve got to earn the right to wear them. And that’s wrong. Really, the criteria is simple. Do you have a body? Put a swimsuit on it.”

Fun Author Fact

Inspiration for her first book came from a discussion/argument with teens in a library about where they would barricade themselves in said library if the zombie apocalypse came.

Is this worth a book hangover?

Yes – while we both had mixed feelings about, I think the character driven story makes it a fun, quick read. The positive representation of a fat and happy character – as well as her new friends – will be really meaningful for some readers.

This YA novel received a lot of well deserved buzz in 2015. This is the story of Willowdean, called Dumplin' by her mother. She is 16 years old and fat. She lives in a small Texas town where the most anticipated event is the annual beauty pageant. To make matters worse, her mother is a former winner and organizes the yearly pageant. Willowdean's aunt Lucy recently died. Lucy was her confidante and shared her love of all things Dolly Parton. Willow's best friend is pretty and petite and recently started having sex. Willow has a crush on a jock named Bo and is shocked when he starts making out with her. Shocked and horrified because someone touching her back fat makes her feel self conscious and scared. Willow decides to enter the beauty pageant and is joined by three other outsiders.

Willow has a great voice and is precocious in the way of most teens portrayed in novels. But it is not over the top or off-putting. What I love about this book is Willowdean's inner conflict. She knows that being fat shouldn't matter, but it does. She knows she is worthy, but doesn't feel that way. She knows that anyone can enter a beauty pageant, but they can't. She struggles with all this and more and comes out a winner. This book will make you think about friendships, family, acceptance, body image, and love. I would recommend this for both teens and adults.
