The irresistible companion to the #1 New York Times bestseller Dumplin', 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 newscaster--and to kiss the boy she'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, she'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.… (mere)

If I thought I loved Dumplin' and meeting Willowdean in book one, I didn't know what love was until I read Puddin'. Oh. My. God. How I love Millicient Michalchuk and didn't even know it. She is the fat girl hero I needed and didn't even know it. That's right I said fat. Millie gives a whole speech on how fat is just a word. It's not a feeling, it's a word. She is fat and she knows it and she's okay with her body and she knows other people call her fat. At 16. Oh if I had that kind of confidence at 16. Hell if I had that kind of confidence at 39...

Puddin' picks up soon after Dumplin' ended. Millie is still dealing with the aftermath of her decisions in book one and we are reintroduced to the ultimate mean girl Callie Reyes. Except Callie sort of grew on me over the course of the story. Reading her transformation and her struggles, she's 16. Do you remember 16? I try not to. Angry at everyone and everything, acting out and confused, she's having an identity crisis. And it comes out in not so good ways. She won't replace Millie in my heart as my hero/favorite YA book chacater (for the time being) but she wormed her way into my heart as the book progressed.

Puddin' is being advertised as the companion to Dumplin'. I think it's best read AFTER Dumplin' since that's where the characters are introduced and development begins. I finished this book this morning and I already want more. I had the pleasure of meeting Julie Murphy in March before I even read her books. And now I've read three and need to meet her again to thank her for these characters and stories. Don't miss this series my friends.

(Also Dumplin' is in production right now for theatre release. Dolly Parton does the music. Dolly Parton is a big deal in book one).

I didn’t like this one quite as much as Dumplin’. It took me a while to warm up to the characters. That said, once the story got underway, I was feeling it. It had that mix of feel good, wrong righting, everything will turn out all right warm fuzzies that makes some YA books so special. Add to your TBR for when you’re looking for something lighter. ( )

This book.
An amazing follow up to Dumplin', by the same author, Puddin' takes on the story of Willowdean's friend Millie as she finds her way through her senior year of high school post-Miss Teen Beauty Pagent runner-up. She's got a cute crush, dirt on a dance team member and...unforgiving parents who think their daughter's dream is to lose weight, rather than be seen as a person first. To Millie, 'fat' is just a descriptor, and can only be used to hurt if the speaker intends it to.
Callie Reyes used to intend it to, but after being kicked off the dance team and being grounded, her only outlet seems to be to talk and get to know Millie, working at Millie's Uncle's gym.
This is such a wonderful story about seeing the person behind your assumptions and first impressions, taking the time to know yourself and your strengths, and maybe speaking out at an official meeting or two when necessary. 10/10. Realistic high school interactions, an empathy-driven finale and a beautiful match to Dumplin'. ( )

The LGTBQ tag is for secondary characters and plots, but they're substantial enough that it's worth adding.

This book is pretty charming, although I did spent a lot of time pulling out my hair at Callie's bad choices. My one critique is that at times it feels a little too didactic. While it is true to life that people sometimes explain themselves in language that could come right from the NAAFA, HRC, or AVEN websites, it's not very good storytelling. But overall, this is an enjoyable story with engaging characters. ( )

I get that contemporary YA’s about mirroring life and showing how it’s flawed and messy and complicated, but this book’s shown me there’s a limit to how much complication I’ll tolerate. None of the issues in the book are unworthy of being addressed, of course, but there were enough of them I didn’t get a clear sense of a through-line or much of an overarching theme, and so the story didn’t hang together as well as it could have.

Issues include:

fatness, diet culture, fatphobia, fat shaming, and fat-related insults and microaggressions
being Latinx in a white family and mostly white community
being the daughter of divorced parents
pressure on teenagers to succeed, especially for teens who aren’t thin or white
friendship, renewing friendships, and how not to be a jerk to someone
self-image
inter-racial dating with ‘I’m not racist but” parents
vandalism, responsibility, and misplaced anger
anxiety disorders
sexist government funding of sports programs

And I’m probably forgetting things because it’s been a while. On the one hand, I appreciate that’s all in there because that’s life and wouldn’t wish any of that out, but on the other, like I said, it felt like a bit too much. A literal tad too issue-heavy, maybe, and the “Oh, so that’s how you live” revelation moment I was expecting was only sort of there.

I did appreciate that Murphy committed to both making the setting more diverse and to showing a different mindset on fatness than she did in Dumplin’. I especially liked that Millie sees Willowdean as the confident fat girl, whereas Will saw Millie that way. And I also liked seeing the secondary characters and settings from Dumplin’ pop back up.

I also liked the individual stories, for the most part, though Callie was a lot harder to like than Millie. Complicated, realistic person, yes, but also not the sort of person I’d ever hang out with. (Neither’s Millie, probably, but at least she’s friendly.) I cheered for them at all the right moments, but I’ve cheered more strongly for other characters in other books. The interplay between the stories, where Callie and Millie are getting to know and learn from each other, worked decently for me but my taste is for most obvious connections, I think. More plot, less character-focus.

In other words, I am almost definitely certainly not the right audience for this book and my review can be boiled down to *flails indecisively for thirty seconds*. I liked some stuff, didn’t like other stuff, and am kind of wishing I’d DNFed and moved on to something that wouldn’t have me doubting my interest in YA.

Warnings: Fatphobia and fat-shaming. “I’m not racist/sexist but” behaviour from adults.

6/10 ( )
