Puddin 2 (Dumplin') I pre ordered Puddin because I LOVED Dumplin I am so glad I did I teach high school ELA, and my co teacher and I are building a class library so our students have CHOICE READING every day You better believe multiple copies of Murphy s books are set to be available This book moved me in ways the first didn t, and that surprised me There is realism in this story that I know from experience Some of my favorite lines include My magic truth the thing that has changed everything for me is this the body I have shouldn t change how deserving I am of my dreams p.57 this one gave me all the feels But I kinda wonder what it feels like to love something so much that you re even happy to fail at it p 329 this one hit me right in my heart He smells like deodorant and sour cream chips And somehow, I m really into it Boys are straight up sorcery p.363 made me laugh I know I have students that will relate to the characters in this book, and I can hardly wait to share my love of PUDDIN with my class The Irresistible Companion To The 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 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 In Common Than They Ever Imagined A Story About Unexpected Friendship, Romance, And Texas Size Girl Power, This Is Another Winner From Julie Murphy I read and loved Dumplin, so I was expecting some of the same exhilarating fat girl wins big time stuff from Puddin , but while it had some great moments, the protagonist was willfully and ridiculously naive and innocent, while the antagonist, the popular girl fulfilled every cliche of the mean girl you can think of Also, Millie s solution to being bullied and harassed for her size was cute, but would have been completely ineffective 40 years ago when I was a teenager, and I can t imagine that bullies and jocks and cruel teachers have gotten any kinder since the 70s I would bet trying to being kind and sweet to them would only illicit a violent verbal and physical response, leaving the victim open to pain and suffering So, while I laud the book for being a fun and interesting read, with clean prose and an easy plot, I can t really say that I d wholeheartedly recommend it to those outcasts and misfits who are treated to bullying every day of their school career Especially the fat girls, who are looking for acceptance, help, answers or ideas to make their lives easier, to inspire them to keep going until things get better. This is the sequal to Dumplin, supposedly At the beginning of the book, you re saying huh because the characters that were minor in Dumplin are now the main characters and vice versa However, as you read on, you get hooked and it is a great read Now that Dumplin the movie has come out and it features the minor characters than the book did in my opinion it all fits in together My recommendation is read Dumplin the book, see Dumplin the movie, then read Puddin the book in that order Hopefully, there will be a Puddin movie too for us to see Oh, don t forget to buy Dolly s Dumplin Soundtrack through too it s great also It is mainly for teenagers but I m 75 and think they are all great as there are lessons, fun and tears for all of us Buy it now 4 5 I enjoyed this book I really like Millie s personality she was different from many from many heroines in that she is always positive and sweet and has such heart Callie was very much a misunderstood character and I didn t really like at her first, but she grew on me I just wanted her to accept kindness that was coming her way I liked how really both Millie and Callie both became their own selves I also liked the focus on female friendships and how important they are it s to see in YA This book was hard to start off, but then I was invested to see what was going to happen The love interests, Mitch and Malik, were so swoony and I loved them so much It also cool to see the characters from the companion novel in this book, specifically Willowdean and Bo, ugh so cute Overall, I thought it was a enjoyable book about acceptance of others and female friendships.
