Dumplin’ Will Steal Your Heart
YA author Julie Murphy’s writing shows a deep understanding of creating characters and a stories that readers will care deeply about.
Anyone who picks up this book, but most importantly teen readers, will relate to the main character Willowdean’s insecurities and learn how to get past their own.
This charming novel has a big dose of West Texas culture, a deep appreciation of the master storyteller Dolly Parton, and a wildly unforgettable heroine — Dumplin’ is a stunning debut novel.
