Readers’ Corner: If You Liked Dumplin’

Did you catch the Netflix premier of Dumplin’ on December 7th? This movie based off the delightful novel from author Julie Murphy spotlights a full figured teenager, a beauty pageant, and a love affair. 

The hilarious, quietly poignant, and provocative Willowdean finds herself, although largely overweight, someone who is worthwhile and deserving happiness. This heroine is a great role model for self-empowerment. The novel is full of positive messages and lessons about not letting your appearance define you or what you do. This week’s Readers’ Corner is full of fun Dumplin’ read-a-likes promoting diversity and inner beauty that will keep you going strong, or going home!

Check out our November 29th BookTube post to watch the official trailer!
