Last week it was announced that Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy is headed to the big screen. In the book, sixteen-year-old Willowdean wants to prove to everyone in her small Texas town that she is more than just a fat girl, so, while grappling with her feelings for a co-worker who is clearly attracted to her, Will and some other misfits prepare to compete in the beauty pageant her mother runs. Jennifer Aniston just signed on to play Dumplin’s mother in the movie. Check out Dumplin’ today at the library!
