Description of this Book

Willdowdean is fat. But she's OK with that. Willowdean reckons the best thing to do with a bikini is to wear it. Her mother organises the annual town beauty pageant, and fondly calls her daughter Dumplin'.

And when is she going to get another kiss like THAT one, again?

Author's Bio

Julie Murphy has this to say about herself... I love pocket change, but I like to keep it in a jar, and not in my pocket. When I was little, I was on a bowling league. Moxie is my favorite word. If I won the lottery, the first thing I would buy would be a photo booth. I like outerspace. I believe in karma. I'm terrified of cicadas. I love school. I don't pick up my house phone. I like getting mail. I'm the funniest person you know. 2+2=5. I live in Texas with my husband who loves me, my dog who adores me, and my cat who tolerates me. Baseball aficionado. Professional potty mouth obsessed with movie trailers. And movies, too. And books. DUH. Let's be friends. Her first book Side Affects May Vary was published in 2014.
