I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get to this series! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Amazing characters, believable angst and pages you just can’t stop turning. I loved Millie to death, and adore Julie Murphy for her skill in crafting characters who are diverse in so many ways and have quirky personalities all their own.
Callie, I’ll be honest, took a while to grow on me, and I thought the author did a fantastic job of writing the entitled, spoiled facets of her character authentically. The way she couldn’t see past me, me, me after

I LOVED this book. [b:Dumplin'|18304322|Dumplin' (Dumplin' #1)|Julie Murphy|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1424189465s/18304322.jpg|25795642] was terrific. This was better. Millie is the teenager that I wish I had been.
Totally unrealistic but delightfully sweet. I wish I had friends like these girls when I was a teen.
Puddin' is a novel by Julie Murphy. It's a companion to Dumplin'.
Millie Michalchuk has spent every summer at fat camp, not that it had much effect on her being fat. And really, she is quite alright with being fat, but her mom isn't, and so the threat of fat camp hangs over her head yet again. But this year, Millie has other plans. She just doesn't know yet how to tell her mom about it. That entire thing takes a backseat though when the gym that Millie works at and that belongs to her uncle is vandalized. Millie realizes that one of the perpetrators is Callie Reyes. Popular, beautiful and mean, and now, apparently a criminal, Callie is everything that Millie is not. When Millie's uncle decides that Callie can work off the damages at the gym, neither Millie nor Callie are thrilled to be working with the other. But Millie is determined to make a friend out of Callie yet, despite everything. And somehow, things start moving.
Puddin' is a super cute and sweet read that I enjoyed a lot, even though I was a little disappointed because I was hoping for this turn into a romance between Millie and Callie. It does not. But it does tell a very nice story about platonic friendship and that is great, too.

The irresistible companion to the #1 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 more 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 more in common than they ever imagined. A story about unexpected friendship, romance, and Texas-size girl power, this is another winner from Julie Murphy.
