Dubbed "Dumplin'" by her former beauty queen mom, Willowdean has always been at home in her own skin. Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body. With her all-American-beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked . . . until Will takes a job at Harpy's, the local fast-food joint. There she meets Private School Bo, a hot former jock. Will isn't surprised to find herself attracted to Bo. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back.Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Teen Blue Bonnet Pageant--along with several other unlikely candidates--to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any twiggy girl does. Along the way, she'll shock the hell out of Clover City--and maybe herself most of all.

I enjoyed reading/listening to this book. Although this book follows many of the Young Adult story tropes (there is a hetero normative love triangle-high school can be awful-falling out with a friend that is more popular), it goes against the grain by portraying a character, Willow Dean, who is a "fat girl" and not ashamed. At no point in the story does her size change, and although she is self conscious about it, she is not ashamed. She is a very well developed character, with human flaws, just like any other typical teenager. I highly recommend this for any teenager who is feeling insecure about themselves, for whatever reason, as it encourages young adults to be and do what makes them happy, screw what anyone else says or thinks!
