The Dumplin’ Trailer Is Finally Here

By Frolic

In 2015, the YA World was blessed with the likes of Dumplin', a novel by Julie Murphy. Snatched up by Netflix and scored by the illustrious Dolly Parton, the first trailer has arrived, and it's made us fall in love with the book all over again.

Willowdean, nicknamed "Dumplin’" by her mother, is an overweight teenager that has always felt that she was comfortable with her body and herself.

She doesn't care that her mother was a teen beauty queen or that people have poked fun at her for her weight. All of that changes when she meets Bo, a handsome boy her age that has expressed interest in dating her.

Suddenly our heroine is full of insecurities and can't bring herself to date him out of fear of what others would say. In order to prove to her self-worth, she has decided to enter and win the Miss Teen Blue Bonnet Pageant. However, as the date of the pageant approaches, she finds that it's not that easy to take part in a pageant.
