Novel Review: Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy

Dumplin' (Dumplin', #1)Dumplin’

by Julie Murphy

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

It was cute. Somehow relate-able — but also, completely predictable. It doesn’t have that impact that I expected from a book like this (and especially after hearing friends rave about it). It just kind of fizzled out at the end. And, I found it strange that everyone in this book has the same “stress” response of chewing on their thumb. Anyone else notice this?
