Summary from Goodreads: It is a companion novel to Dumplin', which follows supporting characters from the first book in the months after Willowdean's star turn in the Clover City pageant. 

Millie Michalchuk has gone to fat camp every year since she was a girl. Not this year. This year she has new plans to chase her secret dream—and to kiss her crush. 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 will surprise everyone (especially themselves) by realizing they might have more in common than they ever imagined.
 

Review: One of the things I love about Julie Murphy's books are the humor and the way we all can relate to something inside the pages. I love the unique writing as Murphy steps outside of the normal skinny, good looking characters, to dig deep into what the world is really like with average, run of the mill, sarcastic teenagers. Its a nice change. I have to say, I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first, but it still kept my attention throughout the whole story. Loved it!

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
