Quotable: Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy

It’s summer and super hot, so this line I highlighted in my copy of Julie Murphy’s Dumplin’ jumped out at me and I wanted to share:

There’s something about swimsuits that make you think you’ve got to earn the right to wear them. And that’s wrong. Really, the criteria is simple. Do you have a body? Put a swimsuit on it.

If you’re a fan of John Green or Rainbow Rowell or interested in a book with a fat protagonist (or realistic characters who aren’t perfect or small town issues or Texas!), this one’s for you. Also, Julie is in my book club and I promise any money you spend on her books is going to someone you’d be happy to support. She’s great and so are her books.
