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:

Three of my favorite YA authors make me love them more through their tweets (for way more than just their books — which are awesome): Who do I have to see about taking the words "wifey" and "hubby," locking them in a box, and shooting them off into space? — Lauren Morrill (@LaurenEMorrill) August 7, 2015…
