The Dumplin' Series
Self-proclaimed fat girl Willowdean Dickson (dubbed "Dumplin'" by her former beauty queen mom) has always been at home in her own skin. With her all-American beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked. Then she takes a job at a fast-food joint and meets Private School Bo. Will isn't surprised that she's attracted to a hot former jock. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back. Instead of finding new self-assurance in their relationship, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant, to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any girl does.
