Publisher's Summary

The irresistible companion to the number one New York Times best seller Dumplin’, soon to be a major motion picture starring Danielle Macdonald and Jennifer Aniston!

Millie Michalchuk has gone to fat camp every year since she was a little girl. Not this year. This year she has new plans to chase her secret dream of being a newscaster - and to kiss the boy she’s crushing on.

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 surprise everyone (especially themselves) by realizing that they might have more in common than they ever imagined.

A story about unexpected friendship, romance, and Texas-size girl power, this is another winner from Julie Murphy.

If you loved Dumplin', you'll love Puddin'!

I read Dumplin' and I love it so much. The audiobook was also great. I had really high expectations for Puddin' and Julie Murphy did not disappoint! Puddin' is amazing! I love the way that Julie writes, and her books actually make me laugh out loud. She makes the characters so relatable and loveable! I highly recommend this book! It's a really great read/listen!

Fantastic book!

I loved this book. Millie is a literal ray of sunshine even when she is having a bad day and has to struggle for positivity. Callie is tough, but she starts to soften as her world shifts. Loved these two and this book.

Puddin.

It starts really slow but comes together in the end, the voice of Millie in the very beginning of the chapters is kind of annoying. But teaches you to love the skin your in.

Great second chapter in the Dumplin’verse!

I was a little hesitant about this book at first because of how terrible Callie was in Dumplin’, but I ended up loving it! This turned into a great story about how people can hide behind personas they’ve made for themselves, but that doesn’t make them who they are. As a self proclaimed fat girl, it’s also so wonderful to see a story about a fat girl written by a real fat girl. Julie Murphy captures that so well and highlights that all of our stories are full, complex, deep, and complex. Some great cameos from Dumplin’ characters (including my favorite, Mitch) as well as new characters.

More for teens than adults

The story was good & well written, but definitely more for teens than adults. A lot of "coming of age" plots & twists.

Fabulous Book 2 in series

Truly loved both Dumplin’ and Puddin’. Julie Murphy is a voice of self-esteem, girl power and the bond of youth and girlfriends. She tells a wonderful story with compelling, wonderful characters.

Very cute story

I enjoyed this book. It is an easy storyline. However, the two narrators’ voices seemed to fit more to the opposite character. The narrator for Millie had a bit of an attitude to her voice which should have been for Callie. And the narrator for Callie had a much sweeter voice which should have been for Millie. It confused me numerous times.

Cute story, annoying narrator

The story is overall cute and feel-good. A nice companion to Dumplin’ (although not as good, in my opinion). The thing that ruined it for me was the person narrating Millie’s part of the story. She has such an annoying way of speaking. She had the same weird speech pattern/lilt for EVERY sentence. It was distracting and lessened the experience.

Preferred this to Dumplin

I preferred this to Dumplin. I thought the story was much better. Also, the friendship between Callie, Millie and the rest of Nillie’s friend group is much stronger and better developed than in the first book.
