Beschreibung

Now a Netflix feature film, starring Jennifer Aniston, Danielle Macdonald, and Dove Cameron, as well as a soundtrack from Dolly Parton!

The #1 New York Times bestseller and feel-good YA of the year—about Willowdean Dixon, the fearless, funny, and totally unforgettable heroine who takes on her small town's beauty pageant.

Self-proclaimed fat girl Willowdean Dickson (dubbed "Dumplin'” by her former beauty queen mom) has always been at home in her own skin. Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body.

With her all-American beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked . . . until Will takes a job at Harpy's, the local fast-food joint. There she meets Private School Bo, a hot former jock. Will isn't surprised to find herself attracted to Bo. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back. Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant—along with several other unlikely candidates—to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any girl does.

Along the way, she'll shock the hell out of Clover City—and maybe herself most of all.

Willowdean Dickson is a normal teenager with normal problems. Except that Will doesn't look average. She's overweighted which doesn't bother her much actually. She's got her best friend Ellen to talk to until one day she can not. She's got a crush on her cute colleague Bo who gives her her first kiss. Soon they start making out.... Willowdean Dickson is a normal teenager with normal problems. Except that Will doesn't look average. She's overweighted which doesn't bother her much actually. She's got her best friend Ellen to talk to until one day she can not. She's got a crush on her cute colleague Bo who gives her her first kiss. Soon they start making out. Ellen's got a boyfriend and tells Willowdean about them thinking about their first sex. Will feels left behind, because Ellen is so much ahead of her when it comes to stuff teens experience like their first kiss and their first time. But then she gets this first kiss and Willowdean who always felt good in her skin, starts feeling out of place when it comes to these experiences. She can't imagine Bo (who she secretly makes out with) would enjoy her huge body which others are so repelled of and doubts she could handle being the pity part in a relationship in the opinion of others. What's worse: She can't talk with Ellen. A wedge between the girls which Will feels formed a few months ago manifests itself in a big crack in their friendship: When Willowdean applies to a beauty pageant in commemoration of her deceased aunt who died of a heart attack due to her overweight she feels betrayed by Ellen who also applies for the pageant. Their friendship ends in a big fight and Will feels more lonely than ever until her application inspires some girls from her school to follow Willowdean to also apply. Will becomes some kind of a guide for these girls and through them she finds a way back to herself, leaving all the doubts behind. I guess everyone who is or was in the position of having more than a couple of pounds above the perfect BMI gets what Willowdean talkes about like not knowing if your butt fits in an average chair with armrests or being the center of attention at a food buffet or being ashamed of eating in public. Will is a very inspirational character who holds the opinion that you should not feel bad, because others are repelled in your deviation of normality. I enjoyed this story so much and hope that many girls (for the book is mostly written for young girls) find comfort and inspiration to accept and love themselves no matter if they don't fit in what's called 'average'. Absolutely great book!
