Dumplin'

So I admit, I definitely read this book because I heard the author lived in my area and was also a librarian. I normally avoid contemporary Young Adult stories because they aren’t my thing, but I knew I needed to give this a shot. The result was a charming, wholly Texan, story about friends, boyfr ...
