no powergirl anthems in this book

Dumplin' - Julie Murphy

Hmm, this was ok.  Teens making mistakes but also asserting themselves.   Loved the Dolly Parton theme and the group of so-called misfits.  I am mixed on the protagonist, Willowdean.  She became the apex of a love triangle that I think could and should have been avoided.   I kind of loved and hated that she was sort of snarky.  Nice story, some will enjoy.  Won't become any sort of girl power anthem.
