OwlCrate Review – September 2015
For fans of John Green and Rainbow Rowell comes this powerful novel with the most fearless heroine—self-proclaimed fat girl Willowdean Dickson—from Julie Murphy, the acclaimed author of Side Effects May Vary. With starry Texas nights, red candy suckers, Dolly Parton songs, and a wildly unforgettable heroine—Dumplin’ is guaranteed to steal your heart.
Dubbed “Dumplin’” by her former beauty queen mom, Willowdean 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 Teen Blue Bonnet Pageant—along with several other unlikely candidates—to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any twiggy girl does. Along the way, she’ll shock the hell out of Clover City—and maybe herself most of all.
We also received a Dumplin’ sticker and a letter from the author Julie Murphy which was a very nice addition. The book Dumplin has a very different kind of Leading Lady than I was expecting but I think it will be a good read.
Leading Lady Daenerys Targaryen (Mother of the Dragons) from Game of Thrones is represented in this cute Funko Pop Keychain. What a cute addition to the box and definitely fits with the Leading Ladies theme. This is one of my favourite characters from Game of Thrones so I’m pretty happy to receive it.
The Hunger Games Leading Lady Katniss Everdeen was the inspiration for this arrow necklace from crystal compass. This necklace came with a coupon for 50%the crystal compass etsy shop. It’s a nice big arrow and is a great layering piece.
Leading Lady Hermione Granger is represented in this photo print from Megan Lara. It’s printed on high quality Kodak photo papers, and will last up to 200 years without fading.
Leading Lady ‘Tris’ from the Divergent series is represented in this book tote. This Tote is a good size and I’ll definitely be using this for the many library trips I make each month.
