I'm even further removed from the target audience for this one than I am from Dumplin', so keep that in mind. I was darn frustrated through most of the book. It all came together in the end—is that good enough? I dunno.

I really enjoyed Julie Murphy‘s YA books.. but this one was “middle grade” and it really didn‘t do it for me. It‘s definitely older middle grade, I wouldn‘t want my third grader reading it. The MC does some really crappy things to her friends and spends the second half of the book redeeming herself but I didn‘t get over it, lol. . Plus, it uses the trope of taking over a newspaper advice column, which I‘m all done with.

I somehow did not realize until I started reading that this was the same Julie Murphy that wrote Dumplin‘ and Puddin‘. I loved both of those books so it is no surprise that I enjoyed this one as well. While it is a middle grade book, I didn‘t feel like I was reading a book geared for younger readers.

Julie Murphy's books are so heart-warming but also don't shy away from complexities and grey areas. This is a great debut into the middle grade market about a 13-year-old who has a lot of stuff going on in her life: parents' divorce, parent coming out, an ex-BFF, and an eccentric elderly neighbour who asks Sweet Pea to look after her mail for her advice column while she's gone. Sweet Pea gets herself into a wee bit of trouble. I loved this!

I jumped at the chance to order this after reading Dumplin! I loved this story because it includes topics young adults should be exposed to. Sweet Pea is dealing with her parents divorce after her father comes out as gay. When she is tasked with helping her neighbor (the advices columnist), she discovers some facts about her ex-best friend. Sweet Pea also struggles with body issues, but it isn‘t the forefront of the novel, which I liked. A pick!

Middle Grade Novel | Author of Dumplin', Puddin', Tamona in Blue | Publishes today, October 1, 2019

"Let's recap. My parents are divorced. My dad is gay, and my mim has a new boyfriend. She's not calling him her boyfriend yet, but he's totally her boyfriend. I'm pretending to be the town advice columnist while the regular lady is MIA. My best friend is ticked off at me, and I've somehow mangaged to become friends with my once-sworn enemy."

It's hard to believe that it is the last Friday in September already. That must mean it's time for #CoverLove. This month we look at MG titles that are out soon. And maybe a few PBs as well.

First up is the first MG book from Dumplin' author Julie Murphy. Not realy a fan of the cover, but it does seem like a younger version of her adult covers.

Out Oct 1

#currentlyreading #preview #octrso2019 #middlefiction Julie Murphy of ‘Dumplin‘‘ fame has moved into the ‘tween spaces (it‘s what all the kids are doin), and I have heard it‘s heart-warming and fun. Yay for a fun book.

4⭐️ Aawww I love this middle grade novel. Sweet Pea is a cool kid. She‘s smart, confident, and comfortable in her plus size. She has other more important issues than body issues! Self love and acceptance is key; otherwise who‘s gonna love you? 🥰

Second book completed for #24in48 #24in48readathon I‘m nowhere near 24 hr but I‘ve been enjoying this readathon weekend

My parents also divorced when I was young when my dad came out as gay. Similar to Sweet Pea‘s parents, they remained close allies and friends instead of hating each other—I‘ve never seen my family represented in a book before and I wish this had existed when I was in middle school ❤️

When one of your favorite YA authors cites something local to you, you become best friends right? 🤗

Samplergal I would!!! I actually wanted to do that a few years ago, but they were renovating. Bummer. 8mo
GirlMeetsBook @Samplergal it‘s a hard pass for me!! Though I would like to go to the house for an official tour some time, I think. 8mo
