Return to the beloved world of Julie Murphys #1 New York Times bestselling Dumplinnow a popular Netflix feature film starring Jennifer Anistonin this fabulously joyful, final companion novel about drag, prom, and embracing your inner Queen. Waylon Russell Brewer is a fat, openly gay boy stuck in the small West Texas town of Clover City. His plan is to bide his time until he can graduate, move to Austin with his twin sister, Clementine, and finally go Full Waylon so that he can live his Julie-the-hills-are-alive-with-the-sound-of-music-Andrews truth. So when Clementine deviates from their master plan right after Waylon gets dumped, he throws caution to the wind and creates an audition tape for his favorite TV drag show, Fiercest of Them All. What he doesnt count on is the tape getting accidentally shared with the entire school. . . . As a result, Waylon is nominated for prom queen as a joke. Clems girlfriend, Hannah Perez, also receives a joke nomination for prom king. Waylon and Hannah decide theres only one thing to do: runand leave high school with a bang. A very glittery bang. Along the way, Waylon discovers that there is a lot more to running for prom court than campaign posters and plastic crowns, especially when he has to spend so much time with the very cute and infuriating prom king nominee Tucker Watson. Waylon will need to learn that the best plan for tomorrow is living for today . . . especially with the help of some fellow queens. . . .

This book is every bit as endearing and heartwarming as the first two books in this series. You don‘t need to have read the prequels in order to enjoy this one, but I did appreciate that the finale offers a peek at the previous two couples and how they‘re doing now.

I highly recommend listening to the audiobook version, it is narrated by Chad Burris and he makes it so engaging and fun. I didn't read Dumplin but watched the Netflix movie and both stories translate well beyond the YA crowd. So many quotable parts!

Julie Murphy can do no wrong. I LOVE this entry in the Dumplin' verse. Waylon has such a strong voice, and his journey to being himself and doing drag is so fun yet so realistic. Miss Patch forever! #yalit

An overweight gay boy in a small town films a private video where he experiments with drag. After the video gets leaked & he's nominated to his high school's prom court - for queen - he decides to throw caution to the wind & go for the crown. Third in the Dumplin' series. I swear, these books are so feel-good, funny, & addictive it's unbelievable! Filled with teen angst & coupled with hope, this is the high school experience you wish you'd had!

I feel like I spent so much of 2021 in and out of this audiobook because I was having trouble focusing on audio so often—let alone fiction in audio. But I finished it up in 2022 and am hoping to continue working through my board of titles.

Hey ya‘ll it‘s pumpkin, Waylon is watching his favourite drag show fiercest of them all, but when he finds out that his favourite queen gets disqualified he try‘s drag out for him self. Waylon might just be the next seasons queen.

Some books can only be described as a delightful read. I loved seeing life through Waylons eyes. This book had me smiling and feeling all warm and fuzzy. I love how we also get to catch up with Puddin. Julie writes such endearing characters you cannot help but want to be their friends. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ #pumpkin #juliemurphy #tea_sipping_bookworm #litsy #amazonkindle #thestorygraph #bookqueen #bookstagram #goodreads

So good to be back in Clover City. While primary characters from earlier in this series are present subtle sub characters in Pumpkin, their willingness to stand up for each other is phenomenal. I loved the tasks associated with nominees, and wonder if most school require them to show appreciation towards their school, staff & fellow students at like this. Just reinforces that nominations aren't so freely given, but earned.

Fat, gay Texas teen Waylon makes a drag video inspired by a favorite tv show which gets leaked to the whole school and suddenly he finds himself in the running from prom queen. Not only is this a lot of fun, with great queer characters, but it reinforces the message that our insecurities shouldn‘t define us and in fact are not necessarily how we are seen by others.
