Five Reasons You Should Pre-Order Julie Murphy’s PUDDIN.

If the post is a listicle, you know I mean serious business. And I do!

Check it out. PUDDIN’, the companion novel to Julie Murphy’s DUMPLIN’ is coming May 8th!

 

Here are just a few reasons you should pre-order a copy of PUDDIN before May 8th.

  1. You’re going to love this book! 
    PUDDIN is beautiful, funny, ridiculous, moving, and powerful.

    Check out what Becky Abertalli, author of Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, had to say: “Julie Murphy has created the platonic love story of a lifetime. I am wildly in love with Puddin’.”

  2. You’ll love PUDDIN, even if you haven’t read DUMPLIN’
    PUDDIN isn’t a sequel– it follows the story of two characters introduced in DUMPLIN, Millie and Callie, in their own story of unexpected friendship, romance, and Taxas-sized girl power.

    And if you haven’t read DUMPLIN, you should! (DUMPLIN’s also going to be a movie this year with Jennifer Anniston and Danielle MacDonald, and an original soundtrack by Dolly Parton, btw).
