Julie Murphy

Murphy’s companion to her popular Dumplin’ (2015) focuses on two supporting characters from Clover City High School. Millie Michalchuk is determined to pursue her dream of becoming a TV news anchor and plans to spend the summer at journalism camp, not the fat camp where, over the years, she lost more self-esteem than weight. Callie Reyes is the pretty girl who dates a football player and is on course to become the captain of the Shamrock dance team. When it comes to other girls, she’s better at having useful frenemies than actual friends. Although their paths rarely cross, circumstances bring Millie and Callie together and to their surprise, the girls realize they have more in common than they ever imagined!
