Millie has her share of burdens to carry – her weight, her parents’ fears, her own fears, obnoxious boys who think it’s funny to torment the fat girl. But she has a secret spine of steel which she hides under her sweet smile and good manners. The world is not going to bring this girl down.
It’s bizarre, really, that Julie Murphy managed to take such a unicorn and stardust gal and match her up perfectly with a fallen mean girl like Callie, but it works. There are all kinds of disasters and misunderstandings and no shortage of drama, but this one’s a treat. There might not be quite as much Dolly Parton as I’d like. (See here.)
But there’s oh so much to love.
