#BookReview: Dog Girl by Gabi Justice

Synopsis: Doggirl is Fangirl meets Pit Bulls and Parolees.

Saving the dogs who end up at Delray Dog Rescue is Kendall's life. It’s the perfect job for a girl with severe social anxiety.

Delray Dog Rescue doesn’t just rescue dogs, it’s a second chance for felons, like her dad. Losing the rescue means losing Kendall's home, her sanctuary, the dogs she loves, her identity and her dad, all over again.

But money's tight, and soon, Kendall must decide between keeping a roof over her head and saving the rescue.

When a video of Kendall’s harrowing rescue of a pit bull from the path of an oncoming train goes viral. Suddenly, everyone wants a piece of Kendall, making her anxiety worse. But this is an opportunity to put the rescue in the spotlight and secure the donations needed to save it.

Can she overcome the social paralysis that's plagued her all her life? Can she ignore negative comments on social media about her looks and smell? Can she accept help from a boy who really sees her, even though she can’t understand what he could possibly see in her?

DOGGIRL is the story of a teen girl who wants to save the world, and ends up saving herself in the process.


Rating: 4 Stars
My Review:  This author did a really great job doing this story about a girl with anxiety who is trying to save dogs.  I loved every page and had all the feels.  The characters felt so relatable.  

From the Author

I wrote the first half of the manuscript at a tennis tournament in Puerto Rico after watching Pit Bulls and Parolees on the back of a headrest on a plane from Fort Lauderdale to San Juan. The dog rescue show sparked an idea for a perfect young adult contemporary romance book setting. Pieces of that tournament, including a wolf at a sanctuary, sifted into what is now Dog Girl. If I had to sum up Dog Girl in two words, they'd be--second chances.
