Dog Girl 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? DOG GIRL is the story of a teen girl who wants to save the world, and ends up saving herself in the process.
