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.

About the Author:
Gabi Justice is the author of Dog Girl, her teen and young adult contemporary romance
debut set to publish in the fall of 2020. She is the mom to three dogs and one stray cat
named Luna Buna. She lives in Florida with her husband and children. You’d be hard-
pressed to find a tennis court in the state that she hasn’t visited, having three
competitive junior players in the family. She spent most of her adult life writing editorial copy for local magazines after graduating from the University of South Florida. Florida provides the settings for all her coming-of-age stories that highlight bullying, misjudgment, acceptance, and teen anxiety. Her main characters are goal-oriented teenage girls with a drive that can be fierce and dangerous.
