  • I don t think I ve ever read a YA novel in which I could relate to the heroine so well Having grown up being bullied, similar to what this young girl faces, the parallels surprised me Like myself, the girl turns to dogs I don t get a lot of things people do Which is why I prefer living as part of a dog pack rather than a human one Every time I think I might have figured people out, it turns out to be a disaster Riley is fourteen and knows enough to keep to herself But wanting to put dog trainer [...]


  • I ve been wanting to reread Robin Brande s Doggirl for years now I first read it in June 2011 and it was LOVE Riley Case is the heroine of this coming of age middle grade novel Riley and her parents have recently moved to the area The official reason for the move is for her mom to take a teaching job at a college The unofficial reason for the move, well, Riley was being bullied by some of her classmates, and her life had become misery Riley knows exactly what she wants out of life She wants to b [...]


  • I actually need to start this review with three apologies 1 To my family at large, because I was mostly incommunicado today while I devoured this entire book from start to finish Thank you for not disturbing 2 To my aunt, who didn t get to use my Kindle to read her newspaper today, because I was busy using it to devour this entire book from start to finish Thank you for not whining, and next year bring your own Kindle 3 To author goddess Robin Brande, who gave me this ebook for free a long, long [...]

  • My friends know that I was drawn to this book because of the dog on the cover The blurb drew me in so I grabbed this book It s awesome Love all the dogs, love this character, Riley and I can t say enough about the message that resonates in this story I would highly recommend this to adults and young adults We ve heard so much about young people who are teased and harrassed I don t like the term bullied but this story gives you the opportunity to see this from the side of the teen and the family [...]


  • Okay, so freshmen year, my best friend Kimberly was raving about this awesome ebook that she read, right It sounded perfect for me Introverted girl theatre dogs Awesome She was spot on I really did like this book It was one of the first ebooks that I ve read, and it seemed to be like such a quick read compared to other books Now, I ve heard about people that don t read that use kindles and don t realize that they have blazed through 400 pages, and I think that the same happened to me Really awes [...]


  • Robin Brande is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors I am going through her collection and feel that she is a very talented writer that can deal with heavy issues with surprising ease In her book Evolution, Me, and Other Freaks of Nature she dealt with being a Christian and believing in evolution and now in Doggirl she handles a character who does not know how to fit in but it is so much than that Her books strive to entertain and succeed but there is an underlying smartness and I feel a [...]


  • Doggirl is a well written coming of age story Riley Case is a freshman in a new town at a new high school That s enough to make anyone a bit self concious But Riley is coming from a bad situation at her old school Riley was the odd girl out because of her love and understanding for animals and her parent s hand made values in a buy stuff world Riley has always stood a bit back from the crowd, trying not to get involved, and her one attempt last year resulted in major bullying from the students [...]


  • Riley Case, aka Doggirl, has always been better at communicating with dogs than people, and she sees no reason to change that All she wants to do is get through high school and go to college so she can become a professional animal trainer So when the notice shows up about the school s theater department needing a dog trainer with a trained dog, Riley thinks it s the perfect way to get some experience under her belt without risking too much of herself Before long she feels like one of the theater [...]


  • I really loved this book Sure, this was mainly due to the supporting cast and the dogs, seeing as I didn t really connect with the main character I m sorry, but there comes a time when insecurities just sound whiny to me I felt like she needed to get over herself, man up, and make friends But I did feel like the supporting cast was very well developed They were all CHARACTERS, you know Like, real people The dogs sounded adorable and it really made me want a puppy.This was a very interesting read [...]


  • High school freshman Riley Case is a girl who relates to animals much easily than she does to people She has a special affinity for animals and spends as much of her time training her three dogs to do new tricks as she can But with people she just can t seem to fit in She s afraid of rejection, especially after a torturously bad experience at her previous school, and prefers to blend into the background and keep her distance Things slowly start changing when Riley accepts an opportunity to help [...]


  • I really loved this story.I was alot like Riley in some wayscially awkward, shy, defenses up, afraid of saying the wrong thing.I loved watching the gradual changes in Riley.d I really enjoyed the dogs I never really had pets growing up, and my husband is not a big fan of dogs I had fun with this book I still REALLY want a dog, even so now that I ve read Doggirl.I admired her closeness with her parents too, and the sacrifices they made for their daughter.I think one paragraph, a conversation bet [...]


  • My friends know that I was drawn to this book because of the dog on the cover The blurb drew me in so I grabbed this book It s awesome Love all the dogs, love this character, Riley and I can t say enough about the message that resonates in this story I would highly recommend this to adults and young adults.We ve heard so much about young people who are teased and harrassed I don t like the term bullied but this story gives you the opportunity to see this from the side of the teen and the family [...]


  • I read Doggirl because I ve read other books by Robin Brande, and loved them all My love of dogs was just a bonus, but a huge bonus Without the slightest doubt, I know that if you love dogs, too, you re going to adore this book.Doggirl is certainly a winner among dog books, but it s much, much than that It s also a touching story of a young girl growing up and coming to terms with feeling like an unappreciated stranger among her contemporaries I m sure there are thousands of teenagers out there [...]


  • Another great novel by Robin Brande I was so excited to hear that this was coming out and thanks so much, Robin, for providing me with a copy I loved Doggirl as much as I loved Evolution, Me, and Other Freaks of Nature and Fat Cat Robin s ability to create characters that are real, and likable, and relatable is what makes her books as wonderful as they are I completely connected with Riley and her insecurities, and her dogs, Fig, Jack, and Heidi, were just as lovable as the human characters in D [...]


  • I needed something easy to read Something kind of brainless, and this seemed at first to fit the bill precisely However, the book is a little complicated than it appeared It didn t stop me from liking it, though If I could give half stars, I d have given it 3.5, but I rounded up.Riley Doggirl gets involved with the drama club in her high school There are a lot of undeveloped characters surrounding this plot, and that s really ok They don t need to be completely developed, but it got confusing t [...]


  • Robin Brande writes such good stories This one is about a shy girl who s been wounded by her experiences with bullying school mates She decides to retire from society and concentrate on her true love training her dogs Somehow she decides to volunteer one of them to act in the high school s drama competition, and while the dogs steal the show she starts to slowly make friends again Or so we hope she insists on pulling away whenever people get too close But as the dogs have their tricks and she ha [...]


  • Told from the point of view of Riley, a freshman who is good with animals but not with people After being tormented by friends in middle school, Riley decided that the only friends she needed were her parents and her 3 dogs She keeps a low, lonely profile in high school until she volunteers her amazing trained dogs for a drama production Will she be able to let people get to know her, or is the risk too great Likable characters, witty and intelligent dialogue, a little romance, and lovable dogs [...]


  • Cute read Cute story I d be happy to see a sequel or for this to turn into a miniseries, a trilogy at least I think there is a lot that could be developed, both on Riley s character and how she learns to get out of her shell, as a dog lover have 4 it is an amazing read how a high schooler divides her time with the dogs The small romance part wasn t so much a mystery as it was flaming obvious right from the beginning, and with the way it ended I d be surprised if there isn t some sort of after s [...]


  • This book was so me in high school, I pretty much just spent my days with my dogs because I was much better socializing with them then I was people so Riley was totally relatable for me I thought this was written perfectly and super cute I don t so much have a love for theatre and you don t have to either to be able to read, love and appreciate this book If you love dogs then I highly recommend this book One of my favorites


  • It s been a while since I ve read Young Adult books that weren t something in the sci fi realm This was REALLY good, took me back to my childhood when I used to read books about animals, always wanting some of my own This book was really down to earth, came with mostly grounded advice, and just had a really good premise moral story ending Very satisfying I wish there was a continuation book, but I m ok even though there isn t.


  • I enjoyed this book very much I think it could be because I am a huge lover of animals, especially dogs, that I thought it brought much joy reading Brande does a great job with Riley and really builds her characters around her well I find it hard at times to see other writers make their awkward character be also liked by the reader and I think she kept her true to what she represented with not changing her drastically in the end.


  • I ALMOST NEVER give 5 stars That s how much I loved this story All of the characters were awesome and very well done I was mooning over Nate by half way through I had tears during several parts I really felt for Rieley, she was an amazing character If you even remotely like dogs READ THIS They are the show stealers


  • RobinWay cook book I thought when I started reading this book that it would be a fantasy The whole birds and dogs in the beginning of the book had me thinking where is she going with this story If you love dogs you will love this book If you enjoy a good story about finding yourself this is a book for you Robin good story Keep up the good work.


  • This is a cute MG novel There are no extraordinary frills, but it s an enjoyable read And it has dogs I think what I like is the subtle message that things get better Sometimes they don t get better until you move or grow up or meet new people, but there are people out there who appreciate your quirks.


  • I am LOVING this Robin sent me an eGalley yep, I called her Robin first name basis, we re Tight and I can t stop reading SO SO Good Update It continued to be GREAT right up to the last page Definitely one I will be recommending to my teens.


  • Read this book for our mother daughter book club While it was our fluffy pick for the beginning of summer it did touch on many of the issues facing young teens Did provide some discussion about bullying and acceptance but very predictable.


  • a Young Adult work of fiction, this book was right up my alley All about a girl that relates to animals better than people, and about some of the issues she s had in school because of it I loved this book SO much I highly recommend it to my crazy dog friends


  • My 12 year old loves this book and really relates to the main character, since her interests, pursuits, and personality are exactly that of the character.
