Doggirl is next in my to-read pile.

Let's discuss it after you've read it, please! It's SO good!

I read Doggirl and loved it! I liked Riley--she was a believable and not at all typical main character. The details about dog training and how one would work with dogs in a live production were genuinely really interesting. And I love how Robin ended it, in a way that wasn't all let's-ride-off-into-the-sunset. You could see Riley moving forward, but in a way that seemed genuine to the character (which is to say SLOW).

I have to get Robin's newest book now.

I agree with all of that. Every little bit.
