Reggie and Me is the first book in the Dani Moore Trilogy. Dani’s story is told through her diary in the wake of her rape and subsequent court case.
Having moved with her mum, Dani starts year eleven at a new school, facing various challenges that bring a renewed energy to face whatever is thrown at her and carry on regardless. She realises that ‘normality’ is something that she can define herself, with the help of her dog Reggie and the people around her.
Reggie and Me is more than a story of survival, as the reader is taken on an inspiring journey of personal development, interweaved with tools that girls and young women can use to create the positive future they deserve.

Just finished it. Wow. Enjoyable and easy to read but a powerful message for those who’ve suffered personal trauma. I love the format you’ve used. Short chapters keep the pace moving. Love James Patterson’s books as he uses same format. Inspiring. Wish I’d had this insight / information when I was teaching. The power of animals to help humans is awesome. When is second book coming out? ~ Amazon Reader
