Meet Sherman Mack. Short. Nerdy. Amateur P.I. and prepared to do anything for Dini Trioli.

Nobody knows who began it or when it became a tradition, but every girl at Harewood Tech fears being D-listed, a ritual that wipes her off the social map forever. When Sherman believes Dini is in danger of being D-listed, he snatches up his surveillance gear and launches a full-scale investigation to uncover who is responsible.

Could it be the captain of the lacrosse team?

The hottest girls in school, the Trophy Wives?

Or maybe their boyfriends?

One thing is for sure: Sherman Mack is on the case. And he's not giving up.

Part comedy, part mystery, and with all of Juby's trademark tongue-in-cheek humor, Getting the Girl takes on one of the cruelest aspects of high school: how easy it is for an entire school to turn on someone, and how hard it can be to be the only one willing to fight back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Refreshing and Fun! I really enjoyed this book! It was fun, refreshing, unique and different. I loved the cooking aspect and the lessons learned in this book. It reminded me of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but lighter. I highly suggest this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read it, love it! I loved Getting the Girl. Sherman Mack is a budding detective and wannabe chef. He is out to clear the name of a girl at school who is about to be socially black listed. Sherm rises to the occasion with wit, charm and a little running away. Susan Juby has created a character who you can't help but love. Read it! Love it!
