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

She holds a master's degree in publishing. She currently lives on Vancouver Island with her husband, James, and their dog, who prefers to remain anonymous. ...

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!

Editorial Reviews

?Think Harriet the Spy meets Sam Spade, with a good dose of Wayne?s World thrown in. Funny, honest, self-effacing, [Sherman] Mack is the charmingly irresistible heart that beats behind Juby?s funny and immensely readable Getting the Girl.?
