About the Book

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 Girl takes 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.

Critical Praise

?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.?
