Sunglasses. Check. Binoculars. Check. Notepad. Check. Mom's pink bike. Check. Check? 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.

There's humour here, but also some sharp insights into teen social dynamics.

It was an entertaining book. I like how the main character, Sherman, helps the defiled girls even at the point where his own reputation is at risk. Recommend to people who wants to have a good and easy read in a short period of time!

I really REALLY enjoyed this book, and I'm a grown women. I laughed out loud while reading it. A wonderfully quick read. Another hit from Susan Juby.

A piece of hair had fallen away from his comb-over. Fred isn’t very old, but he only has about eight strands of hair left on the top of his head. He does a lot with them, though.
