Meet Sherman Mack.

Short. Nerdy. Amateur P.I. And prepared to do anything for Dini Trioli, tenth-grade goddess.

Nobody knows how the tradition began, 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 launches a full-scale investigation to save her. Part comedy, part mystery, and with all of Jubyís trademark laugh-out-loud style, Getting the Girl takes on the cruelest aspect of high school social life.

Meet Sherman Mack, the only one willing to fight back.
