for the Sherm.
From Quill and Quire:
“Think Harriet the Spy meets Sam Spade, with a good dose of Wayne’s World thrown in. Funny, honest, self-effacing, the Mack is the charmingly irresistible heart that beats behind Juby’s funny and immensely readable Getting the Girl. …
Juby’s take on Sherman and the teen male perspective rings true. She handles her main character deftly, crafting his voice and actions into heroic proportions. From Mack’s embarrassment over his bartending, burlesque-dancing mom to his ongoing commentary about his raging hormones and his various turn-ons and fetishes, his deadpan style is hilarious, resulting in equally hilarious stunts and escapades.”
From School Library Journal:
“As if appealing to both genders and espousing integrity weren’t enough, the story is often funny, with an endearing main character. Getting the Girl is a pursuit worth undertaking.”
Thanks also to Rachel at A Fair Substitute for Heaven for her lovely review!
P.S. One more thing. I’ve recorded some information about my name on Teaching Books.net. If you were wondering how I got a name like Juby and what it means, you can now find out. Also, the site has name guides from all kinds of wonderful writers. It’s fun. Check it out if you get a chance.
P.P.S. My black eye is gone, but I think my brow bone is broken. Just FYI. My pity quotient was low today, so I thought I’d add that.
