Denman was born in Calgary, Alberta, and spent her childhood in a house one street away from the open prairie. When she was 11, her family moved to Delta, British Columbia, and she got to know life on the coast: tides, clam digging, rain gear, green grass year-round and enormous trees. It was there that Kim and her sisters got their first pony. She continued to live near Vancouver for many years while finishing school, attending college, and eventually getting married and starting a family. She always loved writing and when her teen children and their friends provided inspiration and re-kindled memories of this challenging passage, writing for teens became an irresistible venture.

My french is not strong enough to work through this with any sort of accuracy on it's own I read the english version first and then went on to this version where it became clear very quickly that this book was written in english first and then as an afterthought translated into french.
There is a lot of slang and phrasing used in the english version that become choppy or inaccurate in the french version. The story is really cute and the MC Zack is realistically weird. His awkwardness surprisingly comes across better in french than it did in the english version. For some reason he seems slightly less cool in french In any case the awkward is better in french.
The french version gets a 3 star for the choppy translation and the english version gets a 4.

This was a pretty good book for this series. I liked how the story felt longer, in a good way, than it actually was. Zack was an okay character. He seemed typical of a teenage boy, I wished he would've behaved better but at least the story had a strong and caring parental figure in it which can be rare in books nowadays. Stuff We All Get is a book that I believe would appeal to both boys and girls.
Nov 20, Jenn rated it liked it. I was sure I knew how it would end; the ending was one I didn't like. Thankfully I did not. The story was good, had a strong morale and shared some key points of coming of age. Nov 01, Fatima Hernandez rated it liked it. Is a amazing book, but the things pass fast and doesn't has so much details. May 09, Jaymee Sitchon rated it really liked it.
Denman was an interesting read. The book starts of with Zack, a fifteen-year-old boy, receiving a suspension from school. Zack got grounded, and was stuck at home with numerous of chores to do. His mother, a police officer, finds out about geocaching and decided to bring Zack along. Apparently, geocaching is very popular all over the world. Basically, people are on hunt for a box, which they call the geocache. One thing I found very interesting was that Zack has a sound-colour synesthesia, where he sees colours when he listens to music. While listening to the songs, he explains the colours he is seeing based on the song.

He goes on a detective mode, and tries to look for the singer. He finds out that it was a girl named, Jolene. When Zack found Jolene, he had nothing but praises for her. I liked how it was fast but very fun and informative read.

And, during his week at home, where he is, obviously, grounded, Zack's mom thinks it might be fun to take up geocaching -- a hobby where people use GPS trackers to find hidden treasure all over the world. There are several caches in Zack's new town, and, reluctantly -- if only to get out of the house and his chores -- he joins his mom for an "adventure.
Soon, Zack is entranced by the songs on the CD. And he's determined to find the girl singing. So determined, in fact, it's all he can think about.
