Nothing but Trouble by Zelmer Wilson is about Bobbie Lamont. She is not your typical girl. She used to prefer books over boys and she only has one friend, Billie Carver. Instead of going away to college, she decided to stay with her parents and attend Tulane University. After attending an all-girls Catholic school called St. Augustine Academy for Girls, she was very excited to see what life will bring her. That turns out to be Malcolm.
After getting her heart broken by two boys before him, Malcolm felt like a gift to Bobbie; little did she know that Malcolm's love would be short lived as well. Two months after that, he has to leave to attend Columbia University to get his master’s degree. It is an opportunity that he should not miss and he does not want to. Bobbie does not want him to leave, but she has no choice. When the day comes, he kisses her goodbye and walks out of her life. As her life takes an unsuspecting turn, she takes joy in writing and reading. Her friendship with her only friend is threatened after her goodbye to Malcolm. With outside forces trying to break up the two girls and test their friendship, they will have to make the decision to stay or cut each other loose.
Zelmer Wilson wrote a beautifully complicated story. The story had so many facets - at one point we see the friendship problems between the two girls, and at another point we are seeing Bobbie dealing with boys and sexual tension. There is so much happening in the story, but all the elements are well thought out and told through beautiful prose. A job well done by Zelmer Wilson. I really enjoyed it!
