The Trouble with Lexie

(2016)
A novel by

 

"Blau has a steady nerve, as well as a wicked imagination...It takes you a little while to realize that you're reading is a top-notch comic writing, because you're getting all the stuff you normally get in literary fiction as well; rites of passage, the complications of fractured families, the works."
Nick Hornby


From the beloved author of The Summer of Naked Swim Parties and The Wonder Bread Summer comes the jaw-dropping story of Lexie James, a counselor at an exclusive New England prep school whose search for happiness lands her in unexpectedly wild trouble.

Lexie James escaped: After being abandoned by her alcoholic father and kicked out of the apartment to make room for her mother's boyfriend, Lexie made it on her own. She earned a master's degree, conquered terrifying panic attacks, got engaged to the nicest guy she'd ever met, and landed a counseling job at the prestigious Ruxton Academy, a prep school for the moneyed children of the elite.

But as her wedding date nears, Lexie has doubts. Yes, she's created the stable life she craved as a child, but is stability really what she wants? In her moment of indecision, Lexie strikes up a friendship with a Ruxton alumnus, the father of her favorite student. It's a relationship that blows open Lexie's carefully constructed life and then dunks her into shocking situations with headline-worthy trouble.

The perfect cocktail of naughtiness, heart, adventure, and humor, The Trouble with Lexie is a wild and poignant story of the choices we make to outrun our childhoods - and the choices we have to make to outrun our entangled adult lives.
