Nothing but Trouble is a story about prejudice.
When Jay arrives at Glenwood Primary, Paul is assigned to look after him and be his 'buddy', but looking after Jay proves harder than he expected. Jay's family are travellers and the new boy doesn't say much or seem interested in making friends. But Paul soon discovers Jay has a secret - after school he goes to visit a family of foxes living in the garden of a derelict house.
Slowly a bond between the two boys develops, but this proves difficult at school as Paul is forced to choose sides between his new friend and his old ones...
