Synopsis: "I'm good with girls. I have a talent for making them care for me." boast Storm Russell, world authority on girl chasing. Indeed, most of his high school years are spent in the relentless pursuit of "the perfect girl."

Storm's obsession leaves him little time to think about acting responsibly, either in school or at home. When he meets Paula, the girl he really wants, Storm finds himself totally unprepared for a serious relationship. It's not until tragedy strikes during his senior year that Storm, with Paula's help, finds the strength to confront his immaturity.

Malmgren's remarkable first novel offers a poignant yet optimistic view of a young man's growth toward awareness and responsibility in this delicate coming of age novel. The Whole Nine Yards received honorable mention in the 1984 Delacorte Press.

From the Back Cover: from The Whole Nine Yards:
"I have cared about nothing but girls for the entire span of my high school life.  My efforts, energies, schemes, and dreams have centered on winning the heart of one girl or another.  The route I took walking home from school was determined by which girl's house I wanted to pass on that particular day.  The classes I chose to enroll in were carefully designed to give me maximum exposure to assorted female talent.  I've bloated myself at water fountains between classes because I knew a certain girl was due to walk by.  I've done time in detention in pursuit of romance.  I've gone out for sports, attended parties, volunteered for projects, and completed homework assignments in the hope of a sexual encounter.  I have abased, embarrassed, denied, and distinguished myself all for the sake of this girl or that.
