Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong
Title: Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong
Author: Prudence Shen and Faith Erin Hicks
GRAPHIC TEEN NOTHING
Charlie, the captain of the basketball team, and Nate, the president of the robotics club, are best friends. Their friendship is tested when the robotics club and the cheerleading squad—who use Charlie as their figurehead—compete for student group funding.
You wouldn’t expect Nate and Charlie to be friends. Charlie’s the laid-back captain of the basketball team, and Nate is the neurotic, scheming president of the robotics club. But they are friends, however unlikely—until Nate declares war on the cheerleaders. At stake is funding that will either cover a robotics competition or new cheerleading uniforms—but not both.
It’s only going to get worse: after both parties are stripped of their funding on grounds of abominable misbehavior, Nate enrolls the club’s robot in a battlebot competition in a desperate bid for prize money. Bad sportsmanship? Sure. Chainsaws? Why not. Running away from home on Thanksgiving to illicitly enter a televised robot death match? Of course!
In Faith Erin Hicks’ and Prudence Shen’s world of high school class warfare and robot death matches, Nothing can possibly go wrong.
