Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong by Prudence Shen & Faith Erin Hicks
I literally just finished reading this book. It's so good that I'm blogging about it immediately.
Right after his breakup Charlie finds out from his neighbor Nate that his exgirlfriend is ruining everything. The science club had money which the robotics club of which Nate is president planned to use to go to a robotics competition. Unfortunately, someone found out that the money was not earmarked specifically for the science club, so now it's up to the student council to decide what happens to the money. More unfortunately, the cheerleaders think they need the money for new uniforms. To convince the student council to give the robotics club the money, Nate decides to campaign for student council president. The cheerleaders enlist Charlie (against his will). It's an all-out battle... Until they all end up in trouble and no one is getting the money. Now they have to work together (?!!) to enter the Robot Rumble and win so that both the robotics team and the cheerleaders can get the money they need. Nothing can possibly go wrong, right?
This was a fantastic graphic novel about high school rivalry. The characters are all so perfect. I know I just shared my top 5 of the year so far, but I know for a fact this one has to be on my top 10 of the year already.
