Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong by Prudence Shen
by Prudence Shen and Faith Erin Hicks
288 pages, 2013
When the captain of the basketball team and the president of the robotics club are best friends, things are always messy! Meet Charlie and Nate, friends even though they move in completely different circles. But when the cheerleaders, including Charlie's ex-girlfriend, and Nate's robotics team start competing for funding, Charlie is caught in the middle. On top of all of that, his home life sucks right now- his dad is gone with work all the time, his mom lives in another state with her boyfriend, and holidays are likely to be a mess.
When the cheerleaders and robotics team finally join forces to enter a robot death match, Charlie's life finally seems to be falling into place! Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong!
Really fun book! Lots of humor, great glimpse into teen life and all the different influences. A little out there at times, but really fun. Definitely a recommend to middle school and high school! Especially those that like robot death matches!
