Nothing Can Possible Go Wrong by Prudence Shen


Nothing Can Possible Go Wrong by Prudence Shen

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? Nothing can possibly go wrong.


Smart and funny; don't miss this one. Kirkus Reviews This story has everything: basketball, dastardly cheerleaders, a robot rumble, conniving geeks, a house party, family drama, student body council elections, and a tiny sliver of romance. Booklist, starred review I love Hicks
