Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong by Prudence Shen & Faith Erin Hicks

Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong
What could possibly go wrong when a group of nerdy robotic club members enlist help of the cheerleaders to bring their robot to a competition? 

This graphic novel follows Charlie who is dealing with an absentee father and a mother who lives in another state. His friend, Nate, who is the president of the robotics club, is trying to raise money for a field trip to a robot fair. Unfortunately the cheerleaders think they should have the money for new uniforms. The administration will leave the decision to the student council. Naturally that means Nate should run for president of the council. In retaliation the cheerleaders nominate Charlie as a candidate. Things escalate until the obvious solution was that they should pool their resources so they both win.

The first prize of a robot battle competition would be more than enough to meet both groups' needs. The cheerleaders are needed to front the money for the entry fee and gas and the club has the robot. Charlie has his dad's SUV with room for everyone as well as the robot.

Lots of fun for everyone.
