Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong:

Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong By: Prudence Shen & Faith Erin Hicks
Non-fiction: Graphic Novel, YA 280 pages
Book Count: 27

The first thing you need to know about this book is the title on the cover runs out of space and does the curve down to fit it in. So you know it in fact will go wrong.  This story is a twist on the classic nerds vs. jock story.  Both the robotics club and the cheerleaders want the same money for each of their groups. The captain of the basketball team is friends with the leader of the robotics club and dated the captain of the cheerleaders, so he gets stuck in the middle of the argument. First the robotics club leader runs for student president to get the money.  So the cheerleaders sign the basketball captain for president and campaign for him as he won't. Both campaigns get messy and that's when the story takes a surprising turn.
