My next pick was another graphic novel, Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong! by Prudence Shen and by Faith Erin Hicks.
Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong! is the story of neighbors and sort of friends Charlie, the laid-back captain of the basketball team, and Nate, the neurotic and scheming president of the robotics club. Nate wants the discretionary funds the student council has so the club can go to the annual robotics competition. Carlie’s former girlfriend, Holly, wants the money for new cheerleading uniforms for the cheerleading competition. So Nate decides to run for student government president, and the cheerleaders decide that Charlie will run with them doing his campaigning. When the campaigning turns ugly, can the two groups must learn to work together for a solution that will make both groups happy. But can cheerleaders, a jock, and the robotics kid’s get along long enough for them to achieve a mutual goal? I mean, nothing could possibly go wrong? Right?
Full of laugh out loud scenarios, high school politics, and family squabbles this graphic novel is perfect for geeks and cool kids everywhere. The artwork perfectly fits the story, especially the look of each of the teens fitting their personalities. I could so see these teens walking into the library for various reasons. Also, I’d love to see a sequel to this one if possible. Four Lightsabers for this Best Graphic Novel and Quick Pick.
