What could go wrong?
NOTHING CAN POSSIBLY GO WRONG by Prudence Shen and Faith Erin Hicks. First Second, 2013.
The robotics club and the cheerleaders go to war over which will be funded. The cheerleaders decide to force Charlie, the captain of the basketball team to run for Student Council president while his neighbor Nate elects to run himself. Nate if the president of the robotics team. Each group is certain that their candidate will win and the funding will be theirs. What happens when the best laid plans go awry? This GN explores cliques, misconceptions groups have about those outside. It also shows what can happen when teamwork replaces rivalry (kind of).
