Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong

by Prudence Shen and Faith Erin Hicks. New York, NY: First Second, 2013

A graphic adaptation from the YA novel Voted Most Likely by Prudence Shen, it's full of unlikely friendships and nicely nuanced characters who bend and shatter stereotypes and expectations.

Nate Harding, president of the robotics club and the cheerleaders are vying for student council funding for new uniforms. While each group is convinced that their strategies are flawless, things don’t work out the way anyone had planned.
