“Save the cheerleader, save the world”. This was a popular mantra in the TV show Heroes, and also a plotline that rings true for “Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong” by Prudence Shen and Faith Erin Hicks. If you were a Glee fan and need a fix now that the show has ended, this story is for you! 

Nolan is coasting through high school as a jock and boyfriend of head cheerleader Holly, oh until she breaks up with him via text message. Then his friend Nate lets Nolan know that he and his ex-girlfriend Holly are officially at war when the school’s limited budget has to either go to the Robotics team so they can participate in a competition, or to the cheerleaders for new uniforms.

The competition gets more intense when both Holly and Nate decide to run for ASB president, which all comes to a screeching halt after they are both reprimanded for mud slinging campaign tactics. This leads to a very unlikely collaboration between the Robotics team and the Cheerleaders to figure out how to get what they both want, money for their causes.

Filled with well-timed comedic delivery and hilarious art work, this story will entertain and surprise you!  (Booktalk by Kathleen Dunbar, Teacher-Librarian,
