Prudence Shen and superstar illustrator Faith Erin Hick's hilarious and madcap young adult graphic novel, now in full color! You wouldn't expect Nate and Charlie to be friends. Charlie's the laid-back captain of the basketball team, and Nate is the neurotic, scheming president of the robotics club. But they are friends, however unlikely-until Nate declares war on the cheerleaders. At stake is funding that will either cover a robotics competition or new cheerleading uniforms-but not both. It's only going to get worse: After both parties are stripped of their funding on grounds of abominable misbehavior, Nate enrolls the club's robot in a battlebot competition in a desperate bid for prize money. Bad sportsmanship? Sure. Chainsaws? Why not. Running away from home on Thanksgiving to illicitly enter a televised robot deathmatch? Sign them up!
