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, and the cheerleaders retaliate by making Charlie their figure-head in the ugliest class election campaign the school as ever seen. At stake? Student group funding that will either cover a robotics competition or new cheerleading uniforms — but not both.
Bad sportsmanship? Sure. Chainsaws? Why not! Nothing can possibly go wrong.
Also in this week's Unshelved Book Club you'll find books about a serial killer hunter, a twelve-year-old trying to make things right, a woman who marries her teenage fling, douchebags, a Japanese baker, a teenage girl undergoing disturbing changes in her personality and behavior, an adoptee out to meet her birth mother, and a boy chasing the thief who stole his stuffed pig.
