Besties: Prank War

Kayla Miller

From the New York Times bestselling World of Click by Kayla Miller comes a graphic novel about besties Trent and Sawyer. When they accidentally start a class-wide prank war, the boys need to get especially crafty if they're going to come out on top--with all of their friendships intact.

Trent and Sawyer make their Besties series debut with a bang and a crash! These two friends never back down from a challenge, whether it presents itself at the skate park or in the school hallway, but will that determination get them in over their heads?

Between helping with their friend Tyler's RPG campaign, catching streams of pro skateboarder Trixie Sampson's new video series, and--oh yeah--homework, Trent and Sawyer are more than a little busy... but when Trixie announces a competition that might result in the boys getting to meet her and her crew, how could they resist entering?!

The duo become single-minded in their quest to be the lucky "Trixsters" to win the prize, but it's not easy pulling off the perfect prank AND catching it on video. With their friends growing resentful of being unwilling targets and after drawing the ire of the class prank-queen, Nat, the buddies soon find themselves losing at their own game. As an all-out prank war spins out of control, Trent and Sawyer realize they might have pranked themselves by starting it.

New York Times bestselling author Kayla Miller, co-author Jeffery Canino, and illustrator Sarah Turner with her playful and expressive art style, deliver another vibrant and unique portrayal of middle school friendship in this latest title in the Besties series.

Praise for this book

"In both the text and art, Miller's debut authentically conveys nuanced challenges and everyday moments of childhood, offering a guide for kids navigating friendship, family, and goals." -- Publishers Weekly

"Well-defined, consistent frames and gutters, along with clear-cut visual storytelling and readable lettering, make this an excellent recommendation for fans of the format and newcomers alike. Those who enjoy Raina Telgemeier, Victoria Jamieson, and the like will find this a lighter but welcome addition and be happy to hear Olive's adventures will continue." -- School Library Journal
