It's geeks versus jocks in an epic battle of the beverages!

From "one of the most real, honest, and still funny male voices to come around in a while" (YALSA) comes a brand-new cast of quirky characters, pitting fat boy Gabe against the high school cheerleading team in a battle over control of the school's soda machine.

The war is ON! Never have the stakes been so high. Never have the trenches been so deep. Never has one soda vending machine been so vital. When the high school cheerleading team takes over the machine's funds previously collected by the pep band, Gabe will not stand for it. Something must be done.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A must-read for all band geeks—and a fun summer ride for anyone who remembers the factions of high school, and the challenges of trying to fit in.”

    Cleveland Plain Dealer

  • “Herbach’s novel realistically addresses the difficulty of making major life changes and the empowerment of not feeling the need to blend in.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “On the surface, this novel is your run-of-the-mill ‘rise of the geeks’ story, complete with self-deprecating humor, over-the-top drama, and useless adults. However, the narrative evolves into a coming-of-age tale in which a teen from a broken home, who uses food as a coping mechanism, begins to take control of his life…The protagonist is funny, honest, and an utterly likable narrator; his character growth and the decisions he makes are believable and his refusal to be a victim is refreshing.”

    Library Journal

  • “A stream-of-consciousness conversation that is simultaneously humorous and poignant. What could have been didactic on many levels, instead comes across as validation of the power of friends, family, and a few understanding, caring adults.”


  • “The funny, profane text embraces the idea that nobody is perfect…Gabe’s character growth will satisfy any appetite. A funny popcorn read.”
