      Big Nate is always in detention. Nate and Gina never get along. Nate doesn't like Artur, but Artur wants to be friends with Nate. Will the rivalry ever stop?

            Big Nate Makes the Grade is actually an OK book. I never knew that I could not actually stifle a laugh. This book made me laugh, which was great. One thing that I thought could improve about this book is that the plot of the story can just set straight on one scene and the problems about it. I understand that the book may have breaks that it needs, but I would like it more if this comic book could be more like Real Friends by Shannon Hale. Comparing Real Friends and Big Nate, I think that these two can't really balance except that the fact that they're both comics. All in all, I liked the book, but it could have some improvements.

                This book is funny. I love everything about it. The cover, the pages the characters! I love how on the cover Nate is holding up his paper which has an A+ on it and Gina falls down because she has an A! So funny! My fav part about the inside of the book are the books Nate writes like the teacher ratings! So funny! I have a dare, I dare you to not laugh at Nate.
