Sixth grade is no picnic for Nate Wright. His pal Francis won't stop bombarding him with useless trivia. A wild pitch knocks him out of a ballgame and into the emergency room. And the only thing standing between Nate and summer school is a study session with the worst possible tutor: his too-obnoxious-for-words arch enemy, Gina. But when Nate rides the Flamethrower with a mystery girl at the fair, sparks fly. Nate's certain he's just met the love of his life--and then she disappears! Can our love-struck hero track her down? Or will the only girl in his life be the bone-crushing Kim Cressley? The troubles are piling up in this hilarious new collection of Big Nate comics, and there may be only one thing for Nate to do: HUG IT OUT!
