ALA Booklist
Peirce's mischievous grade-school hero returns for more misadventures in another blend of easy-reading narrative and comic-strip snippets modeled after the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. In an unbelievable double stroke of bad luck, Nate gets paired with the insufferable brainiac Gina on a class project and stuck with her on his otherwise championship-worthy fleeceball (indoor baseball) team. Lessons are learned and comeuppances are delivered on both sides. This is a hearty dose of low-fiber fun for boys, and Peirce's cartoon tidbits make the pages fly past with punch lines galore.
Horn Book
Nate (Big Nate) is partnered with grade-grubbing archnemesis Gina Hemphill-Toms for a research paper. Peirce gets the details of a sixth-grade boy just right: the humiliation of first love, monotony of school, relentlessness of bullies, etc. The angst is tempered by Nate's talent for making hilarious lists and drawing comics. Even the most jaded middle-grader will find much to laugh about here.
Kirkus Reviews
Fresh from his daily comic strip, sixth grader Nate Wright returns for another novel-length adventure ( Big Nate: In a Class By Himself , 2010). He must endure both being partnered with overly perfect Gina on a social-studies project AND her playing on the intramural fleeceball team he captains. To make matters worse, Nate missed the deadline to submit the name of his team to Coach, and Gina submitted "Kuddle Kittens" for him. Total embarrassment! Gina messes up the team's first game, and she fears Nate will mess up her A+ average. The two strike a deal: He'll let her do the report on Ben Franklin alone, and she'll bow out of future fleeceball games. Nate may think he's got the bases covered...but he can't seem to learn that his plans never quite work out. Peirce's second Big Nate tale is even more stuffed with Nate's own comics than his first, including a couple "Poor Nate's Almanacks" and his goofy imaginings in "true" life comix. A latter-day Peanuts and a kinder, gentler Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Fans will be in heaven; thank goodness number three is already on the way. (Graphic hybrid/fiction. 7-11)
School Library Journal
Gr 3&11;6&12; Peirce's second book about Big Nate is clever and funny. For Mrs. Godfrey's newest special project, a research assignment on a great American, the sixth grader gets paired with the perfect A-plus student, Gina. Horrible as this seems, something great also occurs&12;Nate is picked as a Fleeceball team captain and has a chance to win the coveted Spoffy (Sports Played Only for Fun) trophy. Unfortunately, he is late to the gym when players are chosen, and Gina is on his team. The pacing of the text and the black-and-white comic-book illustrations give the story a fun and carefree rhythm. Readers will be delighted to pick this up and find great characters who will stay with them.&12; Patty Saidenberg, George Jackson Academy, New York City

"Big Nate is funny, big time" —Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid

For fans of Jeff Kinney and Raina Telgemeier, here comes the second novel in the New York Times bestselling Big Nate series. 

BIG NATE will surpass all others!

But it won’t be easy. He’s stuck with Gina, his all-time enemy, in a class project for his least favorite teacher Mrs. Godfrey, aka Godzilla. To make matters worse, Gina ALSO ends up on his fleeceball team, right when Nate is set to win his first fleeceball championship ever. This is his moment for glory, but Gina's sure to steal his thunder, or ruin everything.  

Will Nate win or lose? Pass or fail? Or end up in detention . . . AGAIN?

Meet BIG NATE, self-described genius and definitely NOT the teacher’s pet in this comic-strip novel perfect for anyone who's ever been to middle school.
