With more detentions than he can count, Nate is in DEEP in Big Nate Blasts Off! When Nate submits a mocking cartoon of Randy Betancourt – winner of PS 38's ‘most likely to mop the floor with someone else's face' award – to the school paper, tensions between the two are on the rise. After Randy jumps Nate the boys are caught in a fight by the Principle and forced to undergo joint peer counselling sessions run by Nate's arch-enemy: teachers' pet Gina! And as if that wasn't enough to deal with the Mud Bowl – an annual ultimate Frisbee game against P.S. 38's biggest rivals: Jefferson Middle School – is coming up. Will Nate be the star of the team, or a total bomb? And can he keep his crush on new-girl Ruby a secret, or will someone spill the beans?
