I would recommend any Lincoln Pierce reader the book “Big Nate in the Zone.” In the beginning of the book Nate makes a bet with a seventh grader named Marcus. The bet was that in the new Fitness contest the sixth graders won’t win any of the races. A few days before the contest, Nate and his two friends Francis and Teddy had to play a song in a school assembly. Nate was the lead singer but he had stage fright and Francis had to sing instead but Francis had a very bad voice. At the assembly every ...more

Big Nate Genius Mode by Lincon Pierce was a good book. I thought it was a good book because it was funny and interesting. I enjoyed this book in the Big Nate series.

Big Nate is at school excited for summer break. But he gets bad grades so he has to read a book every week over winter break. So he try's to do as much with Francis and teddy like build tree houses. But Nate gets imbaressed by Gina trying to get revenge.

I recommend this book to other kids because this book is funny. Probably the perf

I liked this book beacuse Nate was in school and an idea of becoming popular in the world. but then a teacher is trying to stop him and got Nate det ention slips each time he offended her. 2.

I would recemond this book to someone beacuse, this book would teach you another way of being ...more

Normally comic books are not usually what I like, but this book is an exception. Not only was it hilarious, but the characters had surprising amount of personality especially for a comic book. No plot growth, or character after growth (it's a middle grade comic book). If you need a good laugh this is the book. It still makes me laugh even though I've read read it more than once! :)

Nate is unlucky in many things, especially when he gets a picture of Jenny kissing him in 2 years old. He later finds out that Jenny kisses every boy that she can catch.

I like this book because Nate's face was kind of weird when he is in trouble

I don't know why Jenny hates Nate that much.

This was another funny good book with Big Nate. The title Genius Mode is really sarcastic, because Big Nate is actually being a lunatic on almost every page.
