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?
