Jefferson Middle School has always (with the exception of a debate) beat P.S. 38 at almost everything.

- On Page 118, Dee Dee does not have long earrings unlike most of the book.
- On page 208, Nate has his cast off. However, he should have it on, since starting on page 138 and foward, Nate's cast is on.
- On Page 1, Nate and Chad appear too tall, appearing to be the same size as the lockers.
