Big Nate Flips Out
Francis managed to get the camera for Nate from Mrs. Godfrey to take "candids" for the newspaper called the Chronicle. Later on, Nick Blonsky stole the camera by unknown means because he wanted to get Nate in trouble, and he though it was hilarious, but instead ruined Nate and Francis' friendship and gave Francis a week detention. After the camera was returned, Nick pridefully revealed this to Francis and Nate. Because of this, Nick gets suspended from school for a week. Nick was supposed to be a part of the Trivia Slam on Gina Hemphill-Toms' team, but could not, as the Slam occurred while Nick was out of school. Gina instead put Randy Betancourt on her team.
