There's a fine line between getting extra credit and having no life. Here are a few sure signs you're doing too much extra credit: You don't use up your maximum allowed text messages for the month. You haven't thought about Hannah Spivero for six straight hours. The screen on your television is cold. Teachers actually smile when they see you coming.

The world's most reluctant reader, Charlie Joe Jackson, is becoming an expert in extra credit. How is that possible? His report card is so grim that Charlie Joe has promised his parents that he'll get straight As so they won't send him to an academic summer camp. Now, instead of finagling ways to get out of reading, Charlie Joe is staying late after school, posing for art class, and even acting in a school play about the inventor of paper towels...all while falling for the new girl in town! If there's one thing Charlie Joe is discovering, it's that extra credit can definitely make your life extra complicated.

    " Hilarious with heart! Charlie Joe Jackson embarks on his latest tomfoolery in his Guide to Extra Credit. Enthusiastic and reluctant readers alike will love reading this story and learning from Charlie Joe's patented tips. Can't wait for the next book! "

    " Fun and funny. A great alternative to the Wimpy Kid books as Charlie Joe has heart and learns some valuable lessons without the book coming across preachy. "

    " This was funny and I enjoyed it! I hadn't read another Charlie Joe books but I plan to. "

    " Another wonderful book. Charlie has to get all A's and one B on his next report card or it's off to summer reading camp. Very fun, good middle school age story. "

    " Charlie Joe is one of my favorite guy characters . . . EVER! His newest book is even better than the first. And that's saying something. Get ready to laugh and laugh and learn a few lessons along the way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 2/4/2013

    " ThisDiary of a Wimpy Kid wannabe is a light, fun read, but Charlie Joe never really grabbed me as a protagonist, and the middle school voices didn't quite ring true. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/4/2013

    " Great choice for reluctant readers...funny, not intimidating, and some kids will be able to relate to how much Charlie Joe Jackson dislikes school. Not much of a message in it though! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JuJu | 12/8/2012

    " This is the first I have read of Charlie Joe Jackson, but it won't be the last. Delightfully cute and funny! "

    " Not great, but cute. Short, with some funny moments. "

About the Author
Author Tommy Greenwald

Tommy Greenwald has enjoyed reading all his life, which is why he’s appalled that his kids Charlie, Joe, and Jack, would prefer getting a dental check-up to checking out a book. After years of pleading, threatening, and bribing, Tommy finally decided the only way to get his kids to read was to write a book about how to get out of reading. And they read it! (So they say). Greenwald is the Executive Creative Director at SpotCo, an entertainment advertising agency in New York City and lives in Connecticut with his family.
