Praise for Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading: " With its subversive humor and contemporary details drawn straight from kids' worlds, this clever title should attract a wide following." -Booklist, starred review" This is a fun, fast-moving look at middle-school life through the eyes of a kid who would rather clean his room than pick up a book. Reluctant readers will be pleased." -School Library Journal " Slackers everywhere have a new, likable hero in Charlie Joe Jackson." -Kirkus Reviews
