There's a crisis at Eastport Middle School! It appears that everyone has a boyfriend or girlfriend except . . . Charlie Joe Jackson??!? Yup-he's the only single guy out of all his friends. How is this possible? Even Pete Milano snagged a girl! Well, Charlie Joe refuses to be left out. He quickly goes looking for help in the last place anyone would think to find him-the library. And what he finds is the gem of all gems, the guidebook of all guidebooks, the key to finally getting a girl! Now, everyone is suddenly coming to him for love advice. (Oh, how the tables have turned.) But Charlie Joe's world is swiftly turned upside down when he realizes the girl he actually likes... might not actually be the girl he likes.

Review:

"A perfect book for the non-reader or reluctant reader in your life . . . Laugh-out-loud funny, clever, and relevant, I believe Tommy Greenwald has written a book that will appeal to kids of all reading tastes."--ReadKiddoRead.com
"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" "A delightful choice for reluctant readers . . . Tommy Greenwald's writing style is breezy and accessible without being too easy. It is also extremely funny and hard to put down. If the book's cover showed something blowing up, every reluctant boy reader in middle school would be proud to carry it around while secretly enjoying the nonviolent, straightforward story. Bookworms won't care; they'll love it either way."--"BookPage"
"Kids who do peruse the book will enjoy Charlie Joe's chuckleworthy tips on keeping reading at bay, even if they take excepti

"In author Tommy Greenwald's raucous debut...this comedy of comeuppance shows its true colors, and, irony of ironies, is impossible to put down!" --Disney's "Family Fun""A perfect book for the non-reader or reluctant reader in your life...Laugh-out-loud funny, clever, and relevant, I believe Tommy Greenwald has written a book that will appeal to kids of all reading tastes." --ReadKiddoRead.com "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.

"No middle schooler wants to face a month at summer enrichment camp, but many will enjoy watching Charlie Joe work harder than he has ever worked before to avoid it . . . even if he fails." --"Kirkus Reviews"

"No middle schooler wants to face a month at summer enrichment camp, but many will enjoy watching Charlie Joe work harder than he has ever worked before to avoid it...even if he fails."--"Kirkus"

"Sure to appeal to reluctant readers who will identify with Charlie Joe's knack for avoiding reading and schoolwork, this title would also make a fabulous read-aloud. Luckily for fans of Charlie Joe, another installment in this unlikely hero's life is forthcoming." - "School Library Journal"

* "With his 'deep-seated love of not reading, ' this title's young narrator, Charlie Joe, speaks straight to other book-averse middle-schoolers. But avid readers will equally enjoy Charlie Joe's story, with its wild parodies and plot and character surprises that continue to the very end. A perfect read aloud, this debut is filled with passages that beg to be shared . . . with its subversive humor and contemporary details drawn straight from kids' worlds, this clever title should attract a wide following." --Booklist, starred review "Slackers everywhere have a new, likable hero in Charlie Joe Jackson." --Kirkus "Anyone concerned about the state of education in America will be more
concerned after reading this book. But slacker kids who want to mail in
their next book report will find it beneficial." --Kenny Mayne, ESPN Sportscaster
"Watch out Wimps! Charlie Joe Jackson is showing kids exactly how its done... and by "it" I mean how to avoid that pesky task of reading a book. However, what these students don't know is that in the process of learning how to avoid reading a book... oops they've read one... and if the experience of this librarian is correct, it will only be the first book they will read! When your new readers discover they have finished this book they will be struck by one of two thoughts: 1. Where's the sequel? 2. That wasn't so bad... got anything else like it. Charlie Joe Jackson is like a free scoop of ice cream... enticing, cool and will leave the newly minted readers hungry for more!" - Josh Newhouse, Librarian and Reading Advocate, Sligh Middle Magnet School; Tampa, Florida
