Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Extra Credit

Written by Tommy Greenwald

Narrated by MacLeod Andrews

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars



About this audiobook

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.

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. The result was Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading. And they read it! (So they say.) The Executive Creative Director at SPOTCO, an entertainment advertising agency in New York City, Tommy lives in Connecticut with his wife, Cathy; his non-reading sons, Charlie, Joe and Jack; and his dogs, Moose and Coco.
