Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading 
by Tommy Greenwald 
Illustrated by J.P. Coovert

Genre:  Realistic Fiction, Humor
Interest level:  4th-8th grades

     Charlie Joe Jackson is a character that will bring a smile to readers' faces.  He is a "reluctant reader" which means he will do practically anything to avoid reading a book.  Charlie takes pride in the fact that he's never read an entire book in his least not since The Giver.  His zany antics will sound and feel familiar to many students as they laugh along at Charlie's desperate acts that eventually catch up with him.
