Charlie Joe Jackson’s Guide To NOT Reading by Tommy Greenwald is about a boy named Charlie who faces the possibly worst time of his life! Although he gets rid of one thing he hates the most reading. He buys his friend Timmy Ice cream sandwiches so he will read the book for him with notes so he doesn’t have to read at all, but, throughout the book some bad things happen to Charlie. He get caught, accidentally gets his friend Timmy out of a chance to play for a the AllStars lacrosse league, Along with many other things that made his life a lot worse than it needed to be. I liked this book because someone was suffering besides me, because I LIVE with my sister. I also really recommend this book because people can learn helpful tips to get out of reading, like watching the movie, reading the back cover and many other helpful elements. Watch the movie (if there is one) to find out more. (or if you like to punish yourself read the book)
