Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Extra Credit's main character is Charlie Joe, a non reader who loves his dogs and video games. The story is in his middle school, his home, and another location, but it would be a spoiler to say. In the beginning, Charlie's schemes of reading none of the assigned books are finally found out, and if he dosn't get straight A's in the last quarter, he wil have to go to a summer camp all about reading. Charlie is determined to get straight A's, but regular schoolwork wont be enough. He decides to get all the extra credit he can get. Even with the extra credit, Charlie is not the most behaved student. Will he get sent to the summer camp? Read to find out. I loved this book because its one of the books in the Charlie Joe Jackson series, which i love. The book also gives many tips to getting extra credit, which some may be just for humor, but sometimes there more fun then the actual book. I reccomend this book to everyone who can read it, and well, i guess if some people are in need of extra credit, this would help. ( )

In this second novel Charlie Joe learns the joy/despair of extra credit work. Faced with a summer of reading camp, Charlie Joe embarks on a quest to get straight A's, using all his wit, time and his friends. What follows is pure Charlie Joe - not everything goes according to plan. Again this was so cleverly written, the characters are all fantastic and you fall in love with them a little more, and the story will keep you surprised all the way to the end. ( )
