Did you watch the first episode of Charles in Charge and think, "Whoa, what?! This thing just starts right off with JOKES AND HILARITY! I demand more back story! Who is this 'Charles'? And what was the exact process by which he came to be in charge?" If so, this prequel novelization is the book for you!

Thrill as Charles first arrives at Crawford College* and learns his financial aid has fallen through! Marvel as he goes on a job interview to become an au pair for the Pembroke family! Laugh as he

these are FACTS about this novel, i swear to god:

1. early on, charles is a bit disappointed by the look of his california college because--whoa!--he had pictured something a bit more Brideshead Revisited.

2. though an extremely conscientious student, charles takes time out from studying to read "the new Vonnegut."

It was a fast read. Especially if you have already see the pilot to the television show. Totally reminded me of the kind of books I read as a fifth grader.
