Charlie Joe Jackson is smart, friendly, funny, and a bit goofy, not to mention a total slacker (and he knows it), AND he doesn't like to read. And he has been able to avoid it by having his friend Timmy read all his books for him in exchange for an ice cream sandwich. But Timmy's price has gone up and then Charlie Joe gets discovered. This is a funny tale of a reluctant reader surrounded by and friends with lots of passionate readers, which has great advice on how to not read and how to choose books. What I found funny about this book was that it was never clear why he didn't like to read. I'm intrigued to find out what students think of it.
