Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Growing UpCharlie Joe Jackson Series (Volume 6)
Tommy Greenwald; illustrations by J. P. Coovert
This hilarious final installment in the Charlie Joe Jackson series written by Tommy Greenwald and illustrated by J. P. Coovert is infused with nostalgia and just the right amount of chaos.
Yes! Graduation day is finally here!
Charlie Joe has been waiting for this moment his entire middle school career. This might even be the best day of his life. No more teachers! No more books! Just make it through the ceremony and he's free. But suddenly things around him are starting to change. Words like "responsibility" and "college prep" keep popping out of his friend's mouths. What happened to words like "fun" and "pool party"? And come to think of it, doesn't high school bring more teachers and more books? Maybe this whole growing up thing isn't such a good idea after all. Actually being a kid is pretty darn fun! Surely Charlie Joe can figure out a way to put the brakes on growing up-and fast!
With laugh-out-loud humor and quirky illustrations, this book is perfect for reluctant readers.

The Real Us
My name is Charlie Joe Jackson, and I used to hate reading.
Guess what? Now I hate it a little less. (Let’s keep that between us.)
I guess that’s what...
Praise for Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Growing Up
Praise for the Charlie Joe Jackson series:
"Snappy, sarcastic middle-school humor lifts this overlong book, and the spot drawings and occasional very short pithy paragraphs are a pleasant surprise. No middle schooler wants to face a month at summer enrichment camp, but many will enjoy watching Charlie Joe work harder than he has ever worked before to avoid it." —Kirkus Reviews on Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Extra Credit
"Reluctant readers . . . are the target audience here. All in all it’s a great little book . . . . This is definitely the book to hand those The Strange Case of Origami Yoda fans out there who are looking for more, and it’ll probably satisfy non-non-readers as well." —School Library Journal on Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading
"[S]lackers everywhere have a new, likable hero in Charlie Joe Jackson." —Kirkus Reviews on Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading
