What's your credit score?
CHARLIE JOE JACKSON'S GUIDE TO EXTRA CREDIT by Tommy Greenwald. Roaring Brook, 2012.
Charlie Joe Jackson appears destined to attend Camp Ritukbukke (read a book) due to his poor grades. He makes a deal with his parents and the school counselor: if he gets As in most of his classes, he can stay home and sleep late and enjoy the same summer plans as his pals. How to get the grades up? Extra credit is the answer. Before long, Charlie Joe is posing for the art teacher and serving on student council and even helping out on the school play. Wouldn't it have been easier simply to study and help his grades the old fashioned way? Not if you are Charlie Joe. This hilarious sequel to CHARLIE JOE JACKSON'S GUIDE TO NOT READING will be wildly popular. <452>
