WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles of books we are eagerly anticipating.

Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Summer Vacation by Tommy Greenwald. 240 p. Roaring Brook Press, May 7, 2013. 9781596437579.

How can a librarian love a book about a boy who not only hates to read, but is willing to teach kids how to get out of assigned reading? Because it is hysterically funny, totally appealing to any reader, but especially reluctant readers and it appeals to the subversive side of me. Click here, here and here for my reviews of CJJ1, CJJ1 - the audio and CJJ2. I am constantly replacing my library's Charlie Joe books because they are always being stolen borrowed permanently. I haven't had a rash of book theft of this magnitude since The Percy Jackson Caper five years back.

I did a happy dance when I learned that Charlie Joe is returning in a third installment. And, get this, you can enter to win an arc! Follow this link to Mackidsblog, where you will need to follow another link to the form to enter. Hurry, the drawing is December 16.
