"Between laughs, readers will be prompted to think Ñ about what constitutes truth, how the media massages it, and the importance of ethics, fairness, and getting the facts right." Ñ PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)
Adam Canfield has to be the most overprogrammed middle-school student in America. So when super-organized Jennifer coaxes him to be coeditor of their school newspaper, THE SLASH, he wonders if heÕs made a big mistake. But when a third-graderÕs article leads to a big scoop, Adam and his fellow junior journalists rise to the challenge of receiving their principalÕs wrath to uncover some scandalous secrets. From a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and NEW YORK TIMES columnist comes a funny, inspiring debut that sneaks in some lessons on personal integrity Ñ and captures the rush thatÕs connected to the breaking of a really great story.
