"Between laughs, readers will be prompted to think — about what constitutes truth, how the media massages it, and the importance of ethics, fairness, and getting the facts right." — 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 he’s made a big mistake. But when a third-grader’s article leads to a big scoop, Adam and his fellow junior journalists rise to the challenge of receiving their principal’s 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 — and captures the rush that’s connected to the breaking of a really great story.

From the Publisher:

Late for math club, late for jazz band, late for soccer-- Adam Canfield has to be the most overscheduled middle-school student in America. So when super-organized Jennifer coaxes him to be coeditor of the Slash -- Harris Elementary/Middle School's student newspaper--Adam wonders if he's made a big mistake. Not only do editors get stuck with assigning stories (like an investigative report on the edibility of cafeteria food), but they also have to deal with annoying third-graders like Phoebe, always pushing for a front-page slot. But when Phoebe's article about Eddie the janitor leads to a much bigger scoop--an eccentric woman's mysterious bequest to the school--Adam and Jennifer rise to the challenge, risking their principal's wrath to uncover shocking secrets. Along with a charming cast of characters and plenty of kid-friendly humor, New York Times education columnist Michael Winerip sneaks in some important lessons about truth, cover-ups, personal integrity! , and the rush that comes from breaking a really good story.

From the Author:

I wanted to write a book about kids with super powers. So I gave Adam lots of notebooks and pens and a newspaper that would print his stories. Next, I threw in a few suspicious characters, then stood back and waited for some magic stuff to happen.
