Adam Canfield of the Slash

author: Michael Winerip

series name:
Adam Canfield of the Slash

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 heís made a big mistake. But when a third-graderís article leads to a big scoop, Adam and his fellow junior journalists rise to the challenge of receiving their principalís 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 ó and captures the rush thatís connected to the breaking of a really great story.

"Between laughs, readers will be prompted to think ó about what constitutes truth, how the media massages it, and the importance of ethics, fairness, and getting the facts right." ó Publishers Weekly (starred review)
