Summary

For years, Adam Canfield has been the number-one star reporter for the Harris Elementary/Middle School paper, the Slash. Nowadays he’s also the most overprogrammed kid in America. Gladiator quiz bowl, jazz band, statewide test prep class—he’s always running somewhere, and nine times out of ten, running late. When does a guy get time to just shoot some baskets anymore? 
 
Then his friend Jennifer talks him into being co-editor of the Slash. Between supervising know-it-all cub reporters and arguing with Principal Marris about which articles will “propel the Good Ship Harris forward,” Adam worries he might lose it altogether. But then a third grader delivers a scoop bigger than any of Adam’s career, and only Adam can dig deep enough to crack through a cover-up that will rock the very foundations of Harris itself. 
 
From Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Michael Winerip, here is a first novel that delivers the rush of the newsroom, the adrenaline of a reporter on the trail of a hot story, and some keen insights into human nature—all with a lot of laughs.
