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.

    I listened to this book with my ten year old son. We both enjoyed it. Good strong characters of both genders. Written from young person (9-13 yrs) perspective. Honest narrative about overbooked lives, confusing feelings of romance, and other issues from their point of view.

    We rented this for a trip to Lake Placid, NY (5 1/2 hours) and this story lasted for most of the round trip. It was a great story, with likeable and believeable characters and subject matter that was not for babies and yet did not make the parents blush. It really held our 8 yr old's attention, but not as much for our 6 yr old. I think the abridged version would have been a better choice. The story simply seemed to drag on and on.

    Awesome. Well read and a great story for kids as well as adults. Very enjoyable without being overly sappy or juvenile.
