Adam Canfield of the Slash (Adam Canfield of the Slash)by Michael Winerip
Synopses & Reviews
"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 hes made a big mistake. But when a third-graders article leads to a big scoop, Adam and his fellow junior journalists rise to the challenge of receiving their principals 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 thats connected to the breaking of a really great story.
In this terrific debut, the Pulitzer Prize-winning "New York Times" columnist introduces a charming cast of middle-school newspaper reporters that stands up to authority to expose a school scandal.
About the Author
Michael Winerip says that many of the stories in ADAM CANFIELD OF THE SLASH are based on his own experiences working as a newspaper reporter for thirty years. "I wanted to write a book about kids with super powers," he says. "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." Michael Winerip is a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for the NEW YORK TIMES and is also the author of an award-winning nonfiction book for adults, 9 HIGHLAND ROAD. He lives with his wife and four children, who provide fresh material for his writing daily. ADAM CANFIELD OF THE SLASH is his first book for young readers.
