    A Pulitzer Prize-winning author draws on his own experiences in journalism to create a unique and highly readable book about students who run a school newspaper called the Slash. Sixth graders Adam and Jennifer, with the help of an over-achieving third grader named Phoebe, pound the pavement to get their scoops. The laughs are real, and so is a major cover-up that involves a memorial gift to the school that is supposed to benefit the students. Only Adam can uncover the truth, and his finger is pointing right at the principal. Full of laughs and insights about human nature, this is a must-read for anyone interested in working on a school newspaper or going into journalism.
