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 he s made a big mistake. But when a third-grader s article leads to a big scoop, Adam and his fellow junior journalists rise to the challenge of receiving their principal s wrath to uncover some scandalous secrets.
