Adam Canfield and the Slash by Michael Winerip

Late for math club, late for jazz band, late for soccer – Adam Canfield has to be the most over programmed middle-school student in America. So when super-organized Jennifer coaxes him to be coeditor of the Slash – Harris Elementary/Middle School’s student newspaper – he wonders if he’s made a big mistake. Not only do editors get stuck with assigning stories (like an investigative report on the edibility of cafeteria food), but they also have to deal with annoying third graders like Phoebe, always pushing for a front-page slot. But when Phoebe’s article on Eddie the janitor leads to a much bigger scoop – an eccentric woman’s mysterious gift to the school – Adam and Jennifer rise to the challenge, risking their principal’s wrath to uncover some shocking secrets.
