From the Publisher
First Line "All right," Jennifer was saying. "Ideas, ideas, and ideas. For the October issue. First issue of the new school year."
Annotation Wealthy and sheltered, suburban middle schoolers Adam and Jennifer enter the complex world of adults as local politics, corruption, and prejudice collide when the two investigate a story for their school paper, the Slash. As coeditors, Adam, so overwhelmed by activities that his daily to-do list is two feet long, and Jennifer, always organized and obsessively editorial, are in charge of a bevy of young reporters. Phoebe, a smart, plucky third grader, is determined to get a story of her own, and unwittingly leads them straight into scandal with her innocent piece about Eddie the janitor. Fast-paced and humorous, this coming-of-age story is sure to inspire blossoming reporters.
Editors Note While serving as co-editors of their school newspaper, middle-schoolers Adam and Jennifer uncover fraud and corruption in their school and in the city's government.
