"Adam Canfield," said Mr. Brooks. "I need a word with you."

The teacher had his grade book open. He placed a sheet of paper under the row of boxes beside Adam’s name. "Notice anything?" asked Mr. Brooks.

Over half of Adam’s boxes had dots.

"Do you know what those dots are?" asked Mr. Brooks.

Adam was pretty sure he did, but was hoping against hope there was just the teeniest little chance they might be good dots.

"Class participation?" asked Adam.

"Tardiness," said Mr. Brooks. "We're three weeks into the school year,
Adam, and you’ve been late to my class ten times." It was true. Adam's row of boxes looked like it had caught the chicken pox.

He glanced out the door. Jennifer was waving frantically.

"I don't like to make too much of these things," said Mr. Brooks, especially with a good student, but—is there a problem, Adam?"

Was there a problem? Of course there was a problem. Adam was the most overprogrammed middle school student in America. He was on the verge of being enriched to death. The whole world plus Adam's parents were yelling at him to hurry up or he'd be late for his next activity. Late for baritone horn lesson, late for jazz band, late for marching band, late for the Math Olympiad club, late for the Quiz Bowl Gladiator meet, late for Geography Challenge, late for soccer, late for swimming, late for snowflake baseball, late for running club, and, yes, late for weekly rehearsals of the Say No to Drugs Community Players. No matter how hard Adam tried to concentrate on where he was supposed to be next, in the end he always seemed to be the late, late Adam Canfield.

And now, because he was getting yelled at by Mr. Brooks—his favorite teacher—for being late to World History, he was going to be late for the principal. Late for his meeting with Mrs. Marris! It was amazing how a few little problems could multiply and destroy a person.

Présentation de l'éditeur

"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 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. 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 that’s connected to the breaking of a really great story. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

STOP THE PRESSES -- And Put This Book On Page One 11 avril 2005
Par TruthNinja - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Mike Winerip may single-handedly save American journalism with this hilarious, suspenseful, deeply-satisfying story of elementary/middle school students discovering the joys -- and terrors -- of investigative reporting. Kids will adore this book and clamor for the sequel; some will be inspired to become real reporters (corrupt principals and corporate-TV toadies beware!) But it should also be irresistible to any grown-up who ever worked for a newspaper, laughed at "The Paper," or rooted for Woodward and Bernstein in "All the President's Men."

From a mom's viewpoint 18 août 2005
Par J. Reed - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
My 13-year-old who rarely enjoys reading could hardly put this book down. This is the equivalent of a rave review! It made him more interested in reporting--and he liked it so much he's asked the whole family to read it!

Chasing the Truth 15 mars 2005
Par Susan Ferraro - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Michael Winerip's wonderful and exciting story about a middle school-age reporter who is learning about his school, his friends, his town and himself is fun, smart, full of energy and thrills but without pretension or predicability. There are scenes that are laugh out loud funny, some hilarious characters who ring all too true, and issues about right and wrong, good and bad, that are really important. Just as good: even the bad guys have real personalities. Subtle social differences dictated by education, money, race and personal history unfold at an unforced pace. Among other things, readers will understand, reading "Adam Canfiled of the Slash," just why it is that a free press, when it is free, is so exciting, why it can make a great a positive difference in society, and why a true democracy needs it. Even better, readers will see that even kids can make a difference. Fortunately, Winerip never lets his large themes overwhelm or distract from his story, which is fun, engrossing and very satisfying.

A Great Book for the Whole Family 9 juillet 2005
Par Julie Gross - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I bought Adam Canfield of the Slash with the intention of reading it myself and then passing it on to my two teenage sons. Before I could get started, my 16-year-old grabbed it. When he looked very tired the next day, I asked him about the book. He told me that he stayed up most of the night in order to finish the whole book because he wanted to know what was going to happen at the end. He found it funny, interesting, irreverent and suspenseful.

My husband picked it up next. He doesn't usually read books written for kids, but he found this one had a great deal to offer adults. He especially liked the efficacious way the political and race relation themes ran throughout the book.

When my husband finished the book I finally got my chance with Adam Canfield. I throughly enjoyed it. There were times when I laughed out loud. There were parts of the book that helped me remember what it was like to be a kid. I was amazed that the author, a "grown-up" man, could write so well about what is actually going on in the minds of his young characters.

Finally, my 13 year-old son got to read it. He also loved it. He is the one in our family who is closest to Adam Canfield's age. The book felt very real to him. He told us that he thought that everything that happened in the book could actually happen to him and his friends in real life.

If you (or anyone in your family) want to read a funny, fabulous, insightful book about school age kids, who happen to be hard-working investigative reporters, then you should order this book today. You will not be dissapointed.

Entertained our 3 children for a long car ride--excellent 18 avril 2007
Par love to read - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
We had a long car trip planned so I picked up an audio tape of this book for the journey. Our 3 kids--13, 11, and 9--loved it. And my husband and I wouldn't let them listen unless we were there too. The kids laughed and got a sense of what it was to be a journalist. My husband and I (both involved in our local elementary/middle schools) loved the sub plot on testing in the modern era. Excellent for boys and girls and quite a range of ages.
