Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6–9—This third story about the middle school investigative reporter and his coeditor, Jennifer, is a topical, timely, and totally entertaining read. With the Harris Elementary/Middle School paper, the Slash, recently banned as a school-sponsored publication thanks to a powerful local family, the pair look for other ways to keep it afloat. To this end, they enlist the support of the Ameche brothers, two precocious, streetsmart, and wisecracking entrepreneurs who sell enough ads to launch a privately funded print run and to build an accompanying Web site. Unfortunately, just as the coeditors and their staff begin unearthing juicy scandals—a state testing scam, a class presidential candidate trading votes for free music downloads, and a local bicycle-robbery ring—it becomes plain that the Ameche brothers, while great salesmen, need to be brought up to speed in terms of understanding "the wall" that separates commerce from ethical journalism. Ultimately, it is Ma Ameche, a prizewinning tomato grower and flea-market portrait artist—and one of a small but significant cast of sympathetic adult figures—who both helps instruct her errant sons and tries to keep the Slash viable. The novel is packed with memorable characters, breezy laughs, a bit of romance, and heart-tugging quandaries that deftly point up the real-life matters that have turned genuine, honest journalism into an endangered species.—Jeffrey Hastings, Highlander Way Middle School, Howell, MI END

Format: Hardcover
Adam Canfield is the star reporter/co-editor of his school newspaper The
Slash.The Slash was shut down and they're trying to put it out by them selves.
The last reporter is a story of adventure and a touch of romance through out the
whole book. you won't want to put it down from cover to cover. It's like a movie
in your mind, you can picture everything that the author explains in this number
one choice book.

I love this book and I think a lot of other people would like
it also. The characters are likable, and easy to relate to. This is a top book and
easily makes my top ten books. A reason I recommend this book for others is the
plot is clear and understandable. Winerip uses a clear writing style that is easy to
follow.

My 8 year old really loves these books. I hope more are added to the series or he finds something else he likes as much when he is done with these!
