    1. What I read so far was that there is a kid named Adam Canfield and he is just a typical teen. He has friends, and he is a newspaper reporter and he gets a big prize for nothing. His mother end up telling him and teaching him life lessons. If you like Realistic Fiction then you should read this book it's very interesting and existing in my perspective.


    2. From a journalism standpoint, I really admired the story for its discussion of journalism ethics and the reliability of news from sources funded by advertisers.



    3. I’m so glad that I was able to get over my Reading Funk after reading this book. As always I’m happy to have found a book myself and the price of it didn’t hurt either. In all honesty this book is worth more than $3.99. It’s truly one of the best Children’s books that I have read in a while.As the synopsis suggests, Adam Canfield: The Last Reporter follows the adventures of Adam Canfield, an overprogrammed middle school reporter. This book is the 3rd installment in the Adam Canfield of [...]


    4. Third book in the Adam Canfield series (and I think, last) and it concludes the school year, which began in the first book. We really loved this series, and I hope Michael Winerip decides to write more juvenile literature. The book tells a delightful story and is full of real life details of the stresses and complexities of middle school life. This third book adds a touch of budding romance as the coeditors of the newspaper, Adam and Jennifer, work to discover the status of their relationship. F [...]


    5. Early Middle School. Reporters, ethics, social responsibility and self sufficency are the main themes of this book in the series. Adam and friends must try to keep the school paper going even thought their arch enemy has managed to pull the funds and official teacher support out from under them. Middle and Elementary students must find funding, do their research, and locate someone willing to print their paper without official help from school educators. Questions addressed include: Why are stud [...]


    6. I think this is my favorite book of the series. Winerip needs to write another one! Adam and Jennifer are busy with trying to get the Slash back up and running while they are investigating higher state test scores and a faulty student election. All this is happening in the midst of Adam's bike being stolen, more problems with Phoebe, working with the Ameche brothers, and trying to figure out their relationship with each other. Oh yeah - here's my favorite quote: "brarians seem quiet, but they're [...]


    7. Book 3 in this great series. Less edge-of-your-seat action, but more humor and a touch of romance. Adam and Jennifer have a falling out over their attempts to get The Slash back off the ground. This time, they take on state testing. Readers will enjoy new characters, the Ameche brothers, and their equally memorable mother. 6th grade and up.


    8. 4th grade and upAdam is the co-editor of SLASH. There is lots of news to report. The biggest mystery of all is Jennifer the other co-editor. Why is she moody lately, and why does it make Adam so upset?This witty book is perfect for any kid who wants a bit of a romance and some action/mystery to drive the plot.


    9. Gosh, I love this series. It's a compelling story; unique, funny, and informed by little touches that demonstrate what a great observer Winerip is. If anything this book seems directed at 5th and 6th graders, while I thought the previous two were aimed a bit older. Anyway, a great read and a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.


    10. Last book in series (Adam Canfield of the Slash & Adam Canfield, watch your back!)Middle-school reporters raise money to put out newspaper banned from school. Good depiction of thoughts & feelings from male pov. Good lesson in ethical reporting.


    11. I am enjoying this book. It is a fast easy read. Nothing heavy. Although the reading level is fourth grade, the situation is junior high and it reminds us how amazingly capable of greatness young students are.


    12. This series is new to me. Even picking it up in the third book, I could get the whole story. I enjoyed the humor and the very resourceful kids. A few mild curses and a kiss at the end makes this a choice for more mature middle school readers.






    13. this is a book where you need to think about whats happeningere will be parts of the book where you need to think about whats going to happen.I reccomend this book.



    14. A major plot line in the book is suspiciously high standardized test scores. Be sure and read the Afterword by the author.



    15. I've really enjoyed this middle school series. Likeable, reasonably realistic characters, and some villainous adults add up to a fun mix. This (probably) last installment adds fledgling romance.
