What do you do if you’re beginning eighth grade and
things seem…well, boring? What if you want something new
to tackle, an unusual project, an exciting challenge?
If you’re Shani Baum — lively, talented, and, above all,
efficient — you come up with a super idea: you start a school
At first, things couldn’t be better. Everyone loves the idea,
and Shani even gets her own newsroom! But then Raizy Segal
— shy, quiet Raizy, whom nobody really knows — is appointed
assistant editor. And to make things worse, Raizy claims that
Shani’s very first scoop shouldn’t even be allowed in her own
paper! But the editor is always right…or is she?
Shani’s Scoop is the first in a best-selling series of books,
now back in print, that follows the adventures of the B.Y. Times
staff: Shani; Raizy; Pinky and Chinky, the identical twins; Batya,
the Israeli who always wears a smile; and Nechama, whose
temper is as fiery as her hair.
Come and join the fun!
