"This refreshingly poignant story deftly weaves topics such as grieving, making friends, and moving with highly relevant discussions about bias and opinion in journalism. It is inspiring and informative for young people who are interested in the craft of news reporting, without being overly technical.... A captivating and touching story that addresses issues in news media and life effortlessly, while engaging readers with a fast-paced mystery."
— School Library Journal

"Beth Vrabel's The Newspaper Club is a mystery and a friendship story rolled into one; at its climax, both combine for a conclusion that's remarkably profound. It's also an affectionate account of the newspaper business, complete with a glossary of newspaper terms for budding cub reporters."
