New York Times bestselling author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown takes readers to a middle school in a galaxy far, far away....This incredible, original story captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school--all told through one boy's comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. The setting? A galaxy far, far away...Roan's one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his older brother, father, and grandfather. But just as Roan is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot School, he is invited to attend Jedi Academy--a school that he didn't apply to and only recruits children when they are just a few years old. That is, until now...This inventive novel follows Roan's first year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed. Oh, and he learns other important things too--like how to make a baking soda volcano, fence with a lightsaber, slow dance with a girl, and lift boulders with the Force.

A children fantasy book living in a world with Jedi and use of the force. Besides that, everything else seems like ordinary grade school. Which is the nice part of it. I think it is kind of fun to imitate the teachers being Jedi instead of wage slaves trying to get through the day. The rela...
3 Stars/ Abandoned, Borrow Self purchase I’m doing this a bit backwards. I read the 2nd one via netgalley 6 months ago and then purchased the first one which I’m only getting around to reading now. I’m giving this a 3 star rating even though I’m technically not finishing it. It was cute, but f...
Awww. This is a backstory to Star Wars that many fans and non-fans can enjoy. Luke wants to be a pilot, but ends up in Jedi Academy instead, circa age 11. So, you know, Space Potter, kind of.Fun stuff, and realistic about the difficulties of being away from home and in a new school.Library copy.
