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.

I read this book because I wanted to talk about it with my son and the young people who come to the Library. The story was well planned out. The author did show the emotions of the Middle School age person. I did not enjoy that Roan was bullied, but he handled it well. I will read the other books in this series. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0545505178, Hardcover)

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.

Now I'm at a school with aliens, robots, and lightsaber-wielding bullies who can lift things with their minds! How am I supposed to compete with that? As if starting middle school wasn't hard enough..." The story of Roan Novachez, Jedi Academy student, is told through comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. This incredible, original story from author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school ... in a galaxy far, far away.… (more)
