4.0 out of 5 stars New Story, Fun Illustrations, September 9, 2013
This review is from: Star Wars: Jedi Academy (Hardcover)
Roan wants to go to Pilot Academy. He has dreamed of it his whole life. When he doesn't get in, he is sure he will be heading to Plant School. Then, unexpectedly, he gets accepted into the Jedi Academy. This is odd because he is much older than most kids that are first years there. The Force must be strong with that one! This is a fun tale of going off to a new (middle) school, making friends, dealing with not being exactly where you want to be, but learning to hopefully love it.

Fans of Star Wars will like this completely original story. There are many detailed drawings, one of the joys of this author/illustrator. There are fun extras throughout the book like letters from his brother and newsletters at school that will keep the kids reading it entertained. Thankfully there is plenty of Yoda, as observed from a middle school child. 8-year-olds might get a little bored with this one, but die-hard Star Wars fans well into middle school will breeze through it. Hopefully they will learn to be themselves and enjoy the life they have while they are at it.
