From School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—In this third installment of the series, middle school student Roan Novachez is returning to the Jedi Academy for his final year of Padawan training. This year each student gets a Jedi mentor. Like his peers, Roan has to hone his Jedi skills, perform in a class talent show, and complete a Padawan Obstacle Challenge Trial and a Jedi Labyrinth Trial. Brown illustrates this story in the form of diary entries, which include newsletter snapshots, class schedules, report cards, notes, holomail, and holobook chat discussions. VERDICT Star Wars fans will enjoy this latest volume, especially when Roan challenges bully Cronah in a lightsaber duel. Recommended.—Lisa Gieskes, Richland County Public Library, Columbia, SC

As what Mr. Garfield would say: 'Hmph (Good job)'
To the author:
So Cyrus turned and be the good side, I thought he will still be a bully and bully Roan. Hmphf! And, hey, dude, I really like the labyrinth trial thingy and seeing Roan beat Cronah in a lightsaber match, like in the Jedi Academy. Cronah teased Roan and said he can't wait to beat Roan and watch him lose then became a cry baby. And, hey, dude, but now, Roan won him! Haha! Hmphf! Hmphf! Hmphf! Hmphf hmphf hmphf hmphf! Hmphhhhhhhhfffft! And, hey, dude, when will be another episode of Roan's jedi stories ?
In this book, Brown tells us what happen to Roan on his third and final year of middle school in the Jedi Academy. As in the previous installments, this book is written in the fashion of a black and white comic book with interlaced pages from Roan's personal diary to give us an insight to Roan's mind and other notes such as letters and pages from the Padawan Observer to flesh out the Roan's world. This layout makes it easy to read, being easy on the comic pages and a bit more challenging on the dairies section for young minds.
This time around we start with a Roan that have learned from his mistakes, but soon enough we learn that he is constantly bullied. So the challenge is constant through out the book, yet with the help of Roan's friends, even the challenge of a bully can be tolerated and eventually overcome. I can relate so much (sans the Jedi powers) that I just baffle how much Brown got right. And I love that the book didn't go too dark, when in many instances it could. We all need a ray of hope, and this book is just that.
The good thing is that this book is only 176 pages long. I was able to finished in two days, because I started with my little one. However, being this short is also a bad thing, because I want more. Hopefully, the message in the last pages becomes a promise for more.
PS. I have been trying to find a way to start my little on on the ways of the Force, and this was just what I was looking for. A good resource for Star Wars and those starting to read.
The bad thing is that it is only 176 pages long and I finished it in a few hours. So I could easily recommend this book for Star Wars fans and, frankly, for anyone who wants a chuckle with a good and simple story. On top of that, this is a book that you could easily pass to your little one
