Star Wars: Jedi Academy (Paperback)
My son and I had a blast with this book. Jeffrey Brown introduces us to Roan, a middle grade student who wanted to go to pilot academy, but instead is “stuck” with the Jedi academy. The book feels like a mix between Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Harry Potter, set in the Star Wars universe. The story is part comic book and part journal and tells of Roan’s 1st year at the academy with all the ups and downs of a new kid at a new school. It is a very cool combination with fun illustrations and would be excellent for any 8-12 year old.
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.
