The middle school years are rough, and there's an endless supply of books that make the case. Many of the top recent ones, such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Big Nate, The Dork Diaries, and The Strange Case of the Origami Yoda, use an informal journal format with plentiful sketches and simple illustrations. This is one such book, except it's not set in a realistic, contemporary school, it's set in a Jedi Academy. Roan has to deal with all the same situations and challenges as every other middle schooler, except his teachers have names like Yoda and his subjects include things like Basic Lifting with the Force. ----- Roan has always dreamed of getting away from his parents' farm on Tatooine by qualifying for Pilot Academy and becoming a hotshot star pilot. So he is crushed when he gets a rejection letter from the school. Then an acceptance letter shows up from Jedi Academy, whatever that is. Now, to avoid Agriculture Academy, he is leaving behind his friends, family, and dreams to study something he knows nothing about surrounded by people he doesn't know. He feels completely out of place and is sure he'll never fit in. Everything has gone wrong. ----- Packed full of relatable experiences, humor, and Star Wars references, this is a book that many a middle schooler will love.
