Jedi Academy by Jeffery Brown is a book with action, excitement, and humor. It all starts off with a boy named Roan who has dreamed of going to pilot school his whole life. Then, he gets a letter in the mail saying he was rejected. Next, a little green dude named Yoda invites Roan to come to Jedi Academy, a school that most of the kids there have been at their whole life. When he gets there, he meets some bullies and some friends. He also meets Yoda for the first time and is a little surprised by his appearance. Roan thinks he might be a little senile because he talks backwards. But he likes him anyways. From the very beginning, Jedi Academy is bad for Roan. He shows up late for class, and can’t do anything the other kids can with the force. Things at school start to pick up. He starts to become popular because of his art skills, and goes on a field trip he really likes. He is actually starting to like school. Cyrus and the other bullies still pick on him, but he has lots of good friends with him. Lots of adventures follow him, like an explosive science fair and a violent dodge ball game. He also might have just a little crush on a girl. But, the final exams are coming up, and he can barely do anything with the force. When they walk into class, they see a circle of humongous rocks. Master Yoda tells them that they will have to lift them using the force. Everyone is succeeding, and lifting the rocks off the ground. Roan is up last. He steps up to the front of the class, gulps, and concentrates. Then…

Overall, I would give this book a 9.5 out of 10 stars. It is in a sort of diary form, with words, pictures, and comic strips. This makes it very engaging, but it also makes it a little bit confusing. Everyone should read this book, and everyone who reads it will love it. You do not need to know anything about Star Wars to read this book, so you have no excuse not to read it. At 158 pages, it is not very long, but is still exciting. I would strongly recommend reading Jedi Academy, and you will not be disappointed.
