With Dwight attending Tippett Academy this semester, the kids
of McQuarrie Middle School are on their ownno Origami Yoda to give
advice and help them navigate the treacherous waters of middle
school. Then Sara gets a gift she says is from Dwighta paper
fortune-teller in the form of Chewbacca. It's a Fortune Wookiee,
and it seems to give advice that's just as good as Yoda'seven if,
in the hands of the girls, it seems too preoccupied with romance.
In the meantime, Dwight is fitting in a little too well at Tippett.
Has the unimaginable happened? Has Dwight become normal? It's up to
his old friends at McQuarrie to remind their kooky friend that it's
in his weirdness that his greatness lies.
With his proven knack for humorously exploring the intrigues,
fads, and dramas of middle school, Tom Angleberger has crafted a
worthy follow-up to his breakout bestsellers The Strange Case
of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back.
Praise for The Secret of the Fortune
"Angleberger's third in the series continues the fun. A chorus of
spot-on middle school voices and plenty of laughs are wrapped
around this tale of friendship and seasoned with Star Wars
Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Tom Angleberger offers a hilarious third book in his best-selling
series starring origami Star Wars characters.
Angleberger's grasp of middle-school emotions, humor and behavior
is spot-on, and parents who want to get a sense of what it's like
be a preteen these days might consider reading this book. But
you''ll likely have to pry it out of your young reader's hands
