It''s time to return to middle school in a galaxy far, far away . . . .

After surviving his first year at Jedi Academy, Roan Novachez thought his second year would be a breeze. He couldn''t have been more wrong. Roan feels like he''s drifting apart from his friends, and it''s only made worse when Roan discovers he''s not the amazing pilot he thought he''d be. When the school bullies take him under their wing, he decides they aren''t so bad after all - or are they?

This year, Roan will have to face alien poetry tests, menacing robots, food fights, flight simulation class, online bullies, more lightsaber duels, and worst of all . . . a girl who is mad at him.

This incredible, original story captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school - all told through one boy''s comics, journal entries, letters, sketches, e-mails, and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even Better Than the First I've really been looking forward to this sequel ever since I finished the first book. I'd say this one is probably even better than the first because rather than just being a story of events in the life of a first year away at school, this volume actually has a plot. Roan spends the year having a misunderstanding with his closest friends making them grow apart and not really speaking to each other all year. By virtue of being assigned to team up with them for a class project he finds himself with the bully/bad apple kids and starts joining their group feeling good belonging to this "cool" but troublesome clique. They are really only using him though because he is smart and it gives them an in on making it easier to tease the "good" kids. So overall this is a story of friendship and a good read for that. The set up is the same as last time though I'd classify it as a graphic novel as there are probably more classic panel/bubble pages than other forms such as: journal entries, homework pages, school posters, school newsletter, class schedules, report cards, etc. It will appeal to "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" fans but is also out to entertain Star Wars fans as well.
