Roan's dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy. 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...

In Roan's first year at Jedi Academy, 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.

    Comments about Jedi Academy:

    Bought this for our 7 year old son who is not a keen reader but this one he really enjoyed and picks it up to read it on his own without prompting. There is a balanced mix of text and comic sections for him to read so it doesn't feel overwhelming. The Star Wars/Jedi theme helped too as he's a fan of the genre. We are buying the next one in the series.

        "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Roan Novachez thought he was destined to attend Pilot Academy Middle School, just as his older brother and father did. His dreams are crushed when he is rejected by Pilot Academy and accepted into a sketchy new school called Coruscant Jedi Academy. Roan has no idea what to expect at the academy and feels pressured after learning he is the oldest student ever to enroll there. Confused and struggling to keep up, Roan tries to fly under the radar and passes the time drawing comics of his daily life at his strange boarding school. This fantastic chapter book by Brown will satisfy those who loved his previous Star Wars works, "Darth Vader and Son "(2012) and "Vader's Little""Princess "(2013). With its mix of comics and text, it will also appeal to fans of Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants hybrid books. On a deeper level, this book tackles serious issues like failure, bullying, friendship, determination, and starting a new school in a fun and funny way. Perhaps best of all, it encourages readers to practice creativity and to start their own journals." - "Booklist "starred review
