Return of the Padawan

Series: Star Wars: Jedi Academy (Book #2)
by Jeffrey Brown Illustrated by Jeffrey Brown

Author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown returns in the highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller Star Wars: Jedi Academy!

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.
