"My whole life I planned on going to pilot school like the rest of my friends--then I got rejected! Along came a little green guy named Yoda who invited me to Jedi Academy. Now I'm at a school with aliens, robots, and lightsaber-wielding bullies who can lift things with their minds! How am I supposed to compete with that? As if starting middle school wasn't hard enough ..." The story of Roan Novachez, Jedi Academy student, is told through comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. This incredible, original story from author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school ... in a galaxy far, far away.

Roan Novachez wants to go to the Pilot Academy more than anything! Then he doesn’t get accepted! Roan thinks his only option is to go to the Tatooine Agriculture Academy to study plants, but Roan is suddenly accepted into the Jedi Academy. Once Roan starts at the Jedi Academy though, he feels like he’ll never catch up with his classmates. Will Roan ever learn to use the Force? Is he doomed to attend “Plant School” like he thought? Jeffrey Brown tells this funny, fast-paced story through diary entries and comic book pages. Kids will love this new Star Wars story with a hero they can relate to.
