Star Wars Jedi Academy #2: Return of the Padawan by Jeffrey Brown (Hardback)
I thought my second year at Jedi Academy would be a breeze, and it was...at first. I built an awesome robot, took a field trip to an ice planet, and avoided Gammy's alien cooking. But then things got all mixed-up!
Star pilot training was way harder than I expected, my best friends started ignoring me, and the class bullies are trying to lead me to the dark side--which actually looks fun. Just when I thought I had middle school all figured out...

"I'm no Star Wars nut, but I grew up in the 80s, so I've seen the original trilogy. It's good. This book (and truthfully all of Jeffrey Brown's Star Wars books) is so good. It's smart, funny, has positive messages, and is a really fun story. I've recommended the first one to both kids and adults while working at the Children's Desk at the library. I'm happy this seems to be an ongoing series."
"With the premiere of the new movie, I couldn't think of a better time to read this book.
Roan Novachez starts his second year at the Jedi Academy, a school that not only contains Master Yoda as a teacher, but also trains the best Jedi Pilots in a galaxy far far away. Despite the science-fiction background, Brown gives us a realistic view of adolescence with the stress of online bullying (kids get Holobook aka facebook) and the eventual disagreements in a group of best friends. Prepare for an inclination toward the dark side."
