Star Wars: Jedi Academy, Return of the Padawan (Jedi Academy, #2. Other editions .. This is the second book in the Jedi Academy series by Jeffrey Brown. far away After surviving his first year at Jedi Academy, Roan Novachez thought his second y It's a good book but I think they should go on a adventure.
There are also plenty of funny standalone strips like 'Things Yoda Said this Week'. Yoda the headmaster of the school is. Backwards he talks. Despite his initial positive outlook, things go from bad to worse for Roan this school year. He manages to upset his best friend and the girl that he likes and even becomes the victim of cyber-bullying at the hands of his enemies Cyrus and Cronah.
His teacher, Mr Garfield, seems to criticise everything he does and worst of all, Roan become the prime suspect when the class pet goes missing. We feel Roan's pain; but can't help chuckling quietly as things get progressively more uncomfortable for our hero. The user-friendly format and comedy storyline are actually clever ways of tackling some quite sensitive issues. The story deals with the issue of cyberbullying , the fear of 'snitching' on a cheat and also looks at the dynamics of changing friendships, giving useful advice on how to be a good friend.
The book is never preachy with it's message, but gets the points across effectively. It may encourage children who are affected by these issues to open up to a parent or teacher without fear of reprisals. Return of the Padawan has darker subject matter than the first book and the jokes aren't quite as funny, but it is still a great read for Star Wars fans both young and old.
Hard-core fans will love both the direct and more subtle references to the film and will enjoy the challenge of counting how many they can spot. My highlight was the new chef, Gammy, a Gamorrean who serves up some interesting culinary creations. I would recommend it to people who like Star Wars and funny stories. View 1 comment.
Nov 02, Manuel R rated it really liked it Shelves: In Jedi Academy: Victor gets there and is very nervous. He meets somebody who he thinks is Sith, and another who he thinks is a determined Jedi.
Victor also tries to impress the girl if his dreams, and gets on some teachers bad side doing so. Will Victor make it through the year? Will Vi In Jedi Academy: Will Victor remain his bad grades, and reputation as known troublemaker?
Read the book to find out! I thought this book was pretty good. It had comedy and drama all over, which I absolutely adore. This book made me feel happy, scared, and sometimes made me want to face palm. I feel like people who like slight drama, action, and romance will like this book. People who like Diary of a Wimpy Kid or slight Star Wars But not where he destroys the spaceships and shoots people will praise this book. Same old Jedi Academy, different class of kids.
Victor is transferring mid year after a less than stellar time at the research based campus of the Jedi Academy. He seems to make a friend right away but has he really? His older sister pretends he doesn't exist at school and it just seems he can't catch a break in school or in love. What's a Padawan to do? If you loved the previous books you'll love this one too.

Jun 09, Annette rated it liked it Shelves: He encounters problems like bullies and a kid who seems to be nice but really just wants to use him as a pawn to get a girlfriend.
There are some pretty weird teachers. One of them is just trying to get Victor out because he decided he didn't like him. There were some teachers that are just plain old weird, like a Wookie is the teacher of soccer class.
There's a robot that teaches sports other than soccer, Yoda teaches the Force class, and there's a library class.
Victor is getting picked on a lot. At the end of the book he has to have a light sable doodle with the guy who wanted to use him as a pawn, because that guy locked Victor's friends up in a locker.
When Victor told him to let them go, the bad kid drew his lightsaber and said "you'll have to fight me. And the bad kid ended up getting expelled. I loved this book. I have already read the next three in the series.
My little sister loves them too. Unfortunately I thought these were chapter books, not comics. Oh well. This was such a quick and fun read! I loved this concept of a book, and it was greatly executed. It could have been longer, and I tended to see that I missed a lot of reactions from characters, the story would abruptly skip time.
But I had a good time reading this, not a chore at all! Dec 13, Jenny rated it liked it Shelves: Fun for Star Wars fans. Includes a variety of ways to tell the story: This book is amazing I can read it over and over again. This is basically a book about a kid who transferred from another school. He fails his grade at first, but he overcomes it.
I recommend this book because it can tell your kid how to face bullies. I hope you like this book.
Dec 13, Michelle Sonnier rated it really liked it. My 5 year old son brought this home from school as his school library book of the week. I read this with him over several nights as his bedtime story. It's quite a thrill to see him get captured by longer more complex narratives and develop a deeper love for story and reading. The book also has solid lessons without being preachy, so overall quite nice for a read along.
We'll probably be picking up the rest in the series. I was so sad when Star Wars Jedi Academy ended then again, I could imagine why, because that character's life at the academy was over , and then I heard that someone else would pick it up again. Of course I was worried, but on the other hand I just needed this in my life.
And I have to say that Jarrett J. Korsoczka did a magnificent job on making a new book in this series. The feeling is the same, the setting is perfectly kept, it just has new students, and a new story, a new year at our favouri I was so sad when Star Wars Jedi Academy ended then again, I could imagine why, because that character's life at the academy was over , and then I heard that someone else would pick it up again. The feeling is the same, the setting is perfectly kept, it just has new students, and a new story, a new year at our favourite school.
One of the two reasons why I haven't rated this one a 5 stars was because of Victor. I just didn't like how he acted at times, towards his sister, but also towards that kid in black robes, Artemis which sorry, I would almost call bullying.
Later on he becomes much much better, you can finally see him find out his place, see him make better friends, find out stuff about life. At the end of the book he really made a great character, and I wouldn't mind another book about this kid. Yes, Victor has really grown a lot. From an insecure kid, who picked the wrong friends, he turned to a nice person who is caring, friendly, and who doesn't stress out too much about school as he did in the beginning, I wish he had just gone to a teacher and talked to it.
He also showed courage near the end, and you could see how much the school has taught him. It gave him a place to call home the Drama Club. The other reason were the comics included in the newspapers, they were just blatant rip-offs from Peanuts and Garfield and maybe another one. At first I liked it, but then after one of them I just shook my head. I much prefer original comics than a bad rip-off. Don't get me wrong, I love a tribute, but this was just a copy-and-paste with Star Wars characters.
I loved all the various other characters well, with the exception of 2 characters, one the mean guy I just knew he was mean from the start, how Victor couldn't have seen it, I don't know , and the girl Victor is swooning over, sorry, I just didn't like her attitude, sure Victor is a bit stalkerish, but she was just an ice queen.
My 2 favourite characters from the side-cast would be Victor's sister she might look mean, and act a bit bossy, but you can see she has her heart at the right place, and she just wants to help out Victor , and the kid in the black robes, Artemis. The art is pretty good, though the quality varied per page and also per what kind of thing was it, was it comics, or an illustration, or a photograph. But I still liked it, the style fits perfectly with this series.
The book is just like all the others, it combines diary parts with comics and add some newspapers and other fun titbits in the mix. I would highly recommend this book to everyone, and I do hope we will be getting more books in this series.

May 24, Natalie rated it liked it Shelves: A few disclaimers: I'm not a Star Wars fan.
At all. I'm a huge geek about nearly every other geeky thing imaginable, but not Star Wars.
I even gave it another try last year. I tried watching the movies, made it through the first one and then wanted to stab myself through the eye trying to watch the second movie.
I think that second movie is one of my circles of hell. I remember watching the original Star Wars movies growing up, but I never really liked them that much. I even tried reading a St A few disclaimers: I even tried reading a Star Wars book, in case it appealed to me more in a literary fashion, but it was the most meh of all meh books. So, the point is, I really did try.
I have not read the first three books. It was random that I read this one and did so not realizing that the comics and characters were different than the first three books. Which my fifth graders really like. I didn't really want to read this book.
Keeping that in mind, it's amazing that I liked it as much as a I did. I thought the story was typical, but cute. I could see how Star Wars fans would really eat it up.
I know some people have hated this one since the style is so different, but I personally like this one better. After reading and finding out it was different authors, I compared it to the first three books, and I like the style of this one better. The Phantom Bully Star Wars: Jedi Academy 3.
