Amazon Says: New York Times bestselling author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown takes readers to a middle school in a galaxy far, far away....

That is, until now...

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. less...
