This incredible, original story captures all of the humour, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school — all told through one boy's comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. The setting? A galaxy far, far away . . .

Roan's one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his older brother, father, and grandfather. But just as Roan is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot School, he is invited to attend Jedi Academy — a school that he didn't apply to and only recruits children when they are just a few years old. That is, until now.

This inventive novel follows Roan's first year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed. 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.

Hardcover illustrated novel containing 160 pages.

This paperback edition features extra content including deleted scenes from book one, a chat with Soman Chainani, and a sneak peek at The School for Good and Evil #3: The Last Ever After! In the New York Times bestselling sequel to Soman Chainani's debut, The School for Good and Evil, Sophie and Agatha are back in Gavaldon, living out their Happily Ever After, but life isn't quite the fairy tale they expected. When Agatha wishes she'd chosen a different Happy Ending, she accidentally reopens the gates to the School for Good and Evil, and the girls find that the world they knew has changed. Witches and princesses reside at the School for Girls, where they've been inspired to live a life without princes, while Tedros and the boys are camping in Evil's old towers. A war is brewing between the schools, but can Agatha and Sophie restore the peace? Can Sophie stay good with Tedros on the hunt? And whose heart does Agatha's belong to—her best friend or her prince? Soman Chainani has created a spectacular world that Newbery Medal-winning author Ann M. Martin calls "a fairy tale like no other, complete with romance, magic, humor, and a riddle that will keep you turning pages until the end."

The Ghastly McNastys are the ghastliest, nastiest pirates ever to sail the seven seas. The only thing they love more than making people walk the plank into shark-infested waters is treasure. So when a treasure map is found in the sleepy village of Little Snoring, the pirate twins are on the hunt. But Tat and Hetty – two cleaver local kids – are also searching for the lost treasure. And they aren’t going to let two hornswoggling pirates get in their way.
