it was amazing

I think that this book comes across as a little gimiky because of the cover and the Star Wars tie ins, but it actually has a lot of depth in portraying issues kids deal with in a complex and multi dimensional way. There are few real bad guys, even the dark side is portrayed as still having good in it. There are bullies and there are kids that don't really fit in, but there is good in everyone. I think the presence or lack of presence of parents in this book is interesting, and maybe will be explored in later books. Even though this is a sequel, I think that it just as strong, if not stronger.

My one complaint is this: towards the end the paper goes darker and is black text on grey paper, and is somewhat hard to read. But I'm old, so maybe kids wont mind as much.
