I do not particularly enjoy reading the books in this series. This is book #2 of the Origami Yoda series. The books are full of Star Wars references that I do not really follow. However, there are students that like the Star Wars series and would like the books.

On first glance, this is a shallow series about an outcast boy who becomes popular at school because he creates an oigami Yoda finger puppet who gives advice to junior high students.

With more thought and insight this is the story of how difficult junior high is to survive with its friendship issues, boy/girl problems, athority rebellions, and trying to just fit in. Dwight is an intelligent, kind boy who just doesn't believe enough in himself to be friends with the kids so he lets his puppet help him make friends. This is the story of how Dwight is almost kicked out of school for one of his Yoda predictions and how all his loyal friends went to the school board to defend him. In the end, his mom to decides to send him to the school he wanted to attend all along: the school his girlfriend goes to. Did he plan it??
