The main character dreams of attending pilot school, and is assigned to Jedi Academy, instead. At his school away from home, new challenges he must face.
I liked this book a lot more than I expected - there was far more character development in a book that I thought would mainly contain cartoon drawings of spaceships. There is a Harry Potter-esque sense of meeting new people and attending various space classes, and it keeps the human challenge about making friends, competing in contests, and learning the ropes in a new environment. Besides, there are cartoon drawings of spaceships, so that's a bonus.
The best discussion questions, of course, are generated by and contemplated by readers. These questions are designed to avoid major spoilers about the book, and to provide a starting point for teachers, parents, and student reading groups.
