Darth Paper Strikes Back by Tom Angleberger

Harvey, upset when his Darth Paper finger puppet brings humiliation, gets Dwight suspended, but Origami Yoda asks Tommy and Kellan, now in seventh grade, to make a new casefile to persuade the School Board to reinstate Dwight.


A pretty short time ago, in a middle school not far away … there was a sixth grader named Dwight. He’s sort of hard to explain. I mean, on the one hand, he digs holes for no apparent reason and sits in them. On the other hand, he makes a great origami Yoda that gives AMAZING advice. Everybody used to not like Dwight, but now that he’s made McQuarrie Middle School better with Yoda, they appreciate him. Then, Harvey makes Darth Paper and they bring doom to the peaceful galaxy of the school by getting Dwight (and Yoda) kicked out.
I thought this book was unique because it was set up as a case file with different stories. It was funny and had great, believable, heartwarming characters. I was sad when I finished it! Dwight was extra-special because of all his different traits and by the fact that he’s so different from Yoda. All these things made Darth Paper Strikes Back probably my second favorite book in 2011!-Maggie
