Darth Paper Strikes Back

I read The Strange Case of Origami Yoda earlier this year after it made the Cybils list. I liked what Tom Angleberger was doing and was pretty happy when Darth Paper Strikes Back made it to the top of my library pile. Then I started reading and got very, very concerned.

I was rather happy with were Origami Yoda ended so when I opened the pages of Darth Paper and found out that no one was getting along and *gasp* it looked like someone was getting kicked out of school... I was not pleased. That's not how it's supposed to work!

But I kept reading and yes, Tom Angleberger knows what he's doing. Darth Paper wreaks havoc because duh, that's what the dark side does. It thrives on strife and chaos and hate so of course it's going to thrive in a middle school cafeteria. Brilliant!

A fun little book that would be a great choice for Dewey's 24hr Readathon.
