Plus, things at Jedi Academy are... weird. After last year's security breach, Principal Marr has been demoted and replaced with Commander ZC-04, a big, scary droid. There's a curfew, new regulations, and everyone is on edge. But when Victor and his friends dig a little deeper into the changes at the school, they find that there's a lot more to this story than the droids want to admit! It's an all-new, out-of-this-world Jedi Academy adventure as The Principal Strikes Back!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is related to the Star Wars franchise and it takes place in a school called Jedi Academy. The antagonist of the story is the principal, Commandeer ZC-06 who happens to be a loud mouth droid. The students are suffering because of this mean new Principal. One student named Victor Starspeeder believes that something is off at the school and with the help of his friends, he wants to find out what. Some of the main characters include Elara, a friend who just happens to be in love with him, Artemis a book loving friend, and last and possibly least according to Victor, Mr. Zephyr the meanest teacher in school. This is a fiction book, and it is an easy read that is geared towards kids. I give it 3 stars because it didn’t feel as full to me. This is most likely because I have not read other books in the series and because I haven’t watched many Star Wars movies. I believe if you did watch Star Wars and read other books in the series, that this will be a great book for you. However, if you haven’t read any of the other books, you will be a little lost.
