Goodreads Summary:

It is a dark time at Ralph McQuarrie Middle School. After suffering several Origami Yoda–related humiliations, Harvey manages to get Dwight suspended from school for being a “troublemaker.” Origami Yoda pleads with Tommy and Kellen to save Dwight by making a new case file—one that will show how Dwight’s presence benefits McQuarrie. With the help of their friends, Tommy and Kellen record cases such as “Origami Yoda and the Pre-eaten Wiener,” “Origami Yoda and the Exploding Pizza Bagels,” and “Origami Yoda and Wonderland: The Musical.” But Harvey and his Darth Paper puppet have a secret plan that could make Dwight’s suspension permanent . . .

With his proven knack for humorously exploring the intrigues, fads, and dramas of middle school, Tom Angleberger has crafted a worthy sequel to his breakout bestseller.

My Rating of this Book – 5 out of 5 Death Stars

My Review:

Tom Angleberger still has the Force on his side. Darth Paper Strikes Back is an awesome and gripping sequel to the The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. I couldn’t put the book down!

The Harvey/Darth Paper team was the perfect antagonist to Dwight/Origami Yoda. They used the power of the Dark Side to start turning things upside-down at Ralph McQuarrie Middle School. Actually, they used the power of words. That’s what I really love about these books! Even with Origami Yoda and Darth Paper, these books still focus on issues that middle grade students truly face.

The book also brought back all my favorite characters. Each provided their own wonderful and entertaining case to help explain the events happening at the Middle School. And the fun sketches made this book truly unique.

I would definitely recommend this series to anyone who is a kid at heart!
