Darth Paper Invades JFDS!

Last October, you might have noticed students carrying a copy of The Strange Case of the Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger around school. It has kind of an odd title, yet Angleberger painted a rather accurate picture of the ups and downs of life in middle school. When one of their gang, Dwight, shows up to school with an origami Yoda puppet on his finger, and offers advice to his fellow students, Tommy, the narrator, sets out to prove whether Dwight’s Yoda-like advice worked. As each student chimes in, we find that Dwight, who was never one to appear too “with it,” actually provided sound advice to his peers. The sequel to Origami Yoda, Darth Paper Strikes Back, begins the following September, as Dwight and the gang are starting seventh grade. Tommy shares that they all thought this year would be perfect, as Dwight had helped move them from rarely noticed, to “semi-cool” status. Unfortunately, life doesn’t always work out the way we plan, and fellow seventh grader, Harvey, along with his Darth Paper,  is on a mission to make Dwight’s life miserable. Who will win, good or evil? Read it, you should.

Students interested in reading Darth Paper Strikes Back may sign up this week, October 17-21 in the Media Center. After school discussions begin next Tuesday, October 25, and run through Tuesday, November 15.

    That’s awesome how Harvey try’s to help save Dwight from going to a private school and he fails but alas at least he tried.
