Victor Starspeeder’s adventures continue in the newest volume of Star Wars: Jedi Academy!

Victor is back at Jedi Academy and he truly defines the definition of sophomore, specifically a sophomore in a slump. He was excited about Drama Club and hoped to get the lead in this year’s musical . . . But his best friend, Artemis, got the role. On top of that his sister, Christina, is getting ready to graduate from Jedi Academy. She’s always taken care of him, and Victor is lost now that she’s not around as much. Can Victor roll with the (force) punches? Or will he revert to his old ways and go back to being the class clown?
