Darth Paper Strikes Back, Tom Angleberger

 I just finished the sequel to The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, which I blogged about a while ago. This book finds Dwight, Origami Yoda's keeper, in serious trouble. He's up for expulsion from McQuarrie Middle School for "threatening" a cheerleader (which turns out to just be a misunderstanding) and a string of other events that are, well, misunderstood. His troubles all began when evil classmate Harvey began bringing an origami Darth Vader - "Darth Paper" - to school. It seems that Harvey is truly the one behind Dwight's demise.

So, this novel finds Tommy and the gang on a mission to plea Dwight's case with the school board by documenting all of the well-intentioned, kind things that Dwight and Origami Yoda have done for their classmates. 

Written in the same style and with the same humor as before, I enjoyed Darth Paper just as much as Origami Yoda. This book gives you enough background that you don't need to have read the first one to understand it, but I'd definitely recommend reading Origami Yoda first, just because it's a good book!
