I enjoyed the humor in this book. I am not an avid fan of Star Wars, but I am I do know enough references to understand some of the jokes in the books. I did find to be funnier than Darth Vader and Son. It's a quick read. It might...

A fifth-grader with severe facial deformities starts attending traditional school.  The narrator shifts about halfway through the book from the main character's perspective to the viewpoint of others around him.  The story is very real and poignant.  My son, who is entering sixth grade, also enjoyed this book.
