Review: Rebel In The Ranks by Jason Fry

Review: Star Wars: Rebel In The Ranks by Jason Fry (or, The Swimsuit Model Edition)

I have a confession to make: I don’t generally have a high opinion of children’s or young adult books. This is silly for lots of reasons, but maybe now isn’t the right time to go into that. Actually, just briefly: it really doesn’t matter if something you like is high art or not. The only thing that truly matters is whether you like it. At least, this is what I tell myself as I watch the new Thunderbirds series.

I've never been more excited to see a lack of facial expressions in a TV show.

This book, “Rebel in the Ranks,” written by Jason Fry, published by Egmont, and second in the Servants of the Empire series, does just that. Wow, that’s a long title! So without further ado, here’s the review. Hey, that rhymed! Aww, I ruined it.
