In a galaxy far, far away…a geek was born. So begins the real-life hero’s journey of Jedi Knight wannabe Tony Pacitti. In this hilarious and heartfelt memoir, our hapless hero sees Star Wars for the first time at the age of seven–and is never the same again. The epic film becomes little Tony’s moral compass, mentor, even psychologist, helping him battle the Evil Empire wherever he finds it. He uses the Force to navigate the perils and pitfalls of childhood–from the bullies who badger him at the bus stop to the beautiful girl who mocks Obi-Wan and breaks Tony’s heart. The George Lucas releases The Phantom Menace, and a disappointed Tony turns to the Dark Side of adolescence, falling in with stoners and goths and nu-metalheads so lame even Jar Jar Binks would shun them. However, armed with the sense of humor of Han Solo, the will power of Luke Skywalker, and the wise attitude of a much younger Yoda, Tony grows into a man worthy of riding shotgun with a Wookiee.
