Alexandra Bracken got her shot at her dream job with this young adult retelling of Star Wars. She leaned into the character of Princess Leia, presenting much of the story from her perspective. While not an essential Star Wars read if you’re looking to make your way through the wealth of EU material, it’s a perfectly refreshing take on a beloved story and a great gift for the Padawans in your life looking to get started reading in a galaxy far, far away.
Although the Rebel Alliance has won a few battles against the Empire, hope is fading. The Empire is about to finish building the greatest weapon the galaxy has ever seen—the Death Star. The rebels' only chance to defeat it now lies in the unlikely hands of a princess, a scoundrel, and a farm boy. . . .
