THE PRINCESS, THE SCOUNDREL, AND THE FARM BOY, by Alexandra Bracken

Star Wars

The story: Starts long ago, in a galaxy far, far away…Yup, it’s Luke, Leia, and Han, and they’ve resurfaced in book form to fill in any blanks you might have had in their backstory. Start on Tatooine, make the jump to hyperspace, witness the destruction of Alderaan, and finally accompany the warriors of the Rebellion as they seek to destroy the Emperor’s Death Star. It always was a good time, and still is, all these years later!

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you liked the movies, you’ll enjoy the familiar story with the little bit of extra info provided in these new books (there are also re-writes of The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi). Kind of like comfort food in book form!
