Seen the new Star Wars movie yet? Read Leia now!
First line: The Day of Demand had been announced months before.
Summary: Leia Orgna, the princess of Alderaan, has just turned 16. In order to be named heir to the throne she must complete three challenges. One for the body, one for the mind and one for the heart. As her life in politics continues to grow, she sees the galaxy fracturing and has to decide which side she will be on.
My thoughts: I have been a big Star Wars fan since I was a child. Leia has always been a favorite of mine because she is a strong, independent woman. She fights her own battles. This look into her years before the start of the saga gives insight into where this princess learned to shoot blasters and learned the politics of the Empire.
Ashley's rating: Release date: Sept. 1, 2017
