Leia Princess of Alderaan
Best-selling author Claudia Gray explored Princess Leia’s middle age as a politician grappling with insurgency and the public revelation she is Darth Vader’s daughter in last year’s adult novel Bloodline. Now she returns with her YA novel that reveals the never-before-told saga of how Leia comes to join the rebellion against the evil Empire. The story is set on the eve of her 16th birthday when Leia believes there is more to the galaxy and her life than she ever realized. Regardless of what her parents think, Leia knows she must fight for what is right and join the rebels to defeat the Empire.
