This is the epitome of a feel-good book that anyone can appreciate. Pace yourself, this cozy coming of age story is easy to devour all too quickly.
I can't recommend this series enough. As a mix of scifi adventure, subterfuge and just the right amount of thriller, this book was hard to put down... both times that I've read it now. Regardless of whether or not you like Star Wars, give this a chance. While you're at it, listen to the audiobook as well! It pairs a great voice actor with a fabulous score and sound effects.
