A New Hope : Star Wars Episode IV. Chirpy Bird, 2015. ISBN 9781760125097
(Age: 9 - low teens) Highly recommended. I am a relatively new Star Wars fan. having only watched the new movies I was not really familiar with the Star Wars Books and I found this book really interesting and exciting.
I liked the way the book was written in the 3rd person and was told from each of the main characters' point of view. It was a good way for me to get to know each of the characters and understand their personalities.
Leia was my favourite. She was very brave and always did what she thought was right, even if it seemed risky. I really related to her and loved how clever she was and how she was both physically and mentally strong.
The book was very easy to read and well suited to readers from 9 - low teens. Highly recommended to Star Wars fans and others who enjoy adventure and action books.
