Contributor Bio(s):
E.K. Johnston had several jobs and one vocation before she became a published writer. If she's learned anything, it's that things turn out weird sometimes, and there's not a lot you can do about it. She is the author of the acclaimed novels A Thousand Nights and Exit, Pursued by a Bear as well as the forthcoming Spindle.

Anakin Skywalker's former Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, uses her Jedi training to rescue her new friends on an Imperial-controlled farming moon. Johnston fills gaps in Ahsoka's story between the TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. The story's leisurely pace transitions into an action-filled ending. Fans will be pleased, but readers unfamiliar with the source material aren't given enough background. Copyright 2017 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Gr 7 Up—Ahsoka Tano holds a special place in the hearts of many "Star Wars" aficionados. The breakout character of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV show finally gets her story told, and fans will not be disappointed. After leaving the order of the Jedis and her teacher Padawan Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka embarks on a journey to discover who she is and how she can move on after leaving the group that has defined her for so long. She ends up on Raada, a small, out-of-the-way moon base, and begins a new life. When the evil Imperial forces rear their heads, Ahsoka's newly idyllic life starts to sour, and she can't help but heed the familiar call of the Rebel Alliance. Teens will be able to relate to Ahsoka's emotional journey of attempting to find her place in the world. The plot moves at a slow pace in the first half as Ahsoka tries to deal with her emotions and figure things out. Those who have little to no knowledge of The Clone Wars and Rebels TV shows will be lost, as Johnston gives almost no background on the title character's previous adventures. VERDICT "Star Wars" devotees will rejoice in reading this long-awaited chapter in the life of a fan favorite; others may want to skip this one.—Christopher Lassen, BookOps: The New York Public Library and Brooklyn Public Library.
