Summary from Goodreads:

Set before the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story! Han and Qi'ra don't have a lot in common other than not having a lot. They're street kids on the industrial planet Corellia, doing whatever it takes to get by, dreaming of something more. They each jump at a chance to prove themselves in the perilous world of Corellia's criminal underbelly, only to discover they are on the same mission for the same unscrupulous boss. When the job goes disastrously wrong, Han and Qi'ra are on the run--from pirates, a droid crime syndicate, the Empire, and their boss--and will have to learn to trust each other if they are going to survive.

Although this book is set before the Solo movie, from the opening scene, I really thought it was the movie book. I don't know if Rae Carson was trying to play off the fact that Han is always late to everything, so in this book he follows the same routine he always does, just like in the movie, or if this was just an oversight with a scene that is far to close to the movie.

Either way, I loved this story. It gives us back story into both Han and Qi'ra and how they fell in love, but also insight into why she fell away from Han after he left Corellia.

There was one thing that stuck out for me. From what I remember of the movie, Han didn't have a last name until he was forced to pick one when he signed up for the imperial military... This book references his last name "Solo" quite a bit.

Either way, I loved this read. It was exciting and quick paced.
