Summary from Goodreads:

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....there was a princess who became a legend.

Sixteen-year-old Princess Leia Organa faces the most challenging task of her life so far: proving herself in the areas of body, mind, and heart to be formally named heir to the throne of Alderaan. She's taking rigorous survival courses, practicing politics, and spearheading relief missions to worlds under Imperial control. But Leia has worries beyond her claim to the crown. Her parents, Breha and Bail, aren't acting like themselves lately; they are distant and preoccupied, seemingly more concerned with throwing dinner parties for their allies in the Senate than they are with their own daughter. Determined to uncover her parents' secrets, Leia starts down an increasingly dangerous path that puts her right under the watchful eye of the Empire. And when Leia discovers what her parents and their allies are planning behind closed doors, she finds herself facing what seems like an impossible choice; dedicate herself to the people of Alderaan—including the man she loves—or the galaxy at large, which is in desperate need of a rebel hero....

I'm loving this part of the Star War's timeline. This story is an exciting coming of age saga set before the events of the original movies.

Every time Princess Leia is involved, some snarky adventure is about to happen. I think that's what I love her character so much. She has the air of a princess with the mind of a general and the heart of a humanitarian. Even at this young age, she is a wonderful person.

Favorite Quote:
"Sometimes it does a girl good to fall for a bit of a scoundrel, now and then. Joy drives out fear. We must try to stand and succeed, but we must never fail to stand. I think two side buns tonight."

This book deserve a solid 4 out of 5 stars. It was a wonderful journey with one of my favorite princesses. I can't wait to read the rest of her timeline.
