Moving Target by Castelucci and Fry - ADVISABLE

Castelucci, Cecil and Jason Fry Moving Target, 231 pages.  Disney, 2015.  $13.  
Violence: PG; Language: G; Mature Content: G.

Han Solo may be encased in carbonite, but Princess Leia has other duties that take precedence to freeing him.  Since she is such a well-known figure in the rebellion, drawing the Empire’s fire as a diversion for other Rebellion plans is one of those jobs.  AS she flies from planet to planet on her decoy mission , she has a small group of co-conspirators to keep her safe, but they are ignorant of their true mission and Leia feels more and more guilty for putting them into danger.

You can see Leia become less and less satisfied with her role as “princess” during the course of the book and by the end you can she how she grew enough to become the woman who might be able to save Han.
