About the Author:

Adam Gidwitz taught in Brooklyn for eight years. Now, he writes full-time—which means he writes a couple of hours a day, and lies on the couch staring at the ceiling the rest of the time. As is the case with all of his books, everything in them not only happened in the real fairy tales . . . it also happened to him. Really.

Review:

This adaption of The Empire Strikes Back packs just as much of a punch as the original film. The conceit here is to create a Jedi-in-training manual by telling the story through Luke Skywalker’s second-person narration... Gidwitz cheekily—but lovingly—re-creates what’s considered by many to be the strongest of the films... Various asides address the reader with lessons on meditation and self-control... This is less a direct translation and more of one author’s enthusiastic conversation with a beloved story. Brace for a brand-new crop of Padawans.—Booklist
