If you’re a fan of all things Star Wars, then this is the book you’re looking for!

From the moment audiences are introduced to Leia in the first Star Wars movie, it’s clear she is not your typical princess. Leia is a brave warrior, a spy, and a diplomat. Throughout the series, she has fought on the side of good, even after seeing her home planet destroyed or being captured by a slimy, evil space alien.

But how did this character become so beloved and seen as a model for other adventure heroines? Author Brandon T. Snider gives readers the scoop on Leia’s background, her true parentage, her mastery of the Force, her friends and foes, and her legacy.
