Moving Target by Cecil Castelucci and Jason Fry

Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure
by Cecil Castelucci and Jason Fry [j Castelucci]

Moving Target is set in the time between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The Rebellion has just learned that the Empire is building another Death Star. To give the Rebellion the opportunity to gather their fleet and destroy the Death Star before it becomes operational, Leia suggests a risky diversion using herself as bait. Leia, along with a ragtag band of misfits common to the Rebellion, succeed in getting the Empire’s attention. But, might the harm done to others be too much to bear? Is victory worth any price? “Moving Target” is a good, well-paced short read aimed at younger readers (though more than a few older readers might enjoy it). It’s a Star Wars story that has been told many times before, though it is still a worthwhile read.
