If you get any of the publishing newsletters you probably have seen ads for these new MG/YA re-tellings of the three original Star Wars stories (A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi). I am SO VERY EXCITED ABOUT THESE!!
I am excited for the young girl who first saw Star Wars when she was 6; I am excited for the mom whose sons love Star Wars; I am excited for the grown up woman who tears up while watching the new Star Wars movie's trailer; and I am VERY EXCITED for the middle school librarian who is going to have three new books to engage readers with!!
First of all, LOOK AT THE COVERS!
These are AMAZING COVERS! I am in awe at the simplicity, yet they are so striking!
And the authors--Alexandra Bracken, Adam Gidwitz, Tom Angleberger--talk about some serious YA and MG cred! I am thinking Disney hit these out of the PARK!
I have not read the Sneak Peeks because I don't want to whet my appetite until I have them in my hands and can finish them, but if you want to read the sneak peeks, go here!
You can bet that I am ordering 3 or 4 copies of each for my library and getting them the day they come out.
