Gr 7 Up–With Obi-Wan Kenobi taking over Disney+, this novel features some never before seen backstory for young Obi-Wan and the beginnings of his relationship with Master Qui-Gon Jinn. Obi-Wan sets off alone to a mysterious planet and finds a feral group of teen Force-users, while Qui-Gon struggles to find out what is wrong with the Force on this planet. Obi-Wan wrestles with the question of whether he should be a Jedi at all. Ultimately, this is a coming-of-age story about finding yourself and where you belong. Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are both white and the only main human characters.
VERDICT With Obi-Wan a cornerstone of the “Star Wars” franchise with a recent blockbuster show, this title is recommended for general purchase.
