A new retelling of the original film, The Empire Strikes Back, for a middle-grade audience as you've never read it before. Written by New York Times best-selling author, Adam Gidwitz.

So you want to be a Jedi? It seems cool. You can move things with your mind. Control people with your thoughts. Oh, and the lightsabers. Yeah, those are awesome. But it's not all mind control and weaponised flashlights. Being a Jedi is hard work. Also, there are bad guys. Lots of bad guys. Who want to kill you.

Do you still want to be a Jedi? Well, this book tells the tale of one of the greatest Jedi ever. It's also a retelling of the classic film The Empire Strikes Back. But it is more than that. It also teaches you how to become a Jedi. Maybe you don't need to learn how to levitate or sense your surroundings blindfolded. And maybe you don't want to hear a story about lightsabers and murderous snow creatures and spaceships. But maybe you do want to hear such a story. And maybe, just maybe, you do want to learn how to be a Jedi. Well, in that case, this is the book for you. The choice, my young friend, is in your hands. Literally!
