Adam Gidwitz went for the wacky in his YA retelling of The Empire Strikes Back. While many adult fans consider Episode V to be sacred, Gidwitz isn’t afraid to have a little fun with it. Sometimes the narration uses the second person “you” to place the reader into the story, Yoda tells goofy parables, and makes many out-of-universe references. While technically a follow-up to The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy by Alexandra Bracken, it stands on its own as well.
