Heir to the Empire was published when I was in high school. George Lucas had approved licensing for new stories to be written with Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Chewbacca. I couldn’t get home fast enough to start reading this book. And then, when I was in college, I reread the trilogy, or perhaps I lent them to my boyfriend at the time. In this book is a ticket from Boston to Worcester, where my college boyfriend’s family lives.
