A New Hope: The Life of Luke Skywalker is a young adult novel written by Ryder Windham.

A preview of Rebel Force: Target is included at the back of the book.
Hidden away at birth, he would believe himself an orphan. Watched over by a mysterious hermit, he would discover incredible abilities. And by finding hope where others found only evil, he would restore balance to the galaxy.
While accompanying Princess Leia to the world of Aridus to convince the native Chubbits to join the fledgling New Republic several months after the Battle of Endor, Luke Skywalker looks back on his life up to that point.
