Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
In just half a day, my whole world has changed. The farm, my aunt and uncle.... They're gone. Destroyed by the Empire. All my life I've been waiting for something to happen to me. Something important. And now that it has, I'm not sure I know how to handle it.
Development[edit | edit source]
Continuity[edit | edit source]
The book states that while searching for the runaway R2-D2 in the Jundland Wastes, Luke Skywalker brought along a blaster pistol for protection. This is contradictory to the film, in which Skywalker brings a slugthrower. The also book states that Obi-Wan Kenobi cut off Cornelius Evazan's arm; in the film, Kenobi cuts off Ponda Baba's.
As Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa fight to escape Imperial stormtroopers aboard the Death Star, Skywalker pulls a rope and grappling hook from his belt. Originally seen in A New Hope, this rope was described as part of a stormtrooper's utility belt. However, the novel details the rope as one formerly used by Skywalker to pull droids out of sinkholes on Tatooine.
The book states that Gold Leader was able to fire off his proton torpedoes during Gold Squadron's attack run at the Battle of Yavin. This is contradictory to the film, in which Gold Leader is shot down by Darth Vader before being able to fire.
