While I could spend all day re-watching the Star Wars movies, speculating over the new Solo movie trailer, and debating the taste of Porgs, I thought a round-up of recent YA novelizations and retellings that are part of and inspired by the Star Wars universe would be a nice way to celebrate this fan-made holiday.
These are the books you're looking for.
Star Wars Canon

Determined to uncover her parents' secrets, sixteen-year-old Princess Leia Organa starts down an increasingly dangerous path that puts her right under the watchful eye of the Empire.
