Star Wars is awesome
This was an amazing, informative short novel about Finn, Rey and Poe before Force Awakens. It's pretty nice to see what they were thinking before things went they way they did. I would definitely recommend this book.
Not worth a quarter portion
This book adds nothing to what we know about the characters. In particular, Rey's story, which is the shortest of them, has a razor thin plot with an obvious ending. Almost all of it is action and trivial dialogue, almost devoid of character description or development. The only thing we learn is that Rey has a flight simulator, which is how she has learned to fly. Don't waste your money buying it or your time reading it.
