You’ve watched all of the Skywalker Saga, but how well do you really know Padmé, the courageous and hopeful leader who served as Queen and then Senator of Naboo?
In this young adult novel written by New York Times bestselling author E.K. Johnston, Padmé Naberrie steps down from her position as “Queen Amidala” and is asked to become Naboo’s representative in the Galactic Senate. Together with her most loyal handmaidens, Padmé must figure out how to navigate the treacherous waters of politics and forge a new identity beyond the queen’s shadow.
“Padmé fought against unstoppable forces, and she never gave up on what she believed in,” says author E.K. Johnston. “Sometimes she held on too tightly, but she always knew what she stood for, and that never stops being incredible.”
This tale is an empowering novel about courage and finding strength in a galaxy far, far away. For a limited time, a free eBook download (available only in the US) will be available from May 1 to May 8, via Disney Books here.
