. 257 pages : 23 cm..

Nicola Leahy commented on 21/03/2022: Most have known Carrie Fisher as an actress but what many don't know is that she is also a very talented author. All of her books including this one display a very dry and witty humour making this a fun and easy read. The inside story of her time as a fledgling actress in Star Wars and excerpts from her journals make this a very poignant memoir for Star Wars fans.

Comment on 01/06/2021: A good idea. Being Book 1, there is a lot of things that happened in the past that are not satisfactorily explained in this book. - hopefully in subsequent episodes.

Jennifer Corbett commented on 15/04/2020: I enjoyed this story even though it was challenging at times. The book looks at some of the reasons for suicide and methods. It raises questions about euthenasia and what can be found on the internet

Comment on 20/06/2019: You'd be forgiven for thinking this is The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency transferred to Sweden. What is gentle and quirky in Botswana is downright tedious in Scandinavia!
