Choose to Choose Your Destiny!

The latest title in the Choose Your Destiny series is A Finn & Poe Adventure, published last year as part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker promotion.

For those unfamiliar with the series, these exciting, plot twisting tales flow with multiple story paths and outcomes based on the choices of the reader. The story can be tragically short or unfold as a lengthy adventure, depending on the decisions made.

At 140 pages, these page-turning chapter books are great fun for middle graders to enjoy controlling the story.

This time Poe, Finn and BB-8 evade the First Order at every turn on their mission for the Resistance. The story takes place between The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker.

As with the other books in the series A Finn & Poe Adventure is written by Cavan Scott (Adventures in Wild Space) and illustrated by Elsa Charretier. Scott captures the banter of these two characters and puts them into appropriately silly but dangerous dilemmas. Charretier's wildly colourful and exciting images add a fun element to the books too.

Unfolding more like a game than a regular novel, these stories are a lot of fun and challenge the reader to "solve" them by getting to the one happy ending.

Choose wisely!
