When BB-8 is separated from his master, Poe Dameron, on the lonely desert planet of Jakku, he has no choice but to keep rolling. It's all up to him to get a top-secret map back to the Resistance so they can find Luke Skywalker and save the galaxy from the evil First Order. It's scary to have a big job when you're just a little droid on your own. But BB-8 isn't alone for long. As he speeds across the sand, BB-8 meets all kinds of strangers who need his help. Should he do good things, as Poe always told him, or will that get in the way of his mission? See how everyone's favorite little astromech droid makes friends and foils enemies in this funny and exciting new Star Wars adventure!

I have to admit that I am a pretty late bloomer when it comes to the Star Wars series. However, the good news is that I am in the know of what happens and all the important stuff. Although I am not fully caught up in the movies, I was really excited to dive in and go off on an adventure with BB-8.

Following BB-8 as he sets off to get a top-secret map back to the Resistance we find ourselves on the planet Jakku. Setting off BB-8 meets different people who he feels that he must help even though by doing so, slows him down with any chance of getting the map into the right hands. However, with most all adventures there are always those bumps in the road and for BB-8, this bump is chasing him.

I really enjoyed the story. I thought it was a little different that most children books that I have read in the past and that is because it felt like it was for a little bit older child. Not seeing the movies did, however, make me a little bit more intrigued by all the side characters in the novel and the fact that there were visuals made the reading experience so much more.

Like mentioned, I really enjoyed the illustrations. I think for someone picking up this book who has not seen the films would enjoy the visual support that can introduce some of the life, people, and animals that you see in the movie and have it all geared for the younger audience.

I don't know about you but after reading this, I am wanting to drop everything and do a Star War marathon. Regardless if you are a fan of the franchise or not, I encourage you to stop by and pick up this book. Go on an adventure with BB-8 and find out if he is successful or not.
