Retro Reviews: ‘Lost Stars’ by Claudia Gray

Lost Stars by Claudia Gray is the first Young Adult novel in the canon of Star Wars, which was a part of the “Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens” line of books. It was released in September of 2015.

This is probably one of the most well defended Star Wars books in the canon. The people who love this book, truly LOVE it. I can’t begin to count the number of times I’ve seen it not only on someone’s top 10 list, but almost always at the #1 spot. And I can totally see why someone would feel that way about it. But for me, it’s not that amazing.

This book really happens in two phases, the first half and the second half. The first half of the book really reads like a standard YA sci-fi novel. It’s got all the young adult tropes and cliches that happens to be set in the Star Wars Universe. The second half of the book really feels like a Star Wars book, albeit one that happens to be a YA romance. I’ll admit, I enjoyed the second half a lot more than I enjoyed the first half.
