Book Review: Be More Leia by Christian Blauvelt

Be More Leia is a quick read that is meant to inspire the reader to stand up for themselves and others. Is it silly? Some might think so. I find that there is inspiration and encouragement in the characters of Star Wars, mostly in Princess Leia herself. This book looks beyond the movie and shows the reader the underlying hope and advice Star Wars can give. Each page in Be More Leia is set up with a quote from one of the movies followed by something you can take away from the advice given in the quote. There were four that stood out to me:

"This is something I must do myself" - Padme Amidala The advice: Be Proactive

"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine." - Obi-Wan Kenobi The advice: Stand up to Bullies

"Hope is like the sun. If you only believe in it when you see it, you'll never make it though the night." - Vice Admiral Holdo, quoting General Organa The advice: Don't quit when things get tough

"I don't know who you are, or where you came from, but from now on, you do as I tell you, okay?" -Princess Leia The advice: Be the boss

Each quote is followed by a paragraph explaining what the advice means, and I promise, you won't be disappointed! When you read this book, and I know you will, have fun with it and remember, shouldn't we all be a little more Leia?
