Ahsoka Tano, fan favorite character from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, will be the star of her own young adult novel from Disney Lucasfilm Press this October 11, 2016! Fans have long wondered what happened to Ahsoka after she left the Jedi Order near the end of the Clone Wars, and before she re-appeared as the mysterious Rebel operative Fulcrum in Rebels. Finally, her story will begin to be told. Following her experiences with the Jedi and the devastation of Order 66, Ahsoka is unsure she can be part of a larger whole ever again. But her desire to fight the evils of the Empire and protect those who need it will lead her right to Bail Organa, and the Rebel Alliance....
When stormtroopers visit her place the following day, Ahsoka uses a Jedi mind trick to convince them not to reassign her on the grounds that her work is important to food production. Later, she goes to the local spaceport and manages to retrieve her starship after some haggling with an Imperial officer. After hiding her ship, she meets with her farming friends at the canteen. Ahsoka learns that Malat and her husband are moving to take up work on the planet Sullust. Ahsoka claims that her ship was stolen. She also learns from Kaeden that the Imperials have added two hours to every shift. She and the farmers then witness the ill-tempered Tibbola getting into a fight with an Imperial officer. Ahsoka and the others watch in horror as the officer executes Tibbola.
After the Imperials have left, Ahsoka advises Kaeden and the other farmers to resist the Empire by slowing crop production. Two weeks later, the slow crop production leads the Empire to increase the work shifts without increasing food rations or breaks. Ahsoka spends her days smuggling food, medical supplies, and water recyclers to the caves. She learns from Vartan that the new Imperial crops leach the soils, devastating Raada. Ahsoka briefs the farmers about her plans to smuggle supplies into the caves and start a resistance movement. Meanwhile, Jenneth Pilar reflects on his posting to Raada, regarding the moon as a backwater. Kaeden, Hoban, and Miara debate whether to support \"Ashla's\" plans.
Later, Ahsoka reflects on her reasons for leaving the Fardi family. She saved several of the younger Fardis, including four-year-old Hedala, from falling to their deaths with her Force powers. She later discovered that Hedala herself was Force-sensitive. To avoid arousing the Empire's attention, she decided to flee Thabeska. While \"Ashla\" is away, Kaeden and Miara talk about the Togruta offworlder's plans to start up a resistance movement. Miara is assembling explosives. Later, \"Ashla\" returns with supplies. For the next two days, Miara assembles explosives while Ahsoka and Kaeden set up a door for their cave. Four days later, Vartan tells Ahsoka that eight crews (roughly forty farmers) are prepared to support her plan.
Following the Imperial search, Fardi apologizes to \"Ashla\" for the Empire pinning their activities on her. He tells Ahsoka that he is aware that she has been using his ships for mercy missions. To avoid further trouble from the Imperials, Fardi advises Ahsoka to leave. She also tells Fardi that his niece Hedala is special and to keep an eye on her. Before leaving, Ahsoka bids farewell to Hedala. After departing the Fardi household on her ship, Ahsoka travels to a remote world. She lands her ship, but is soon followed by a starship belonging to an agent of Black Sun.
In the novel, it is implied that Order 66 occurs on Mandalore shortly after Maul's capture and the end of the Siege, and that he escapes in the confusion. \"Shattered\" instead has Order 66 occur on a starship, with Ahsoka letting Maul out of his confinement to distract the clones. \"Victory and Death\" then retcons the flashback scene where Ahsoka is depicted abandoning her lightsabers at a false grave created for Rex with the body of another clone to fake their deaths: in the episode, Ahsoka and Rex escape from the Venator-class Star Destroyer before it crash-lands on a moon, killing everyone else still aboard. Ahsoka does abandon her lightsaber at a grave site, but the ones she and Rex dug to bury everyone whose body they could find. The change means that Rex leaves with his armor, instead of dressing another clone's body in it as was done in the novel. Additionally, Ahsoka is only seen leaving behind one of her lightsabers, with the fate of her shoto lightsaber not being shown on-screen. Finally, Ahsoka and Rex are implied to leave the moon together as they only have one starship, in contrast to the novel's description of them leaving separately because they acquired two ships.
Number the Stars is told from the point of view of ten-year-old Annemarie Johansen. The story is set in the city of Copenhagen, Denmark in September 1943, the third year of the Nazi occupation of Denmark. Annemarie and her best friend Ellen, who is Jewish, are stopped by soldiers on their way home from school. The two girls, who go to the same school and live in the same building, are unsettled by their first direct encounter with the Germans. Mrs. Johansen and Mrs. Rosen are concerned and ask the girls to take a new route to school. The encounter makes Annemarie reflect on what her father has taught her about Denmark and also about her older sister Lise's death a few years before the start of the novel. Later in the fall, Annemarie and her younger sister Kirsti discover that Mrs. Hirsch's neighborhood shop has been closed. This event further alarms Mrs. Johansen, though Annemarie does not understand why. 1e1e36bf2d
