On a side note - why did Disney decide to create Jyn's story in the YA realm? I mean, Ahsoka worked as a YA novel because the character came from a cartoon targeted at the YA audience. But Jyn's character comes from the most mature Star Wars to date, so...IDK. Seems odd to me.
Also, I'm ready for the Star Wars novels to move on to something other than "Here's a Story about a Character", i.e. Tarkin, Ahsoka, Thrawn, Rebel Rising, Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel, etc. Time to start thinking bigger. Maybe now that the Aftermath trilogy is done, they will. Please.
As most of the newer young adult Star Wars Novels, such as Ashoka and Lost Stars have been, this is written so that adults will find it enjoyable too. And really it is long enough it really could have been a canon novel. That said I think it could have spent a bit more time on her growing up with Saw and being a part of his band of rebels than it did. What there was of that was good, but I think the book would have been better with another chapter or two devoted to that time in her life. All in all, however, I think it presents a good backstory for a very good, and complex character.
