Read full description of the books:
This is the book where we finally learn what happened to Tahiri's parents and how she came to be adopted by a tribe of Sand People. Part of the agreement when Tahiri went to Yavin 4 to learn to be a Jedi was that she would come back to Tatooine to find out about her family and then make an informed decision about whether or not she truly wanted to be a Jedi or if she wanted to return to her tribe (I think we all know which one she chooses, as there are two more books in this series). Naturally, Anakin goes too, as at this point these two may as well be conjoined twins, for all the time they spend apart.
Tionne, having apparently not learnt from Peckhum's experience in the previous book, escorts the two to Tatooine so Tahiri can meet with her tribe, where, predictably, Tahiri's visit home turns into craziness pretty much instantly. Since attracting all of the trouble possible seems to be a habit for these two, I feel sorry for any adult whose responsibility includes trying to keep them out of it. Poor Tionne.
Tahiri returned to Tatooine to learn the truth about what happened to her birth parents only to be told that she can only learn that if she's a full member of the tribe. So, she has to undergo the tribe's initiation ritual, which consists of being dropped off alone (well, with Anakin, so not really alone, so I suppose he's now an honorary member of the tribe, too) in the desert with no supplies and making her way back to the tribe within three days without dying first.
Of the Junior Jedi books, I think this is my favourite, in part because it focuses a lot more on Tahiri's background. We already know where Anakin came from, but Tahiri was a bit of a mystery, even to herself. We also see a lot more of Sand People, as well as learn what a Krayt dragon looks like and how Jawas got their sandcrawlers. Then, after everybody heals up from the injuries sustained trekking across the desert with no supplies at all and fighting dragons (mostly Anakin - the Krayt dragon doesn't agree with him very much), they finally tie up the golden globe thing that was introduced in the first book.

I've written for a circus, a graduate school, tried my hand at waitressing (I was terrible!), baking carrot cakes (I was messy but good!), and been lucky enough to ultimately do what I love - write.
I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and our mostly wonderful (but sometimes vorpal) Vizsla. When I'm not conjuring a story, I love to kite-board, bike, ski or plan adventures with my two guys, who both make me laugh for different reasons and are the best partners in fun a gal could ever imagine.
