Fans of Star Wars have loved Princess Leida for decades, but after reading her memoir, I realized how little I knew about the woman behind the iconic hairstyle. In the The Princess Diarist, Carrie Fischer reflects on her rise to stardom, the pressures of fame, and her affair with Harrison Ford. I found this memoir eye-opeining and honest, but what stood out to me most was Fisher's sense of humor. She made me laugh out loud with her snarky, sardonic narration as she looks into old diary entries from her time on set. As a 19 year-old girl, I greatly appreciated Fisher's overlying message of "Yeah, I was young and dumb once, and that's okay," and as any human being would, I had a great time laughing with her.

When Carrie Fisher discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved -- plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naivet, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon is indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a teenager with an all-consuming crush on her costar, Harrison Ford.
