       Additional Information  
     
      Teenager Lisa Herbert lives in the small town of Mountain View on the planet Fairfield. The "Savage Rain" decades earlier shut down the hyperspace gate and isolated her world. A casual remark from her sister gets Lisa to ask a simple question: -If life was better before the Savage Rain,- why couldn-t it be better again?-




    That question starts Lisa on a journey. She re-activates Fairfield's "H-gate" and travels to the three worlds nearest her own: White Rocks; Big Springs; and Lone Star. She finds that each planet offers her a chance to improve everyone's lives, by hard work, trade, or making friends. She relies on her brains, her compassion, and a little sneakiness to solve the problems she faces. But Lisa realizes that the more she accomplishes, the more she has to do to answer her question.




    "Lisa's Way" presents a heroine more interested in reasoning than fighting, and more concerned with doing good than looking good. It's a science-fiction novel for readers tired of the usual "blast 'em up" or techno-babble, yet it's no weepy romance or surrealistic experiment. "Lisa's Way" is just a solid story crisply told. Perfect for pre-teen, teen, and young adult readers!
