Item description for Lexa and the Gordian Maze of Terra by J. Robinson Andrew...
Planet Terra was a bleak and savage world, a mix of dense jungles and brutal deserts. Two kinds of people visited it: slave merchants and big game hunters. That is, until a fleeing space ship deposits young Lexa of the Clan Sinclair at the edge of the Merica Desert. With no memory of who she is, and what the web-like tattoo on her hand means, she joins a caravan on its journey to Manhat. Meanwhile, two great battle cruisers search for her, for the fate of the galaxy rests literally in the palm of her hand.

Lexa is a teenager that finds herself dumped on planet Terra with no memory of where she came from. Her only possession is a bag that allows her to store things inter-dimensionally. In this bag are several survival items and a hand-held computer named, "Albert." Lexa is discovered by a group of scavenging salvagers, Jax, Dril and Kel. Jax is a very rough character; however, the other two seem to be decent people and Lexa feels that she can trust them. Nobody has a clue about who she really is and her importance in the universe. Unbeknownst to her, she also has a self-destruct key in case she is captured.
Lexa is put to work by Jax. As they travel back to where they can sell their salvage, she has many adventures along the way. She has to figure out who she can and can't trust. She also learns a lot about the dangerous creatures of Terra. This is a learning experience for her. Lexa possesses a high degree of intelligence; she uses this gift to help solve the riddle of the Gordian Maze of Terra. This earns Kel and herself some great rewards that are not easily obtained nor easily held on to.
I really, really loved reading Lexa's story. It is a young adult book; however, I think that people of any age will enjoy it. I know I did. I found myself wishing that I had had books like this when I was a teen. Andrew Robinson knows how to put together a great sci-fi story. He has a very strong heroine, surrounded by characters with their own secrets. He also does a great job of incorporating sci-fi elements such as a variety of dangerous and disgusting creatures, and modern technological devices, such as Albert and the special bag. This was really a fun story to read. If you have a teenager in your life that needs to read a book for school, put "Lexa and the Gordian Maze of Terrs" into their hands and they will be thrilled. Make sure you read it yourself.
