Description : Jill Titan has lived all her eleven years in outer space of a far future century. When a 'life shell' she occupies is damaged and hurtles out beyond the edge of the galaxy, she must try to survive all alone. It's a good thing she's smart and courageous, because she's about to meet dangers such as an out-of-control robot and space pirates. More like 1950's space stories than modern ones, this series is written to please preteens and anyone else who enjoys the 'three R's': rockets, robots, and ray guns!
