Asked by ajax44 on Tue 12, Sep 2017 08:36pm :
I've been trying to find this book again for a year now and still can't.
It's about these two sisters whose colony are forced to mine some like
psi-ore or something because it messes with robots AI. The younger sister
is a genius though (as happens to many of the children of this planet due
to psi-ore radiation). She's taken off-planet to be trained because of her
high IQ but before she goes she tricks a robot into going into the psi-mine
and it becomes self-aware. After that the girl and the robot work together
since the self-aware robot would be destroyed if discovered and the genius
girl can use him for her own plans.
Any help is appreciated.
