This is book number 2 in the Binti series.
I was tired of reading the same sci-fi novel over and over again. But through Binti, Nnendi Okorafor turns many classic tropes on their head. What does it mean to be an alien when you are already an outsider on your own planet and winin your own culture? Binti is the first Himba girl to attend Oomza University, a school far from earth and her family. What follows are life-changing experiences which ask questions of belonging, culture, loyalty, and how new perspectives can change the world.— Parrish
