“Binti” by Nnedi Okorafor follows the story of the main character, Binti. Binti is about a 16 year old girl who gets accepted into a university named Oomza Uni. Her parents are pressuring her not to go and stay on her planet because of her culture and customs. She decides to do what she thinks is best for herself and goes against her parents wishes. On the way to Oomza Uni, she encounters challenges and conflicts that she could never imagine. In the beginning of the book it gives a tremendous amount of details and descriptions of the futuristic world they live in. I would definitely recommend this book because if someone doesn’t like reading longer books, this book is short, profound, and entertaining.
