The thrilling sequel to the Hugo and Nebula-winning Binti.It’s been a year since Binti and Okwu enrolled at Oomza University. A year since Binti was declared a hero for uniting two warring planets. A year since she found friendship in the unlikeliest of places.And now she must return home to her people, with her friend Okwu by her side, to face her family and face her elders.But Okwu will be the first of his race to set foot on Earth in over a hundred years, and the first ever to come in peace.After generations of conflict can human and Meduse ever learn to truly live in harmony?Praise for Nnedi Okorafor:"Binti is a supreme read about a sexy, edgy Afropolitan in space! It's a wondrous combination of extra-terrestrial adventure and age-old African diplomacy. Unforgettable!" - Wanuri Kahiu, award winning Kenyan film director of Pumzi and From a Whisper"A perfect dove-tailing of tribal and futuristic, of sentient space ships and ancient cultural traditions, Binti was a beautiful story to read.” – Little Red Reviewer“Binti is a wonderful and memorable coming of age story which, to paraphrase Lord of the Rings, shows that one girl can change the course of the galaxy.” – Geek Syndicate“Binti packs a punch because it is such a rich, complex tale of identity, both personal and cultural… and like all of Nnedi Okorafor’s works, this one is also highly, highly recommended.” – Kirkus Reviews"There's more vivid imagination in a page of Nnedi Okorafor's work than in whole volumes of ordinary fantasy epics." -Ursula Le Guin"Okorafor's impressive inventiveness never flags." - Gary K. Wolfe on Lagoon

5.0 Love, love, love this series!
This book fills in some plot holes from book one. And I'm not going to pressure anyone into reading this if they were unhappy with book one: the truth is that it shouldn't have really worked the way she set it up. Binti is a little advanced, I think, for any of her people, so the accusation of M...
