SATURDAY MORNING SCI-FI

Binti by Nnedi Okorafor

Binti is a brave, young African woman who leaves her family to study Mathematics at a prestigious interstellar university. But on her way there, the ship is attacked by aliens. In just under 100 pages, this book packs a whollop, as Binti talks down the invaders, negotiates her own safety and achieves peace – all before the ship arrives at school!

“This has all the hallmarks of what I love in sci-fi: scary tentacly aliens, advanced technology, a misunderstood protagonist who runs away from home to travel in space. It’s also the first book in a completed trilogy of novellas so it’s a very quick and easy read and you can immediately launch into the second and third books when you’re done. Part sci-fi, part coming of age story, part thrilling adventure, this tiny book has something for everyone.” -- Natalie
