Black Speculative Fiction Month: Day Twenty-Six (The Catch-Up)

Title: Binti

Author: Nnedi Okorafor

Where you can find it: http://www.amazon.com/Binti-Nnedi-Okorafor/dp/0765385252/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1445846804&sr=1-1&keywords=binti

Why you should get it: Okorafor hits it out of the park again with this story.  You have a strong, young female protagonist who is willing to take a risk.  But this story is an interesting exploration of culture, what it means to defy it and the ways cultures clash when trying to communicate.  An excellent space academy adventure.
