Nnedi Okorafor’s latest work, Binti, manages to bring freshness and originality to what is basically a coming-of-age story. The heroine is Binti, a young Himba woman (a tribal group in a future Africa who specialize in mathematics and its use in technology – and who never leave home) who is accepted into Oomza University, the most advanced and rigorous university in the galaxy.
