Binti: Home

Bintihome

 

Yes, another book by Nnedi Okorafor. This one is the second book in the Binit series, and there will be more. Binti Home is just 162 pages and it packs so much into it.

There are characters that are nonbinary, and one that is trans. There is PTSD, there is the threat of war, there is discovering the protagonist predigest. There is a trip home, there is losing self, finding self, accepting change and learning truths. There is rejection, anger, hope, pain and the list goes on.

This book took me a bit longer to read than the other one. I have PTSD and while my triggers are not hers, I know what she is feeling when she experiences her PTSD.  I have recommended this book to friends of mine who work with kids.

I should just give Ms. Okorafor all the money. Oh OH, and it turns out the next book is coming out in January!!
