Binti is leaving her traditional, rural home against the wishes of her family, to pursue her education at the prestigious Oomza University. Unexpected events lead to an encounter with the Meduse, a seemingly violent and war-like race. But Binti soon learns that misunderstanding and miscommunication run deeply through all aspects of the universe and she may have a unique ability to bring hidden truths to light.
This is the first novella in a three novella series and the winner of both the Hugo and Nebula, prestigious Science Fiction writing awards. The moral and social implications and discussions make this a great title for fans of Star Trek.
