The Binti series tells the story of an amazing journey that starts with Binti moving farther away from her home than ever before. The outward journey of the first book is wonderfully foiled in this finale that has Binti reflecting inwardly on who and what she is, as well as her place in the cosmos. From outer space to molecular structure Nnedi Okorafor beautifully navigates the reader through Binti's search for purpose and meaning--a story greatly enhanced by Robin Miles's more than capable narration.

It's been a year since Binti and Okwu enrolled at Oomza University. A year since Binti was declared a hero for uniting two warring planets. A year since she found friendship in the unlikeliest of places. And now she must return home to her people, with her friend Okwu by her side, to face her family and face her elders. But Okwu will be the first of his race to set foot on Earth in over a hundred years, and the first ever to come in peace.

I wasn't planning on listening to Binti: Home in one sitting, but much like the titular character in her meditative mathematical treeing, I was caught in a trance. The soothing voice of the narrator and the story of a girl trying to find her place between worlds was engaging and pulled me in deeper the longer I listened.
