Ok. I went to library and picked up the second and the third book in the Binti series (and I liked that book!!!), annnnnnndddd… guess what…. a surprise LGBT character!

I literately did not even finish the book, ’cause I don’t read that stuff. Y’all can read it as much as you like, but I’m not gonna read that. I don’t hate LGBT people, I just really don’t want to read about it. I gave this book a very, VERY low rating, because every book I’ve picked up, lately, at the library, has had LGBT characters, it seems that the publishing companies are really pushing for this in every book they put out.

Over all, the book (or the few chapters I read) is also violent. I didn’t want to finish it and found it annoying and frustrating.

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.

After generations of conflict can human and Meduse ever learn to truly live in harmony?
