I enjoyed the start of this coming-of-age novella about a young woman who leaves her family (against their wishes) and culture to study at a faraway university. Then the story changes and she turns into a negotiator between warring alien factions. I didn't like the pseudo-mysticism of this part of the story, and I felt like the massacre was pushed aside and forgotten too easily. All in all, a reasonably good read, but probably not deserving of so much hype.

Just Out of Jupiter’s Reach by Nnedi Okorafor is the fifth number in The Far Reaches collection of standalone stories set in outer space. The collection, produced with Audible in mind, presents stories by well-known science fiction authors. Okorafor gives us an Afrofuturist vision of third-world space exploration. A young woman nicknamed Tornado has her DNA matched with a semi-organic spacecraft and is sent to Jupiter space, where she meets several others of her kind. So far, so good. But the story lacks a central conflict, and we are never told why the pilots are sent out alone or what they are investigating in Jovian space.… (más)
