Robot Girl by Malorie Blackman

Robot Girl is an Afrofuturistic version of Bernard Beckett’s Genesis for children, populated with a black cast of characters. Genesis is one of my all-time favourite books. It inverts expectations and examines what it means to be human and the value of emotions.

The cover is what drew me in. It’s rare to see black characters in sci-fi novels. Knowing it was written by Malorie Blackman was the cherry on top.

*Robot Girl is a dyslexia friendly book first published in Sensational Cyber Stories (1997).
