Book Overview: Fledgling

Fledgling, Octavia Butler's last novel, is the story of an apparently young, amnesiac girl whose alarmingly un-human needs and abilities lead her to a startling conclusion: she is in fact a genetically modified, 53-year-old vampire. Forced to discover what she can about her stolen former life, she must at the same time learn who wanted--and still wants--to destroy her and those she cares for, and how she can save herself. Fledgling is a captivating novel that tests the limits of "otherness" and questions what it means to be truly human.

Octavia E. Butler (1947-2006) was an American science fiction author who broke barriers as an African American woman in a genre dominated by white men. Recognized for her unique blend of science fiction and African American spiritualism, her work explores themes of race, gender, and identity. Butler's writing won her multiple Hugo and Nebula awards, making her one of the best-known women in the field. Some of her most notable books include "Kindred," and the "Parable" series. In 1995, she became the first science-fiction writer to receive a MacArthur Fellowship, also known as the "Genius Grant." Through her trail-blazing work, Butler has left a lasting legacy in the world of science fiction and beyond.
