Fledgling, Octavia Butler's first new novel in seven years,
is the story of an apparently young, amnesiac girl whose
alarmingly unhuman 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.
