Delightful story with 12 year old leads who are creative and loving

Delightful and imaginative--great characters and an important story about immigration and being treated like you don't exist. Many laughs and warm moments--Binti, herself, is a complete joy. I don't remember anything the least age sensitive--although the story is a little complicated so that's why seems best for 10 and up.
