Ricochet by Kathryn Berla
When Tati sends a saliva sample to a DNA ancestry testing site her results come back inconclusive. Does it have to do with her unexplained seizures and the beckoning tunnel she sees during them? Tati soon discovers that parallel universes exist and her abnormal DNA compels and condemns Tati and her other selves—shy Ana—privileged Tatyana—and on-the-run Tanya, to a lifetime of ricocheting between their parallel lives in the multiverse.
War Girls by Tochi Onyebuchi (War Girls, Book One)
The year is 2172. Climate change and nuclear disasters have rendered much of earth unlivable. In a war-torn Nigeria, battles are fought using flying, deadly mechs and soldiers are outfitted with bionic limbs and artificial organs meant to protect them from the harsh, radiation-heavy climate. Two sisters, Onyii and Ify, dream of more. Their lives have been marked by violence and political unrest. Still, they dream of peace, of hope, of a future together.
I Hope You Get This Message by Farah Naz Rishi
Aliens might destroy the planet in a week. For Jesse, nothing has ever felt permanent. Not the guys he hooks up with. Not the jobs his underpaid mom works so hard to hold down. What does it matter if it all ends now? Cate is desperate to use this time to find the father she’s never met, the man she grew up hearing wild stories about. And then there’s Adeem. While coding and computer programming have always come easily to him, he can’t seem to forgive his sister for leaving, even though it’s his last chance.
