If you like your time travel novels with a smidge of Einstein, a smattering of social realism, and more than a pinch of spot-on London dialect, follow Esso and Rhia as they figure out themselves and the mysteries of spacetime.

As ominously perfect as Stepford Wives and as petrifyingly sinister as Bluebeard’s Wife, this book crawls under your skin and pulls you apart from the inside. Cat Valente could make a grocery list read like a timeless fable and reveals the inherent uncanny valley elements of an HOA like no other could. I could write odes to the ending, but it’s better if you experience it yourself, because it strikes a chord in you that will reverberate for days after you close the book.

What says "holidays" more than smashing corrupt capitalist overlords? This book contains intense asexual friend crushes, community solidarity, using the media to expose corporate lies, and, of course, rad video game action. It's a romp, but with feelings.
