Six amazing YA books that take place in slanted realities

Sarah Skilton is the author of Bruised, a martial arts drama for young adults; and High and Dry, a hardboiled teen mystery. At the BN Teen blog she tagged six amazing YA books that take place in skewed realities, including:
Adaptation, by Malinda Lo

The reality: High-school junior Reese is in Arizona with her handsome debate team partner, David Li, when all flights back to San Francisco—all flights, period—are grounded, and the Internet blows up with conspiracy theories that lead to a rapid breakdown in society. Reese and David attempt to drive home, but a car crash sends them to a mysterious hospital where their lives are saved—and possibly changed forever.

The slant: The government’s hiding something big. And I will say no more.

Adaptation is among Lauren Naturale's top six SF/F novels with non-white protagonists that aren’t by Octavia Butler.
