Binti: The Complete Trilogy by Nnedi Okorafor (book review).

The Beam: Season 1 by Sean Platt; Johnny B. Truant (ebook review).

The thing you first notice about ‘The Beam: Season 1’ is the format. It is set out very much as a scheduled TV program might be as it uses episodes rather than part I, part II, etc. There are six episodes in this first series and each episode is self-contained but drives the stories forward. […]
