All Our Wrong Todays is a debut novel by Elan Mastai ... and it is amazing.
Our narrator is Tom Barren who starts us off by saying that he is from the world we should have had but he messed it up. A quarter of the book is following the steps that Tom took to get to the point where he fucked up the present. Then we move on to the act itself then the consequences of that act.
Tom is a failure in his world. His father dispises him. His mother is tragically killed. He cannot hold a job. He is unable to have meaningful relationships. His father, who is a distinguished scientist and the pioneer of time travel, is preparing for the first trip back into time to allow Chrononauts to witness the point of history where the technology of the world was propelled into unending clean energy and expansion.
Tom is given a pity job at his father's company. He's the backup to a brilliant Chronoaut named Penolope. He is mesmerized by Penelope and one day she finally shows interest in him and this is where it all goes downhill.
I don't want to spoil this for you guys. If you have any interest in science-fiction I highly suggest this book. It was enthralling. Tom is a lovable, interesting narrator. The author created a fantastic story here, go and devour it.
