La perdida by Jessica Abel( Book )

Carla Olivares, a young Mexican-American woman, goes to Mexico City to try to get in touch with her Mexican side. She's got her own, distorted ideas about what that means, and her annoyance with an old boyfriend who's leading his idea of the romantic expatriate life (by hanging out exclusively with other expats) makes her even more nervous about coming off like an outsider. She starts hanging out with a bunch of local lowlifes and blowhards who feed her guilt about being a privileged "conquistadora." They talk big (about stardom and revolution), but barely scrape by on petty crime—which eventually becomes not so petty, and sucks Carla into a vortex of fear and violence

Patricia "Trish Trash" Nupindju is a talented young hoverderby player on Mars 200 years in the future.

The indigenous Martian she's hiding in her garage, named Qiqi, has given her roller skates that can be used outside in the harsh Martian landscape. This cross-training is paying off well. But when her team's corporate overlords find out that Trish Trash has been jamming with the team, she loses her contract, taking on a year of extra debt, and things start going downhill for her family, fast.
