THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD by Colson Whitehead

This is an incredible alternate history of the antebellum South. I didn't realize when I started reading it that this was alternate history, and I was pleasantly surprised by the changes, which include a physical railroad running underneath slave states. Come for the train, stay for the creepy social experiment laws that vary state by state. This is one of the best books of the last few years.
