Airman, by Eoin Colfer, is about Conor Broekhart, a boy born to fly. He grows up on the Saltee Islands, a friend of the king. He finds out about a conspiracy, but is framed by it. He is put into prison, where the only way to escape is to fly.
This trilogy, by Bryan Davis, explores the possibility of there being three simultaneous realities, each bearing a person, exactly identical to two others, each in their respective earths. Soon, however, the worlds are thrown out of sync and Nathan Shepherd and his friends, with their twins, must realign them before disaster strikes.
