In the Community, there is no more pain or war. Implanted computer chips have wiped humanity clean of destructive emotions, and thoughts are replaced by a feed from the Link network.
When Zoe starts to malfunction (or "glitch"), she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity. Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers.
As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future. Both boys introduce Zoe to feelings that are entirely new. Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they're caught and deactivated, or worse.
In this action-packed debut, Glitch begins an exciting new young adult trilogy.
I've been waiting a long time for the cover reveal, so I could post this as my WOW. Isn't it gorgeous? It's a work of art, like Heather's tattoos.
I haven't read a lot of science fiction, but I really should since I love anything to do with technology. Until recently I didn't realize I associated any science fiction book with Perry Rhodan, a series my dad has read all his life and has been trying to get me to read all my life. As well as those old TV series like Lost In Space with its (for this day and age) bad visual effects. Now that I've disconnected the association in my mind with the extra help of Marissa Meyer's Cinder, a whole new genre which I was very selective about is open to me. Glitch, like Cinder sounds like one of those books I would read whether I was cautious about science fiction or not because the synopsis drew me in right away.
Check out the trailer below and feel free to grab the widget if like me you're counting down the days until its release.
GRAB THE WIDGET!
