|Glitch by Heather Anastasiu|
Paperback, 320 pages
Expected publication: August 7th 2012 by St. Martin's Press
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. 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.The synopsis alone is absolutely intriguing to me...Altered reality. Check. Rules to be broken. Check. Telekinesis, prophetic visions, and maybe a shape shifter of some kind? Oh but yes, check. It is right up my alley. I've been fortunate enough to be granted access to it via NetGalley! Now, if I can just make it through this last week of classes.... Cheers, friends!
