Synopsis

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 Heather Anastasiu's action-packed debut, Glitch begins an exciting new young adult trilogy.

During this first book in the trilogy she also learns more about her own past -- something that haunts her and changes the way she thinks about her life.

The Young Folks

I’ve read a lot of dystopian, even vampire dystopian, but I’ve never read a story that combined supernatural abilities in a dystopian world.

I would recommend Glitch to teenage readers who enjoy futuristic stories and adventure, as well as to those who enjoy Scott Westerfield and Suzanne Collins.

Bookalicious

As the story began to pick up and the glitching became more frequent, I realized that the ‘dullness’ of the characters is what Zoe was trying to avoid by adapting to the glitching.
