I’m in in the mood for a new science fiction YA read, and I think Glitch is exactly what I need.
Glitch by Heather Anastasui
Title & Author: Glitch by Heather Anastasui
Genre: YA- Science Fiction
Publication Date: August 7, 2012
Description: “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.”
Why I’m Stoked: Glitch seems like it will take a new tack at controlling pseudo-utopian societies, which are heavily prevalent in YA right now. I like the science fiction-y side and am looking forward to the romance(s) – even if there’s a love triangle.
