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.

Computer chips are implanted to control the minds in this emotionless community that Zoel, known to her friends as Zoe, lives in. When she starts to have glitches, and soon finds out she isn't the only one.

There's two different boys in the book, both couldn't be any different. Adrian, was great and Max who I didn't like at all, I think the book would have been just fine without him.

It reminded me of a different book, in a way, with the computer chips. And there were some resemblances to other books as well.

This book was easy to get into because Zoe is already glitching when you start the book. This one comes out August 7, 2012. Book two Override is due February 2013. I'm not sure if I'll be checking that one out to be honest.

Thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for providing an advance copy!
