Blurb + Giveaway: Glitch



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.

If there's one thing that I've learned about dystopians, world-building is key. If you don't have a good world to escape to and a decent reasoning behind the creation of said world, your book simply cannot be read. Well, I can honestly say that Glitch has a dystopian world that I have not encountered before. Comm Corp staged an entire D-Day simply because they wanted control, not because a revolution happened or anything else. A group of powerful people were selfish and used technology to their advantage to create a group of people that live underground with undying loyalty. And the use of microchips, as well as the different stages that a person experiences the chips, and those who regulate them is unique in every aspect of the term. Antanasiu certainly created an original and imaginative world.
