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.

Well, who doesn't want world peace?  Who doesn't want to live a life free of war and pain?  When I read the jacket of this book I thought those questions are easy to answer.  I was wrong.  To achieve that world you have to lose all those human qualities that make us individuals.  This book really made me wonder if peace would really be worth our freedom of thought and emotions.  This story has a lot of action and adventure, it kept me interested and turning the pages.  I still want world peace and to find a better way than war… but not if the cost is has high for those things as it was in this book.  This is a good read for anyone who likes unique and creative storylines.
Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received Glitch at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
