Waiting on Wednesday- Glitch by Heather Anastasiu

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine highlighting upcoming books that we are eagerly anticipating.

This week I am featuring Glitch, a YA dystopian debut by Heather Anastasiu:

The cover was just revealed a few days ago. Isn’t it striking? And here is the description from Goodreads:

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.

Sounds like a cool Sci-Fi Dystopia! The author describes it as 1984 meets X-Men. The idea that the glitchers have had their feelings repressed for so long they don’t know how to handle them sounds interesting. So they have to deal with new emotions and new supernatural powers while hiding from the Community.

Look for Glitch in August 2012 coming to you from St. Martin’s Press. And there’s a book trailer too:

What book are you waiting on this week?
