Waiting on Wednesday (15): Glitch by Heather Anastasiu


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.

Yeah, I know, if I had a dollar for every time a new YA dystopian series came out, claiming to be "exciting" or the next big thing, I'd be pretty rich. In all honesty though, I really am excited for this one. I feel like technology-based plots in YA dystopian novels are underrated, and I wish that there were more of them! As scary as it is, especially mentioned in this context, computers are our present and future, and technological implants are already a reality in our world. I think that it's something that's going to become more and more common, both in fact and in fiction. Not that that's bad, but certainly interesting to think about!
