Waiting on Wednesday - Glitch by Heather Anastasiu

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

Title: Glitch
Author: Heather Anastasiu

Coming August 7th from St. Martin's Press!

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.

What are you waiting on?

I'm so excited for this one! The cover is pretty and I love the idea of no humanity until she malfunctions. Then she has thoughts and feelings. Should be interesting.
