Glitch by Heather Anastasui

Glitch (Glitch, #1)

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.

Paperback, 371 pages
Expected publication: August 7th 2012 by St. Martin's Press
My Review:
When I first started the book I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get into it. I didn't really know what it was about (I forgot to see what it was about, as I have had it for a couple of months). Little did I know, it wasn't going to take long before I was captivated by the story. There is adventure, action, and emotion
The story is set in a time where humans are implanted with a computer chip that takes away emotion and everything that makes us who we are. Anyone who "glitches" starts feeling everything that the computer chip is blocking. Color, emotions, etc. Zoe is the main character that is glitching. She soon realizes there are others that do as well, that have been hiding it, just like here. In the Community, when someone is turned in for being an anomalie (someone that is glitching) they are either reprogrammed or terminated. Zoe and her friends - other glitchers - are attempting to find a way out of the Community.
If you enjoyed this book I think you may like Starters by Lissa Price
