Perfect World. Lies. Blue eyes.
When a mysterious guy from the forbidden zone sneaks an illegal slip of paper to a beautiful young girl from Brighton, she must decide if she should turn him in or follow what the note says.
Eighteen-year-old Abby has no trouble following Brighton’s rules. For one, she’s OCD about checking her Date of Death clock, making sure her decisions never shorten her timeline, and two, she enjoys the peace Brighton has to offer. In no way would she bring on another attack that destroyed earth’s inhabitants like her predecessors. But when her best friend returns from her Advice Meeting--a glimpse into the future--shell shocked and won’t tell Abby what’s happened, she’s worried what awaits her Advice Meeting in a few days. The stranger with blue-eyes knows something, but does Abby dare enter the forbidden zone to get answers? It's infested with zombies, or so the Elected Agency says, yet there hasn't been sightings in years.... Those who enjoyed Divergent, Hunger Games, Time Travelers Wife and Walking Dead, will love Glitch.
At a Glance:
Be ready to sit and not put down the book pretty much once you begin reading Glitch. I knew it was Dystopian going in but it contains so much more.
Glitch is the story of a girl that is excited to see her future self and ask questions of what is to come. But like all good fiction books, things are never that easy. The girl gets a message from this blue eyed boy that tells her to skip the meeting. What is the girl to do, believe a stranger or do what she has been wanting to do for a long time. Of course during this process her friend has her doing things she shouldn't be doing. They are definitely up to no good. While doing these forbidden things something unexpected happens and the future is now changed forever. The girl must face and decided what must happen from now on.
The cover does make you wonder what the story is about before you dive in to read it. You notice the girl but she is transparent standing next to the guy and they are both looking out to the city that seems to be floating across the beautiful sea.
TONS of it! It starts you on like if you are getting ready to do a run but you get warmed up first because once the action takes off, you better have some real good running shoes, if not you will be left behind. The action will definitely keep you attached to this book.
Abby, she rocks! She gets the heroine award for facing everything that was new and different and unexpected bravely. She had to forget about how she lived before and now look forward and deal with everything she discovered.
When you have a boy with blue eyes, you know the romance has to be there. It wasn't at first but slowly it build up and you could feel how much Kaden pined for Abby.
Something I Loved:
I loved everything about this book. Pandos created an amazing story that combines several genres, keeping you hooked from the get go. The characters are awesome, full of snark. It's a story like you haven't read before. And that's big coming from me that I have read many many books.
Would I Recommend:
ABSOFREAKINGLUTELY!!! Pandos outdid herself with Glitch. I love her other series but I think Glitch has moved up to the top of my favorite book written by Brenda.
