Glitch by Heather Anastasiu

Summary:(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.
Review: I was excited to read this book, but after finishing it my feelings are somewhat mixed. I liked the idea and I think for the most part it was played out pretty well. There was one plot twist towards the beginning that annoyed me and I thought was kind of unnecessary. Overall, the plot was that of a fairly typical dystopian. The characters in this book were well written. Zoe and Adrien were my favorites and i liked getting to know them over the course of the book. I thought Max was annoying and am curious to see what he is up to in the next book. Molla is another character that has an interesting story line that I am anxious to see play out. Overall, I did enjoy this book and I think fans of dytopian novels should give this one a try.
