The Glitch in Sleep by John Hulme and Michael Wexler is the first installment of a thrilling trilogy about a world called The Seems which is responsible for making our world work. The Seems keeps everything in check with different departments for different things like weather time and even sleep! But when something goes wrong a Fixer is called to contain and take care of the problem. A 12 year-old kid named Becker signs up for job at The Seems. After becoming a Fixer, Becker’s first mission is to find the Glitch which was wreaking havoc in the Department of Sleep.
Not knowing who let the Glitch loose he stumbles upon The Tide, an underground organization bent on destroying The Seems and taking over the world. Can Becker stop the Glitch or will his first mission be his last? I would rate this book a five out of five because of the character development and the way the authors painted each image into your mind. I would recommend this book to any middle or high school Sci-Fi lover. The way the authors entwine science into fiction in this fast-paced book makes it a very good read.
