Waiting on Wednesday: Glitch by Heather Anastasiu

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
Glitch by Heather Anastasiu.
Publication Date: August 7th 2012

  
Glitch - 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. 
Synopsis by goodreads.com 

Why I'm waiting: Away from fairies and vampires here is science fiction to explore! I'm looking forward to a different angle on a dystopian world, with new technology and super-human abilites thrown in the mix. Also, a telekinetic heroine and a touch of romance? I'd say that sounds like fun. :)
