On the brink of extinction, being human means more than just surviving.
In Lib's world, it's dangerous to deviate from the norm. In fact, for someone who doesn't live up to the Artificial Intelligence's standards, it's practically a death sentence. Lib learns this the hard way when she wakes up in a barren wasteland, with her memories erased, and only one thought lodged in her mind:
"It's all my fault."
Lib is a Glitch - an imperfect human component of the utopian world called the Norm. Now she's thrown out, Lib will be forced to team up with two other Glitches, Skye and Raj, and the mysterious Rogue Wolf and his clan to survive. Wolf only cares about the survival of his group, but Raj thinks they can hack the A.I. and change the Norm for the better.
Now, Lib will have to decide which path to choose - whether to go with striking loner Raj or stay with Wolf and his tight-knit group. Her heart is drawn to both, but she's carrying a deadly secret that could jeopardize them all. Will she be able to save her newfound family and stop the A.I. before it's too late?

"The Clan must come first."
A pleasant, easy to listen book with an intriguing storyline, well read by narrator, Genevieve Kaplan.
A young woman wakes up, burned by the sun, in an exposed and barren landscape without memory of where or who she is. There's another person there, too, who calls herself Sky and explains she must be another Glitch, like herself, but wiped. And Sky takes her back to seek shelter for them both with Sky's Clan.
Simply told with short uncomplicated sentences in the first person from the point of view of the girl who calls herself Lib, the story of where they are, as well as her own identity, slowly unfolds. Ms.Kaplan's reading is clear and easy on the ear with different characters gently distinctive in their conversation. Although there are excitements along the way, and the whole is awash with a sort of introspective tension, this is not a fast paced, full bodied action thriller - more thoughtful instead.
I was fortunate in being gifted my copy of The Glitch by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. My thanks. It was a pleasant change of pace from much of my reading which I very much enjoyed. Suitable for all ages from young adult upwards. Although completely standalone, there is a sequel which I will almost certainly read in the near future.
