The Glitch (The Glitches 1)

The Glitch

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 AI's standards, it's practically a death sentence. Lib learns this the hard way when she wakes up with her memories erased in a barren wasteland where bands of Rogues scavenge for food and resources: This hostile place is the Outside. Lib is a Glitch, an imperfect human component of the utopian Norm. Now, she'll have to team up with her fellow Glitches Skye and Raj and the mysterious Rogue Wolf Tracker and his clan to survive. Wolf only cares about the survival of his group, but Raj thinks they can hack the AI and change the Norm for the better. Now, Lib will have to decide which path to choose-whether to go with handsome 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 AI before it's too late?

This book turned out to be better than anticipated, however it was still middle of the road.
I like the fact that Lib knew what she wanted and enjoyed being touched and wanted to be touched. That’s something other books leave out, that they are enjoying what is going on.
However I don’t really get why Lib likes Wolf. He really doesn’t say much to her and there’s just no chemistry. Maybe that’s a good thing, because that means he can’t be an asshole. Raj however the other point in the triangle just seem more approachable. They actually talk and stuff.
Other things I saw was the magical black person where Bird is concerned. She even has ribbon in her hair that flap constantly. Her power is seeing the future. She’s also the one who is supposed to be with Wolf, however Lib comes in and she’s shoved to the side. Bird also starts to dislike Lib and there’s a lot of girl hate going on that’s only solved when most of the girls are killed at various points in the book.
The only girl that Lib likes and that likes Lib is the blond haired, blue-eyed girl Skye. I should also point out the the other people are usually described as having ‘dark skin’ so it’s a double negative plus ungood that there’s girl hate from them and the death, off screen I might add.
The ending is nice however as Lib does most of it herself while the man with her is only useful in a few spots, other than other stories where they take over and save the day. The book does end on a cliff hanger where you are going “so what happened to X”.
Not sure I’m going to read book 2 as it looks like she loses her memories AGAIN even though she seems to have them just fine at the end of book 1.
