Glitch: Lost in Time Book 1 by Brenda Pandos was an intriguing blend of zombie-pocalypse, time travel and dystopian YA genres. Our heroine, Abby, as a result of her leap year birthday, discovers herself to be a glitch in a complex system of parallel universes and time hopping. Her birthday has always caused her problems in the 'system' which tracks everyone's activity, but this time something is really off and the stranger with blue eyes confirms it. Before she knows it, she's evading dystopian dictator governments with secret programs, involuntarily joining rebel groups and finding herself at the mercy of some rather handsome rescuers - each vying for her hand - while trying to prevent a zombie virus outbreak. If it sounds crazy, I assure you, it is.
Now I'm not one for zombie tales at all, but the descriptions were stark enough to be impactful and repulsive, and infrequent enough to keep the book enjoyable. This book centers a little more on world building and relationships so there are some slow parts at the beginning but enough intrigue to keep you going. The second half of the book will have you turning pages so fast you can hardly keep up! Brenda Pandos has an incredible imagination. I haven't even heard of a story with anything close to the plot and elements that Glitch has. Brenda Pandos has woven a fascinatingly complex tale and left us with a cliffhanger that is sure to entice people to follow Abby and become lost in time with her.
