I had to sign some kind of form at the front of this book before reading it, so I'm not sure if I'm allowed to tell you any of thisâ¦but here goes.
Imagine that The World we know is constructed somewhere else. The sunset is painted daily, the world's rain is regulated through a huge water tank, and a Good Night's Sleep is packaged, processed, and sent to you nightly, with a specially built dream enclosed just for you. Beyond the In-Between, every detail of the world is carefully fashioned by workers in The Seems.
When Becker Drane was nine years old, he filled out an application for âThe Best Job in the Worldâ on a lark. Three years later, he's a newly promoted Fixer for The Seems eagerly awaiting his first mission. However, the one he receives is tougher than mostâto fix a Glitch that is ravaging the Department of Sleep.
The World is in peril as The Chain of Events that depends on the delivery of the night's dreams grows in danger of slipping. Becker must use all of his skills and training to find the Glitch before a Ripple Effect occurs, undoing all of the careful work of The Seems and ripping the very Fabric of Reality away.
Humorous and exciting, this first book left me eager for more from this new series, and you can be sure I'll be reading the rest.
As long as I can get past the red tape next timeâ¦
