The Seems: The Glitch in Sleep

The Glitch in Sleep - John Hulme, Michael Wexler I liked the premise of the book and liked the subtle way it brought up some deep questions, but felt the execution was pretty flawed. It made for choppy and uneven reading out loud and a lot of the key moments in the book were flawed by awkward prose. I read it to Max, now 10 years old, and while he seemed to enjoy it enough, it wasn't nearly as big of a hit as other books we've read together.
