Ever wondered if the world around you was not as it appeared? That there was something bigger going on you couldn't quite put your finger on? Welcome to The Seems, a secret organisation that makes sure our world keeps running. From weather, to sleep, to nightmares, The Seems is behind everything, keeping things ticking over. Unless there's a Glitch, which is where Becker Drane comes in. Becker has the coolest job of any 7th grader - he works as a Fixer for The Seems. When a Glitch is reported in the Department of Sleep, Becker is dispatched to fix it, but he's not so sure this is a routine mission. Could the Bed Bugs, who are behind our Worst Nightmares, be responsible for the problems? Or maybe it's The Tide, an underground organisation bent on destroying The Seems? No matter what, Becker's in for an adventure, and it'll take all his training, a little luck, and the coolest Tools(t) known in (or out of) The Seems to Fix the problem

Review:

"I loved the ideas behind the Seems. What an amazingly inventive world they have created. It speaks to the little boy in me who always thought there was something going on behind the scenes. Something no one else cared to believe in. This story deals with what I call the magical half of science. That part that makes you marvel at the sheer power of the way things work before you really understand how they work. It's scientific mythology! Scythology? What a wonderful concept! I wanna be a fixer now because nothing else will do." Topher Bradfield, Bookpeople, Austin, TX 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. Amazon.com
