Becker Drane's still got the coolest job in The World, but it's getting harder and harder to live a normal life outside of The Seems. He's always working, getting pulled out of bed to go Fix, and his Me-2 spends more time with his family than he does. And even though it's completely against the Rules, he can't stop thinking about Jennifer Kaley, the totally cool girl he met during his Mission in Sleep.Things don't get any easier when a bomb explodes in the Department of Time, and Becker is called in to take over for a more senior Fixer who disappeared during the Mission. With so many lives at stake, it's his toughest Fix yet. Becker finds himself going places in The Seems he never knew existed - and meeting people long thought dead. Yep, it's just another day in the life of Becker Drane. Let's hope he lives to Fix again.... Download and start listening now!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 10/13/2013

    " Becker Drane works as a Fixer for the Seems. The Tide creates a Time bomb and it is up to Chiappa, Becker, Tom Jackal and a briefer to keep the World from being destroyed. Becker wants to contact Jennifer from his first mission. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 5/4/2013

    " 3.5, really. A very enjoyable sequel, with the same zany humor as the first book, but not quite as strong as the first in some ways. Will review on Finding Wonderland eventually. "

    " Listening to this series on audio with my 8-yr-old and we both love it and look forward to opportunities to listen together. Not for serious sci-fi/fantasy fans, but entertaining for kids and amusing for adults. "

    " I enjoyed this a lot better than a Glitch in Sleep. Although I am super excited about the world and its inhabitants. I do love the concept that there are people out there who make the world what it is and insure that we keep getting up everyday. A fun read when nothing else comes your way. "
