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 …

Quotes & Awards

  • “This clever fantasy…is creative, funny, and refreshingly unambiguous…Drane is brought engagingly to life by Oliver Wyman. He keeps the story moving at a brisk pace and does a superb job crafting distinctive vocal personalities for the cast of international characters. His energetic portrayals of teenagers reflect all the outrage and vehemence of adolescents whof ully comprehend the dire straits the world is in. This performance is great for family listening—a witty plot with lots of amusing puns is delivered with style and panache.”


  • “Continues to develop a truly ingenious setting while proving every bit as much of a nail-biter as the first.”


  • “Hilarious wordplay…idiomatic expressions, puns, and figures of speech propel the plot along at a manic pace as Becker falls in love, tries to follow the Rules, and narrowly escapes annihilation. A delightful cast of noble and nefarious characters adds to the fun.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Becker is a likable protagonist who manages to keep his sense of humor in the darkest of times, which keeps the plot line from becoming too intense…Does not disappoint, and [The Split Second] will charm action-adventure, fantasy, and mystery lovers alike.”
