Twelve-year-old Becker Drane has definitely got the coolest job of any seventh grader in Highland Park, New Jersey. He works as a Fixer for The Seems. From the Department ofWeather to the Department of Sleep, The Seems is a secret organization that makes sure our world keeps running-and more importantly, sticks to The Plan that's been made for it. 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 problem?

Or maybe it's The Tide, an underground organization bent on destroying The Seems? No matter what, Becker's in for quite an adventure, and it'll take all his training, a little luck, and the coolest Tools™ known in (or out of) The Seems to Fix the problem.

JOHN HULME and MICHAEL WEXLER are the editors of Voices of the Xiled, a short story collection for adults, and authors of other works of adult nonfiction. Michael and John both live in the New York City area.

From AudioFile:

Oliver Wyman delivers a thoroughly engaging narration of this futuristic tale. Twelve-year-old Becker Drane is selected for Òthe best job in the worldÓ: being Òa FixerÓ at The Seems. The Seems, unbeknownst to humans, is the company responsible for building the world we live in and includes the Departments of Weather, Time, and Sleep. Becker lives in the earthly world until heÕs called upon for his first Fixer mission: to fix a glitch in the Department of Sleep. Wyman masterfully reads this witty and adventurous story. His voice is clear and his enunciation, precise. He succeeds beautifully in characterizing people of different ages and backgrounds, complete with wonderful foreign accents (Australian, French, etc.). Ample pauses bring forth the suspense of the story. N.A.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
