Bluebird is not THE main character, but she is a main character and does have a POV. She is a Black nerd who loves Marvel, Doctor Who, and ships Stormpilot. She has muscular dystrophy. SPOILERS AHEAD: She is not miraculously cured, she does not die, or risk her life to teach an abled hero a lesson. She is well loved by an adorable dork, and has a happy ending that again DOES NOT CURE HER. Thanks for asking a question!(less)

MY GAMER HEART NEEEEDS THIS.

So, is this cover a mock-up for syfy tv shows? or is this a legit cover with no background story and it's just this bad? I need answers.....

Still excited for the book and some *hopefully* positive disability rep!

I'm very lucky to have read this book before its release. It is beautiful. The characters! They are so well written - you wish you could spend an afternoon hanging out with them. Each of the characters has their own battles, and you are cheering for each of them to find their own happily ever after. The world building is amazing, and I think I won't be the only one who wants to step into this virtual world. I cannot recommend this enough!

I was lucky enough to read an early edition of this fantastically creative novel. It was AMAZING. There were so many plot twists and mysteries... I sped through the story because I just HAD TO KNOW what was going to happen.

I’m so excited this story is going to be out in the world soon and I can wait to read the final version!

Hi, yes, I need this immediately.

I'll admit, I wasn't sure what I expected going into this. I have a really hard time with enjoying sci-fi novels. If I have to be more specific, basically anything having to do with video games or space. Why? I have no idea. I love playing video games, but I always find that manga, anime or novels set in that type of world don't interest me. However, I had high hopes for this since I genuinely liked the synopsis. Because of these 2 conflicting thoughts, I had absolutely no idea what I would think af ...more

Shelves: roaring20sdebut, ya
GLITCH KINGDOM is a wild ride. This RPG-inspired YA debut includes multiple layers of rich world-building, deploying a breakneck story-within-a-story structure that will keep you on the edge of your seat to the very end. Sheena Boekweg has conjured up a fantastic premise, but ultimately what hooked me the most were the characters: Dagney, gutsy and resourceful; Ryo, a flirt with hidden depths; sweet, loyal Grigfen; Bluebird/Zoe, the most adorable nerd-girl who also happens to kick ass. I was roo ...more

Thank you edelweiss for the chance to read and review this free copy.

I enjoyed this book! The four star rating isn't because I found anything majorly wrong with it, but it's because I sort of forgot about the book for a while after reading. It didn't latch itself in my mind, like the book I rate 5 stars do. But I enjoyed the positive fat rep and the overall nerdiness of this book quite a lot! It just didn't feel super innovative to me.

I enjoyed the book, but I hope the authors publisher looks at her goodreads. You did this author dirty by giving her this book cover. I almost didn’t read it, even though I love the concept and enjoyed the book. What on earth are you doing over there, Macmillan? This cover is awful

I've just started and this is decent but oh MY that cover is SO, SO, BAD.

Like bad enough that I don't want to put the book in my currently reading poster I keep on my desk at my library, or even post on Goodreads that I'm reading this book.
