Audible Editor Reviews

Oliver Wyman's sparkling, enthusiastic performance is a perfect match for Josh Hulme and Michael Wexler's wonderfully imaginative and beautifully realized fantastical young adult novel about 12-year-old Becker Drane, a "fixer" for the Seems, the clandestine organization that works behind the scenes to ensure that all aspects of the world, including time and weather, run according to "The Plan".

Oliver Wyman's warm, nimble delivery turns this humorous, unpredictable, and action-packed tale into a must-listen for children of all ages and adults with an affinity for the works of J. K. Rowling or Douglas Adams.

Publisher's Summary

Ever wonder where your dreams come from? Or what caused those 10 inches of rain last Tuesday? Or who picks the color of autumn leaves? Brecker Drane knows, because he knows about The Seems. And soon you will, too.

The Seems is the world responsible for making our world work. From the Department of Weather to the Department of Time, The Seems keep everything running - just the way we like it.

But every so often, something goes wrong, and a Fixer is sent in to take care of the problem. On Becker's very first Mission, a Glitch crops up in the Department of Sleep, and Becker quickly realizes that this is no routine assignment. Is it a mechanical breakdown in the Dreamatorium? Or perhaps it's The Tide, an underground organization bent on destroying The Seems...and taking over the world.

Being a Fixer may be the coolest job ever, but it's no walk in the park. And Becker is sure hoping that his first Mission won't be his last.
