Synopses & Reviews
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 of Weather 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. But The Plan, and The Seems for that matter, would be nothing without the people in it, and that's where Becker Drane comes in. 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 problems? 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(TM) known in (or out of) the Seems to Fix the problem.
Becker Drane knows exactly how The World works
You know the rain we had two weeks ago, or that nightmare you had last night? Becker Drane can tell you exactly who or what was responsible because Becker works as a Fixer for The Seems. From the Department of Weather to the Department of Time, The Seems is the world-behind-our-World, and it keeps everything running smoothly.
But every so often, something goes wrong.
When a Glitch makes its way into the Department of Sleep, Becker is called in for his very first Fixer assignment and hes got to get it right. But this Mission is tricky, and his regular Tools arent up to the test. If Becker doesnt find a Fix fast, he just might lose the coolest job ever—and The World will lose a lot more than a good nights sleep.

About the Author
John Hulme and Michael Wexler accidentally stumbled upon the existence of The Seems after opening an unlocked Door in Wilmington, North Carolina, during the summer of 1995. From that moment on, they were obsessed with the curious realm and sought to pen a book series based on their discovery. Though the project was held up in administrative Red Tape for nearly eleven years, the Powers That Be finally signed off on its release, resulting in the text you now hold.
Hulme lives with his wife, Jennifer, and son, Jack, in a small New Jersey town with crookety sidewalks and tree-lined streets.
Wexlers whereabouts remain unknown.
