Top Ten Songs Readers Should Listen To While Reading Glaze
“Teenage riot in a public station
Gonna fight and tear it up in a hypernation for you”
2. High and Dry – Radiohead
“You’d kill yourself for recognition,
Kill yourself to never ever stop
You broke another mirror,
You’re turning into something you are not”
3. A World Alone – Lorde
“Maybe the Internet raised us, or maybe people are jerks.”
4. In with the in crowd – The Jam
“When I’m in the crowd, I don’t see anything
My mind goes a blank, in the humid sunshine”
5. Consoler of the Lonely – The Raconteurs
“Conversations getting dull
There’s a constant buzzing in my ears
Sense of humour’s void and numb
And I’m bored to tears”
6. Is there anyone out there – Laura Mvula
“I was young and free then
Like a child I loved to love then
Now there’s nothing left in me but fear I can see the end is all near”
7. Fade into you – Mazzy Star
“I look to you and I see nothing I look to you to see the truth”
8. Strong – London Grammar
“If a lion, a lion roars would you not listen?
If a child, a child cries would you not forgive them?”
9. Let England Shake – PJ Harvey
“The West’s asleep. Let England shake,
weighted down with silent dead.
I fear our blood won’t rise again.”
10. Supremacy – Muse
“You don’t have long
I am on to you
The time, it has come to destroy
Petri Quinn is counting down the days till she turns 16 and can get on GLAZE – the ultimate social network that is bringing the whole world together into one global family. But when a peaceful government protest turns into a full-blown riot with Petri shouldering the blame, she’s handed a ban. Her life is over before it’s even started.
Desperate to be a part of the hooked-up society, Petri finds an underground hacker group and gets a black market chip fitted. But this chip has a problem: it has no filter and no off switch. Petri can see everything happening on GLAZE, all the time. Including things she was never meant to see.
As her life is plunged into danger, Petri is faced with a choice. Join GLAZE… or destroy it.
