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 organisation 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 problems? Or maybe it's The Tide, an underground organisation bent on destroying The Seems? No matter what, Becker's in for 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.
