Publisher's Summary

Ruby James has finally made it. As an official Rater, she's reached upper class society and all that comes with it - a huge house in a guarded neighborhood, box seats, and an elite client list. She even has the perfect boyfriend to go with it, one she expects to marry as soon as her career settles.
Then she uncovers a terrible secret. One her boss will do anything to protect.
Now Ruby must decide how much her dreams truly mean to her. Can she remain silent and keep everything she's worked for, or does she dare risk it all to fight for justice?
This is the companion story to Numbers Ignite, book two of the best-selling and award-winning Numbers Game saga. However, as a prequel, it can be listened to at any point in the series.

Grandpa's Daughter

[[[Spoiler Alert if you have not read the first two books in the Numbers Game by Rebecca Rode]]]

What do you do when you realize the system your grandfather created to bring peace to a warring, disorganized nation is flawed? That is the question a young Ruby James faces in this Numbers Game prequel short story.

I definitely enjoyed this Ruby prequel. It is nice to know that she stays true to herself from the start through the time we meet up with her in the series. I adore the Ruby even more now.

Stacey Glemboski’s narration is again wonderful. Her female and male voices are unique in sound and emotions.

I most definitely appreciate the opportunity to read and review this ongoing series and I want to pre-order the next installment now, but sadly it is not listed, yet.

"Keeping the system pure and efficient."

Any additional comments?

Ruby was born into an elite family and had known since she was eight that she wanted to be a rater. Her dream fulfilled unexpectedly early, she had all she ever wanted: a big house, prestige and a boyfriend she loves - until she discovers that not all is as it should be in the perfect society she believed her grandfather had created.
Ms. Glembosci's reading of this story is excellent. Told from Ruby's point of view, the narration is expressive and well placed, increasing the already good picture of Ruby and her inner feelings as she agonises over what to do - hold her tongue and retain all that she has worked for, or risk throwing it all away?
I am grateful to the right's holder who gifted me, via Audiobook Boom, this insightful individual story from the NORA world of the Numbers Game series. Easy to listen to,, it is a stand alone tale which further enhances the longer novels. A recommended YA short.

All too short

Wish there was more..... This elaborates pleasantly on Ruby"s explanation of her status but all too short....
