Publisher's Summary

Richard just wanted a girlfriend - not the apocalypse. Richard Peak's senior year is looking painfully ordinary - fighting for position on the soccer team, his parents' constant arguing, a glaring lack of a girlfriend. He can't wait to graduate and join a soccer team overseas, preferably as far from home as possible. Then the president is assassinated and his life changes forever. As an alarming chain of nationwide terrorist attacks trigger a civil war, Richard finds himself on a dangerous journey for survival. As those around him fall prey to hunger, illness, and hatred, Richard must decide between a full stomach and humanity - and somehow create a new society out of the ashes of a fallen world. Richard's Story is the secret journal of the boy eventually founded the New Order Republic of America (NORA). This is an exclusive prequel to the best-selling Numbers Game Saga.

Interesting, but a bit disturbing

Of all the books in the series I liked this one the least. While the content was excellent a lot of it was already covered word for word in the third book. There is new material and it is interesting to get Richard Peak's story in this own words but I was a little disappointed that so much of it was a repeat.

Is it worth listening to? Yes, this book effectively gives the story of the birth of NORA and the numbers system.

The narration is once again excellent. The POV for this story is Richards' but Stacey did such a great job I forgot I was listening to a female narrator!

I received this book free from the narrator/publisher/author in exchange for an honest review.

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

This was a prequel to this series, the start of it all...Richard and others had to suffer in order for things to come to order as they did....Richard was very brave, and endured lots of negative treatment, but vowed to make things better....he lost his entire family, all his friends and was shunned..but he never gave up! Good story and narration....I recommend it if you are a fan of the series!!!

Riveting and emotional from beginning to end

Sets the stage for the other books - would have liked to have read it first
