Publisher's Summary

In this companion story to Numbers Game, Chan Norwell comes from the perfect citizen family. His mother is chief of the city monitor force, his brother an all-star, and his sister a prodigy - which leaves little wiggle room for a nobody like Chan. He is determined to have his time in the spotlight at last. But he doesn't expect things to go so horribly wrong. Alone, dishonored, and humiliated, Chan can only see one way out.
When he meets Maizel, a brilliant redhead determined to follow in her mother's suicidal footsteps, he sees his life for what it really is. If Chan can find the courage to try one more time - if he can save Maizel - maybe there's a chance he can also save himself.

POOR CHAN!! BEING AVERAGE IS NOT A BAD THING!!

Where does Chan's Story rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was a good novella...it really touched my heart, I hate this rating system!

I cant...its unique!

He was good, I liked him!

I did its short! lol


Any additional comments?

Chan comes from a high green family...his parents expect a lot from him, and are very hard on him. When he is rated yellow on his rating day, they disown him, and when he goes to kill himself by jumping off a well known building, he meets Maizel...and she gives him the courage to go on...he saves her, and ultimately saves himself! This rating system is horrible and I hope in book 3 they find away to end it!

Numbers Game

Any additional comments?

Nice little short entertaining addition to the Number's Game series.

What happens when you don't measure up to someone else's standards.

Even though this is set in Rebecca Rode's Numbers World the moral of the story is so much more. Even though we don't do it with numbers there is such a drive in this world to always be better than the next guy. Disappointment is something we all face at one time or another. How you handle and adjust to your changing world is something we all face.

Chan's story is another take on how a person reacts on their rating day when they do not get the number they are expecting to get. How it affects their life, how they react, how their family and society react. Then finally coming to terms with their new reality.

Although with novella's this short I would rather they be at the beginning or end of a full length book depending on where they fit into the series.

Anthony Lee did a really good job with the narration. Perfect voice for Chan. Pleasant voice. Clearly spoken with a smooth even pace. Good character voices. Very enjoyable.
