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?

"Keeping the system pure and efficient."
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.
