Editorial Reviews

Review

"Amazing! Captivated me from page one. . . It's got the deepness of The Giver, with the excitement of the Uglies series, or the Hunger Games . . . I would recommend this to anyone, literally anyone."
-Kat, Amazon Reviewer

"WOW! I loved this story. From start to finish it was fast-paced with interesting characters." 
-Tina, Amazon Reviewer 

In'Dtale Magazine: "Built on a brilliant, if grim idea, the author reveals twists and turns gradually: building interests and enthusiasm with it! The idea of a number defining your worth, and then it being exposed to everyone's eyes is horrifying, and the breakdown readers see Treena going through illuminates that perfectly. She has been stripped of respect and Numbers Game deals equally with her inner world battlefield of discovering herself again and the outer world one of surviving. . . . Offers new things to the world of YA and there is much to look forward to in the next books."

From the Author

Q: Will you tell us about Numbers Game?
A: Absolutely! In the New Order Republic of America, 16-year-olds are given a Rating, a number that encompasses what they're worth to society. It determines their career, living conditions, and potential partners. This is the story of Treena, who gets a different Rating than the one she earned. She decides to fight for what is rightfully hers, determined to get her boyfriend back in the process.
Meanwhile, she meets Vance, a mysterious prisoner-turned-soldier who has his own agenda. When someone tries to kill Treena--twice--they uncover a dark conspiracy that risks much more than Treena's Rating. 
Q: Great. You probably get this question a lot, but the concept is so unique that I have to ask--where did you get the idea for Numbers Game? 
A: I love this question! My husband sent me to the bank to finalize the loan on the truck he was buying. I looked at my credit score and thought how strange it was that one number was supposed to incorporate everything about me--my purchase history, how reliable I'd been, whether they could trust me to make payments, that sort of thing. And then I thought how strange it was, that we as citizens are so trusting of the accuracy of that little number, and how important it is in our lives. It spiraled from there--what is someone was manipulating the numbers? What if the number included appearance and intelligence rather than just financial history? It didn't take long for the plot to unfold in my mind.
Q: What type of reader would like this book?
A: I tell people that it's like a thriller version of The Scarlet Letter, but set in the future. With bombs. And kissing. Dystopian fans who like DivergentHunger Games, and Matched would love it. 
Q: Who is your favorite character and why?
A: At first, Tali was my favorite. She knows exactly what she wants and doesn't put up with anything. But now that the book is done, I think Vance has overtaken her as my favorite. The way he sees the world and struggles to survive while torn between two worlds really resonates with me. 
Q: What was your favorite part of the writing process? What was the hardest?
A: I really enjoyed taking an idea and running with it. Once I had the world solidified in my head, it was fun to explore all the different aspects of it--political, social, financial, emotional, etc. I wrote myself into a dozen corners because I was just having too much fun. 
The hardest part? Probably the time it took to finish it. When I began writing Numbers Game in 2012, I was also juggling a journalism career and three kids, and then my nonfiction book was accepted for publication, so that took all my remaining hours. When my fourth child was born, everything came to a screeching halt for a while. It wasn't until Numbers Game won first place in a statewide writing contest in that I decided to buckle down and get serious with it. 
Q: Why did you decide to make it a series instead of a stand-alone book? 
A: You know how some authors say that their characters grab hold of the story and steer it in a different direction without their permission? That's kind of what happened here. It just couldn't end with this book. There was so much more that needed to be explored. Besides, Treena had a little more growing to do, and I think you'll love the person that she becomes.
Q: Thanks for joining us. Where can we find out more?
A: Check out the link at the bottom of the book description or on my website. You'll get two novellas for free just for joining my VIP Clan. I also give exclusive deals and insider info to my clan members. They're very special to me and I do my best to show them, so we have a lot of fun!
