  Imagine the second you're born, a consultant removes you from your mother's grasp and runs a battery of genetic and physiological tests on you. Thirty minutes later they give you a score out of one hundred which denotes your level of perfection. If your score is above eighty and you work hard to maintain that score you will have a charmed life; well fed, well-rewarded, spoiled. But fall below eighty and you're labelled Sub-80,  and life will not be so kind.  
  
  Hannah is adopted by a Sub-80 family when her birth parents choose their social standing over their daughter and endures a life of struggle, hunger and service.  One day Hannah is escorted to the regional government office and told that the Consultant who delivered her, who labelled her Sub-80 got it wrong!  Now she is being relocated back to her birth parents, to live as one of the Ninety-Five,  all medically and legally judged as perfect. Entering this new life Hannah has an impossible decision to make which puts not only hers, but the lives of everyone she cares about at great risk.
  
  The Numbered-  where no one wants to be number one.
