The Testing

by Joelle Charbonneau

Cia has always hoped she's be chosen for the Testing. It was the only way that she'd get to go to college, the only way to make a better life for herself. But the testing isn't just about making sure only the best and brightest succeed. It has a darker purpose, and Cia will have to figure out how to do more than she thought in order to pass.

The Testing is a well written story about a society which has corralled it's people into neat little pegs. It's fairly typical in it's plotline- you think the government is protecting you, turns out they are not, with a strong female character who has her beliefs challenged and has to survive based on her wits and knowledge. It's a solid read for those who like the dystopians that have been so popular, and will prove engaging for both younger and older teens.

Genre: Dystopian
