The Testing

Joelle Charbonneau

Charbonneau launches her first YA offering, a dystopian trilogy filled with action, romance and intrigue. Sixteen-year-old Cia Vale is one of four teens chosen to represent her small colony at the annual Testing, an intensive mental and physical examination aimed at identifying the best and brightest who will go on to help rebuild their shattered world. Forewarned not to trust anyone, Cia nonetheless forms a partnership and shares an emotional connection with resourceful Tomas. As the Testing pushes its candidates to the breaking point, the body count rises, forcing Cia and her friends to fight for survival.
