From the Publisher:
It?s graduation day for sixteen-year-old Malencia Vale, and the entire Five Lakes Colony (the former Great Lakes) is celebrating. All Cia can think about?hope for?is whether she?ll be chosen for The Testing, a United Commonwealth program that selects the best and brightest new graduates to become possible leaders of the slowly revitalizing post-war civilization. When Cia is chosen, her father finally tells her about his own nightmarish half-memories of The Testing. Armed with his dire warnings (?Cia, trust no one?), she bravely heads off to Tosu City, far away from friends and family, perhaps forever. Danger, romance?and sheer terror?await.
Reminiscent of the Hunger Games trilogy, THE TESTING is set in a post-apocalyptic world where the Seven Stages War reduced everything to a desolate wasteland. In order to attend University and become part of the treasured few hard at work returning the world to its former glory, hopeful teens must take part in The Testing. Along with three lucky others, Cia Vale is a candidate eager for a brighter future. The physical and mental intensity, not to mention the body count, required by The Testing is meant to separate the few worthy ones from the herd. Cia's treasured childhood friend, Tomas, could be the key to her survival, or the path to failure. This is the first in a trilogy.
