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.
Publishers Weekly Review

What an amazing read! I was hesitant to begin reading this, when I received the ARC. I loved The Hunger Games and was thinking this might be a knockoff attempt....boy, was I mistaken in that assumption. A thoroughly engrossing first in the trilogy, making me yearn for the next installment.
As a bookstore manager, I read or peruse thousands of books. The Testing has to be my favorite YA book of the year so far!
This is amazing. Like I need the second book before I die of anxiety. Read it, please, it is SOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!
This book was amazing. I loved everything about it. It reminded me of the hunger games and the giver. I loved both those books. In a way, it was the perfect book for me. Can't wait for the next book! This book was just right to help me feel a little older as I'm going in to 7th grade. It was romantic, full of interesting action and overall amazing, highly recommended :)
