The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau

The Testing
by Joelle Charbonneau [YA Charbonneau]
Cia Vale has dreamed her whole life of being chosen as a Testing Candidate. Those who are selected as candidates during the high school graduation ceremony have the chance to show they would be good candidates to go to the University. Only those who will bring innovation and success to society are chosen. Cia is chosen, and the night before she leaves her family (likely forever), her father tells her what he remembers of his testing, and about the blackouts he also has about the testing. His advice is to trust no one.
The testing begins, and Cia learns herself that what is at stake should she fail a test. And the tests are getting harder. This Dystopian novel is a Golden Sower Nominee for 2015-2016.
