    Sixteen-year-old Malencia (Cia) Vale is chosen to participate in The Testing to attend the University; however, Cia is fearful when she figures out her friends who do not pass The Testing are disappearing.
  • Houghton

    In Cia's dystopian society it's an honor to be chosen for The Testing.  But it&;s not enough to pass the Test. Cia will have to survive it.

  • Houghton

    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.
