In the series debut The Testing, sixteen-year-old Cia Vale was chosen by the United Commonwealth government as one of the best and brightest graduates of all the colonies . . . a promising leader in the effort to revitalize postwar civilization. In Independent Study, Cia is a freshman at the University in Tosu City with her hometown sweetheart, Tomas—and though the government has tried to erase her memory of the brutal horrors of The Testing, Cia remembers. Her attempts to expose the ugly truth behind the government's murderous programs put her—and her loved ones—in a world of danger. But the future of the Commonwealth depends on her.
This book series is so full of passionate characters determined to do better for generations to come. We are now in the college phase of the testing series, and just when they thought all the testing was over, it truly is not. Though if you think about when in our lives are we not being tested. Life is a test, a test about what you believe, a quiz about how well you parent or do your job. Your reality is always on shaking ground to some degree or another. Do you have the ability to stand up and fight for where you want this world to go?
Cia has been given her study path, and surprisingly it in the government, and what a perfect place for her to be? She is being tested to her limit by being singled out by the president with an overloading course load and impossible tasks. Cia is deep on the political level of what is going on in her world. I am very interested in what is going to be revealed in book 3, Graduation Day.
