Review of The Testing-Joelle Charbonneau

This book has been kicking around my library for awhile; I have become tired of dystopian YA fiction and needed a break.  But, I finally read the novel and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Set in a bleak future (natch), the heroine Cia is resourceful under extreme odds.  Undergoing a brutal testing, she learns more than she wanted about fellow teens put under pressure to survive the testing while they feel they have to eliminate the other candidates.  This book is similar to The Hunger Games in its violence against young people but still worth reading.  4 Elves - Highly recommended for older teens
