This review was originally posted on Bookish Things & MoreI never thought I’d find a book that gave me the same feelings I had when I read The Hunger Games. The testing totally gave me that feeling. It has a sort of Hunger Games feel to it, but so much worse. Who would want to be part of a progra...

By far my least favorite dystopian novel. Frustrating and very anti-climatic. I'm sure there are people who will love this series I just have no interest in continuing it. Cia has always wanted to attend The Testing, a well known series that the government leaders choose specific people to attend....

This book reminds of a lot of other books such as The Hunger Games, Under the Never Sky, The Giver, and Divergent, but it is unique in its own way.
