The Testing Is Now


THE TESTING from our own Joelle Charbonneau launches today. We couldn't be more excited here at DSD HQ, as this sucker is gonna be frickin huge.

Congrats to Joelle. Check out the prequel and then go order your copy.

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.

Read “The Testing Guide,” an exclusive prequel story to The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau, out on June 4th from Houghton Mifflin.

Oh - and you still have the vintage cover. We are on cover number 3 - which is still blue and very shiny!
