Independent Study (Hardcover)
Chris's February 2014 Staff Pick: Independent Study is the second book in the in the “The Testing series”. Cia now has to come to terms with the actions that she had to take to pass and how to use them to pass the next test at the university. Who are her friends and how far will she be able to take her relationship with Thomas. This is a great second book and keeps you reading and wanting more from books three.— From Chris's Picks
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.
