Review: The Testing Guide by Joelle Charbonneau

Title: The Testing Guide
Author: Joelle Charbonneau
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Publish Date: April 1st, 2013

It's an honor to be chosen for The Testing. But it's not enough to pass The Testing. Cia will have to survive it.

The Testing Guide is the short story prequel to The Testing, the first novel in the stunning and epic Testing Trilogy.

The Testing Guide is a free prequel novella to The Testing by Jodelle Charbonneau. It's just a short little story about a boy named Zeen who wishes to follow in his father's footsteps and be chosen for the Testing. At the end of the novella there is a brief history of the world of The Testing and how it became what it is in the novel. It's got me excited to see Cia, Zeen's little sister, all grown up and facing being Chosen herself!

I definitely recommend checking this out if you're eager to read The Testing. Not only does it give you a little glimpse into the story, but it also has a few sample chapters of the novel at the end.

  1. This seems cute, but there doesn't seem to have much or anything really exciting about it. However, since you recommend reading it before The Testing, I guess this is a novella worth a try.
