Author Description:

In book three of the Testing series, the United Commonwealth wants to eliminate the rebel alliance fighting to destroy The Testing for good. Cia is ready to lead the charge, but will her lethal classmates follow her into battle?

She wants to put an end to the Testing
In a scarred and brutal future, The United Commonwealth teeters on the brink of all-out civil war. The rebel resistance plots against a government that rules with cruelty and cunning. Gifted student and Testing survivor, Cia Vale, vows to fight.

But she can't do it alone.
This is the chance to lead that Cia has trained for - but who will follow? Plunging through layers of danger and deception, Cia must risk the lives of those she loves--and gamble on the loyalty of her lethal classmates.

Who can Cia trust?
The stakes are higher than ever-lives of promise cut short or fulfilled; a future ruled by fear or hope--in the electrifying conclusion to Joelle Charbonneau's epic Testing trilogy. Ready or not…it's Graduation Day.

The Final Test is the Deadliest!

Fallon's Review:

I love this political dystopian world created by the effects of war. This explores our very nature and if people can learn from their mistakes. I also liked the science fiction feel the book had. Here are my favorite quotes from Graduation Day and I tried to pick ones without spoilers.

* "I must keep calm. In control.This is the most important test I have faced thus far in my life. Too much is riding on the correct answer. I can not fail."

* "Trust no one, Cia. It's not just your life but also the lives of many others that depend on that."

* "When you trust me with your secrets, I'll trust you with mine."

* "I press myself against Thomas, feeling the warmth of his body seep into mine."

* "The only thing we can do is learn from the mistakes made and make sure we don't make the same ones in the future." 

* "Two lightning bolts. Two teams. The end of ignorance. The beginning of hope."

Just Finished Graduation Day by Joelle Charbonneau. Who needs sleep!!!! I am going to have a huge book hangover after this one. I do not even know what to say. I loved it. It was emotional, tense, thought provoking. I love the message portrayed throughout the trilogy. This was so consistent with an unexpected ending that I loved. Their are very few series you walk away feeling satisfied and this was one of them. I am giving this book 5 out of 5 stars. A must read.
