Graduation Day (The Testing #3)

Graduation Day (The Testing) - Joelle Charbonneau

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!



Holy Crap! Now THAT is what you call a finale!
There are no words to explain how excited I was to get my hands on this book. I absolutely loved the first two installments in this action-packed, phenomenal YA dystopia series. With themes of The Hunger Games and Divergent I couldn't help but just adore this series. I have been dying to get my hands on the finale and to see how it was all going to end. Joelle is definitely does not fit into the 'great series, not to great finale's' category. Graduation Day was utterly amazing.

Cia has fought so much and came so far but the deadliest test is still to come. Faced with an impossible task Cia knows that she needs help... but who can she trust? While everyone is keeping secrets from each other Cia knows trusting the wrong person can mean not only the failure of her mission but death but she has no other choice. She needs allies to complete her mission... and that's if she can even complete it.

Cia is one of the strongest most amazing heroine's I have ever come across in YA novels. She is so smart and really thinks everything through before making a decision. It's so refreshing to have a heroine who is crazy smart and trusts her intellect. I loved that.

Tomas... oh Tomas. I just love him. He is such an amazing character and even though there are moments where you don't know his intentions he always comes true in the end. His loyalty to Cia is awesome.

Graduation Day is an explosive and incredible finale to the series that had me turning the pages as fast as I possibly could. I couldn't put it down and was constantly sat on the edge of my seat dying to know what was going to happen. I loved every single second of this book and it completely blew me away. I really wasn't sure how much it was going to live up to how much I loved the first two installments but it totally excelled them. It was utterly phenomenal. I really hope that Joelle decides to write a spin-off of this series as I would love to know what happened after the conclusion of Graduation Day but if she doesn't then it was the perfect ending regardless. The Testing series will continue to be one of my favourite dystopia series ever and I know I will read it again and again.
