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.

    Wow! This book was so cool. It was a nice sequel to The Testing, but honestly I preferred the first book. It has a cliffhanger at the end, so I will definitely have to read Graduation Day, the next book. The end was kind of surprising, but that's okay! Some of the parts of this book were a little confusing and didn't really make sense, but I think that the second and third books of trilogies are always more difficult to write and don't always hold the reader's attention as well. I read this book in a couple of days, so I think that means I liked it!

          This is the sequel to The Testing, I believe. Still, this series - I've got to read it!
