SRP 2011 REVIEW: This odd book seems mainly written because the author enjoys decrying standardized tests. In a dystopian future, two teenagers and their substitute teacher must find a way to expose the corruption of the government, school system, and business world - the corruption whose very basis lies in the standardized testing system. This book is highly appropriate for teens who enjoy books with a little action, a little romance, and a lot of suspense.

SRP 2011 REVIEW: "Test" was quite a suspenseful, fun read. My only complaint is that there was something missing. Something I couldn't quite put into words. Other than that, this is an easy, exciting novel.
