Graduation Day (The Testing Book 3) by Joelle Charbonneau

Graduation Day is the third and final book in the YA dystopian trilogy series The Testing. As if the Seven Stages War wasn't enough, the world is once again going to war, this time, a civil war. The rebel resistance that wants The Testing to end is going to tear apart the government. Cia wants to fight, but the assignment the president gives her is too big to do alone, and she is not sure if she can do it. Cia must decide once and for all who to trust and who to not. The fate of the world depends on it.

Overall, I feel this book is not as great as the other two. Graduation Day had more violence than I thought was necessary. Overall, too many people's lives were taken in the series. It didn't help that the government just lets all the teenagers to the dirty work! (That was funny, though.)

However, I really liked that Cia's brother, Zeen, was back in the story, and he really helped in the end. I also really liked that she lost herself a little bit. She was always a super strong character and the assignment knocks her over. The book showed the element of friendship and how it helps to have someone to count on in situations like this one. The series ended well. It was all wrapped up in the last few pages and was satisfying.

I highly recommend that you read this series!
