The Testing Guide - Joelle Charbonneau This is a short 45 page prequel to [b:The Testing|13326831|The Testing (The Testing, #1)|Joelle Charbonneau|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1363452191s/13326831.jpg|18534001]. It also includes the first three chapters of the book. Once again, I'm really not sure if this prequel would make me want to go out and purchase the book. The Testing Guide gives a basic backdrop to a world destroyed by war, earthquakes, and bad weather. Resources are limited.
