(Book Beat Press Release, June 13, 2014)

Book Beat and the Southfield Public Library are proud to host YA author Joelle Charbonneau at the Southfield Public Library (26300 Evergreen Rd, Southfield, MI 48076) on Thursday, June 19 from 6:30-8:30pm to promote the conclusion of her best-selling The Testing series, Graduation Day YA and adult readers too.

This is a great way to kick off your summer reading; a suspenseful thriller you’ll quickly devour. We hope seed010_todd_blakenshipyou’ll join us. This event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event courtesy of Book Beat. This signing will be the first to honor the books release.

About the book: It’s graduation day for sixteen-year-old Malencia Vale, and the entire Five Lakes Colony (the former Great Lakes) is celebrating. All Cia can think about—hope for—is whether she’ll be chosen for The Testing, a United Commonwealth program that selects the best and brightest new graduates to become possible leaders of the slowly revitalizing post-war civilization. When Cia is chosen, her father finally tells her about his own nightmarish half-memories of TheNew Harvest Homes NHH Testing. Armed with his dire warnings (”Cia, trust no one”), she bravely heads off to Tosu City, far away from friends and family, perhaps forever. Danger, romance—and sheer terror—await.

Joelle Charbonneau is a storyteller at heart. She has performed in a variety of operas, musical theatre and children’s theatre productions across the Chicagoland area. In addition to her stage work, Joelle has also performed with several bands and worked as a solo performer. She is the author of the Rebecca Robbins (Minotaur Books), the Glee Club Paige Marshall (Berkley) mysteries and the YA The Testing trilogy (The Testing, Independent Study and Graduation Day Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children’s).
