      Pass, and have it madeófail, and suffer the consequences. A master of teen thrillers tests readersí courage in an edge-of-your-seat novel that echoes the fears of exam-takers everywhere.

    Ann, a teenage girl living in the security-obsessed, elitist United States of the very near future, is threatened on her way home from school by a mysterious man on a black motorcycle. Soon, she and a new friend are caught up in a vast conspiracy of greed involving the megawealthy owner of a school testing company. Students who pass his test have it made; those who donít disappear . . . or worse. Will Ann be next?

    For all those who suspect standardized tests are an evil conspiracy, hereís an edge-of-your-seat thriller that really satisfies.
