What do you do, when you suddenly have super-natural powers that seem pretty limitless? Apparently, in Test's world, you just try to fly under the radar and not cause trouble...after impressing the girl of your dreams, and your best friend, of course.
After some unfortunate accidents occur from his new powers, Test is thrown into a world of running, survival, and searching for answers. With the help of friends, both old and new, he sets out to figure out the secret behind his past, and try to figure out a future that doesn't include being a lab rat, or prison.
With good writing that flows well, this fast paced story keeps you on your toes until the last page, and leaves you wanting more. It is a story I think any guy can relate to, and any girl will enjoy. I'd recommend it to any YA fan.

summary: test isnt normal, he has powers, dangerous powers, and a dangerous temper. he'll need his friends to help keep him in check, and help him out of trouble.
review: amazing, i absolutely love it. there's some editing kind of problems. words may disapear just flip the page back and forth they'll show up. some spots dont connect and get confusing, but sort out. that's about it for problems, though one character i find very annoying, nicole, she starts off as a popular girl and pretty much treats test like a yoyo. othersiwe it's pretty great some words and reactions are a bit awkward, but it hardly matters with the wonder of the story. i've been devouring this series taking about a day or less really for at least one of the books. it's set to sit at the top of my fav list. i even got the novellete that follows cliffs life, i read a clip of it and loved it. so in short: i love it! i got the first ebook free i encourage you to try and catch this fantastic read ^.^
rating: 4.9 (docking a little for editorial problems you know to be fair)
Good kid + super power x conflict + angst = fun read.
This was a great story and it was exciting to get to know Test and all the characters that featured in the book.
It was reminiscent of The Hulk, in the sense that here you have an unassuming 'normal' young adult, and when feelings he can't control get in the way, he turns out of control and can do real harm. Minus the green skin mind you!
I did have difficulty with everyone that knew Test being frightened about his powers. I thought that was a bit over the top. The author clearly showed the reader that Test was just a freaked out about what was happening with him as were everyone else! Test tried to think of others feelings, but the same courtesy wasn't extended back to him. Cliff I though was a great counterbalance and father figure that Test needed.
I wanted to find out more about his mother too. I think I will have to read the rest of the series!
Take a chance on this one!
While there are many vampire novels to choose from, Failing Test stands on its own merits as a coming-of-age story mixed with a wonderful what-if scenario, proving that while Test is in some ways super human, he is also just as vulnerable as the rest of us, and pain is pain, even to someone who can easily throw cars and pulse his way around the world. I would love to see this character five years down the road when he has finally come to terms with who he is. Something tells me his world will be better for having him in it.
