29. Test

By: William Sleator
Level: YA

Ann is worried about the man following her on a motorcycle and making threatening gestures. There is a logo on the motorcycle. A boy at school, Lep, wears the same logo on his t-shirt. In addition, the same logo is on the XCAS test. Ann finds out that Mr. Warren makes the XCAS test that every student has to take and owns the apartment building where her father works. Her father is making trouble with the building manager by trying to advocate for the tenants. Ann fears for her family’s safety, as well as Lep’s safety, as Mr. Warren takes an interest in their lives. However, what can two teenagers do against a powerful man like Mr. Warren? When there is enough momentum, you might be surprised. One concern with this novel, are issues in our time may be considered real and not fictionalized to emphasize the good vs. evil nature of the story.
