Title: Failing Test
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary Fantasy
Synopsis:
You know him, but you can't remember his name. He is the one that is always there, in the background, all but invisible to those roaming the hallways. What if he had a secret? What if it was a secret that even he didn't know?

Test Davis has always been a blur to those around him. He's a shadow like a million other kids--not smart enough for the academic team, not beast enough for the football team, not extroverted enough for the drama crowd. In all things Test is just...not, which is why no one ever notices him.

But what happens when someone does notice him-- Nicole Paxton, a cheerleader, no less? What happens on the night that Test finds out there's nothing average about him and that a powerful gift has been hidden within, secretly waiting to be set free and alter his life forever? The question is, will that power save him and those he loves or tear them apart?

The story of Test Davis pulled me in right away.  I became absorbed into what was going on with him, would he wind up with Nicole, would he and his mother mend their tenuous relationship?  To be honest the book was a little heavy on the description, which made it somewhat long as well.  I was grateful that the story was as strong as it was.  The character of Cliff, who comes towards the later portion of the book was fantastic.  Overall, I enjoyed it and would give it 3 swaks.
