Storyboard Description

This scene appears very early on in the novel. In this scene, Charlie is taking a series of mental tests and therapy sessions in order to determine whether or not he will be able to participate in the ongoing experiment at Beekman University. Charlie Gordon is just getting his feet wet, and this is only the beginning of the adventure to come. I chose this scene because this is where it all began for Charlie; this is the make-or-break decision that ultimately determines the course of the novel and the rest of Charlie Gordon's life. The Rorschach test and maze are examples of what Charlie is tested on.
