The gripping first installment of the Slated trilogy, perfect for fans of Divergent and Legend

Kyla’s memory has been erased, her personality wiped blank, her memories lost forever. She’s been slated. The government claims that she was a terrorist and they are giving her a second chance—if she plays by their rules. But scenes from the past haunt her as she tries to adjust to a new life, family, and school, leaving her unsettled. Who is she really? And if only criminals are meant to be slated, why are so many other teens disappearing? As she and her friend Ben seek answers, Kyla is torn between the need to know more and her instinct for self-preservation.

"Excellent. . . . Kyla's erased memory works wonderfully as a storytelling device." —io9

"A perverse sense of claustrophobic dread grows throughout the novel. . . . Will have readers waiting eagerly for a sequel.” —Booklist

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best book series I've read When I first got this book I didn't expect much, but when I read it, my visions on it changed. It's filled with great characters and it has a thickening plotline. This book is perfect for whoever loves thrillers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected This book is better than I expected, considering the author has the same first and last name. I didn't hold out much hope, as everyone and their brother seems to be writing dystopian series nowadays. However, this book surprised me. It had twists that I didn't see coming, and steadily held my attention. The main character is genuine, and you grow with her. All in all, a great read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hmmm Well, It was really easy to get into this book, however many of the supporting characters fell a little flat. All the intrigue going on and yet hardly anything gets answered by the end makes it a frustrating read. I am not sure if I'd want to read the next book unless it actually gives some answers. The story plateaued fast and didn't get exciting til nearly the very end. A bit disappointing all around.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for SLATED“Terry’s world is remarkably like today’s. . . . The romance and politics keep suspense ratcheted up. Intriguing—readers will be on tenterhooks for the next one.”—Kirkus Reviews  “Terry’s debut is a suspenseful page-turner with a highly sympathetic and strong female protagonist. A perverse sense of claustrophobic dread grows throughout the novel. . . . Will have readers waiting eagerly for a sequel.”—Booklist“Building on an intriguing concept . . .What truly makes this novel stand out from the dystopian pack, though, is the well-crafted suspense. . . . Readers will anxiously await sequels to come.”—BCCB“Debut author Terry’s . . . treatment of medically induced amnesia is intriguing.”—Publishers Weekly"Even if you're sick of teenage dystopias, this paranoid mind-wiping novel will thrill you. . . . Excellent. . . . Kyla's erased memory works wonderfully as a storytelling device."—io9
