Slated – Terry, Teri

9/10

Slated

Synopsis

Kyla’s memory has been erased, her personality wiped blank, her memories lost for ever. She’s been Slated. The government claims she was a terrorist, and that they are giving her a second chance – as long as she plays by their rules. But echoes of the past whisper in Kyla’s mind. Someone is lying to her, and nothing is as it seems. Who can she trust in her search for the truth?

Overview *Contains Spoilers*

This book was slightly confusing to begin with but having finished it, I feel that this adds to the overall mysterious atmosphere of the book. Kyla has been Slated and she doesn’t know who she is or what she was before her memories were taken so the reader is able to empathise with her because they don’t know what is going on either. There is something not quite right about Kyla as her Levo (the wristband everyone who is Slated wear until they are 21 to knock them out if they get too angry or upset) doesn’t seem to work. It drops when she is distressed but her levels stay the same when she is angry. Towards the end of the book, others start noticing and she has to mask the obvious by running and drawing to pretend that she is normal.

I would highly recommend this book to those who love mystery and dystopian future books; this is a definite ‘to be read’ book by the author of ‘Mind Games’.
