Slated (Slated #1)
by Teri Terry
What is it about:
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?
What did I think of it:
This is a cool read.
I liked that even though Kyla knows there's something not right, she's hesitant to act at first. She's well aware of the trouble she might get into and isn't throwing herself headlong into danger. She does act without thinking things through sometimes though.
The future setting was really intriguing, and if there's one point of critique it's that I wanted to know more than was told.
The story itself is suspenseful and with a slow building tension that made me want to keep reading. Slowly things become clearer, and Kyla learns who to trust and who might be a danger. There are some events near the end of the book that force Kyla to make some important decisions, and the book does end with lots of things unresolved, although not in an annoying way.
All in all I very much enjoyed this book and I'll most probably get my trotters on the other books in this series soon.
Why should you read it:
It's a suspenseful and cool Near Future YA read.
