Publisher's Description 
Kyla has been Slated—her memory and personality erased as punishment for committing a crime she can’t remember. The government has taught her how to walk and talk again, given her a new identity and a new family, and told her to be grateful for this second chance that she doesn’t deserve. It’s also her last chance—because they’ll be watching to make sure she plays by their rules.

As Kyla adjusts to her new life, she’s plagued by fear. Who is she, really? And if only criminals are slated, why are so many innocent people disappearing? Kyla is torn between the need to know more and her instinct for self-preservation. She knows a dangerous game is being played with her life, and she can’t let anyone see her make the wrong move . . . but who can she trust when everyone is a stranger?

Debut author Teri Terry has written a brilliantly compelling, original and thought-provoking novel about an uncomfortably plausible future.

  9. Great choice! I read Slated a few weeks ago (since it's already released in the UK). It was a really good book, but I felt like there were loads of unanswered questions. Even so, it's a great read! I hope you enjoy it. :)

  11. This sounds really good! Thanks for putting it on my radar! And for stopping by :-)

  12. Sounds really intense! I'm intrigued by the fact that it's not just specific memory wipe, but everything (since she has to learn to re-walk and talk)! That's some punishment. Thanks for spotlighting it!
