en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 03 May 2012 – vârsta de la 12 ani
16-year-old Kyla has been 'slated:' that is, all her past memories erased, her personality wiped blank and she has been assigned a new name and even new parents. The government that did this claimed she was a terrorist; but Kyla knows that the government is lying. Without her memories, though, how can she ever find out the truth? A fast-paced dystopian thriller for teen readers.
Teri Terry has lived in France, Canada, Australia and England at more addresses than she can count, acquiring four degrees, a selection of passports and a silly name along the way. Moving constantly as a child, teenager and also as an adult has kept Teri on the outside looking in much of her life. It has given her an obsession with characters who don't belong or find themselves in unfamiliar places, like Kyla in Slated. Teri recently completed a research MA on the depiction of terrorism in YA dystopian fiction.
