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?
Imagine a society controlled by a government who rehabilitate young offenders by wiping clean their memories and mind. But all is not as it seems........ We meet Kayla a teen who has been “slated”, she is re-homed with a new family and has to experience a whole new environment. But Kayla is different, she has flashbacks of memories from her past life. And this is not something that usually happens. In a bid to find out the truth, Kayla must face dangerous times for her and those around her.
It’s been two days since I completed Slated and I am still buzzing about this book. I think it will be one of the top books I’ve read this year.
The books starts off at a fast pace and doesn’t really stop until the end. This book is so worthy of a five out of five stars. It was an absorbing read, I was totally engrossed in this book, so much so that I felt really niggled when anyone disturbed my reading.
I love the main character Kayla, she is a very complex and interesting character. You can’t help but root for her and her quest to find the truth
. I have to say I am very eager for the next in the series; it has certainly whetted my appetite for more. Great story and a great book. I would highly recommend this!
Story Rating: 5/5 - An explosive dystopian roller coaster.Cover Rating - 4/4 - I think this cover is brilliant, very effective. I would certainly stop and take notice of this cover.
