She has no other choice but to find out the truth and unlocking her past.
I was so happy to get this book from the UK through the book depository; I do have a slight obsession with UK novels with the covers and their language. When I saw this book on Goodreads, I immediately wanted to have it. So I was glad that I could get buy a copy even though I had to wait awhile
Slated is an amazing book. It is one of my favorite books of 2012. From the beginning this book was griping, I had to take my time because I wanted not to miss anything. It was so amazing to see Kyla’s character evolved into this great heroine. Terry has crafted a great dystopian world. I feel that lately a lot of the dystopian novels have fall flat in some the characters and plots. Slated had a great ended, that not only made me want to read the next but also completed my appetite of the first installment. I cannot wait for the sequel to come out next year.
I give this book 5/5 stars!!!!
