Transcript of Slated by Teri Terry
Kyla Davis (name given after treatment)- The novel's narrator and 16-year old protagonist. As is the case with other Slateds, she does not know the reason she was Slated. She is very good at drawing and art,and she also likes to run, which helps keep her emotions level. She is very curious and cautious as to the government and it's power.
In a future world where horrible violence is rampant, young criminals are given a second chance: to have their memories erased rather than being incarcerated or executed.
Kyla Davis has been given a second chance and has been Slated. Her memory erased (as well as her personality), she has been spending months at a hospital learning how to walk and talk.
Ben Nix- 18-year old Slated patient. A friend of Kyla's, who likes to run like Kyla to control his emotion levels. He isn't different in the way Kyla is, but he goes along with her suspicious about the government and aids her in her search for answers.
This book has multiple themes...
Is ones "goodness or "badness" simply the effect of experiences, or are we the results of genetics and biological makeup?
It also brings up the issues of the role in the government protecting it's citizens, free speech, individual rights, controlling emotions, memory and it's role in our personality, and family.
Slated takes place in a dystopian world in futuristic London, in the year 2056.

“Terry’s debut is a suspenseful page-turner with a highly sympathetic and strong female protagonist. A perverse sense of claustrophobic dread grows throughout the novel. . . . Will have readers waiting eagerly for a sequel.”—Booklist
