Teri Terry

Teri Terry has lived in France, Canada, Australia and England at more addresses than she can count, acquiring three 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 like Kyla in Slated, who don't belong or find themselves in unfamiliar places.

Teri recently left her job with Buck's libraries in England to write full-time and complete her research MA on the depiction of terrorism in recent young adult dystopian literature.

Slated has been shortlisted in the UK for the North East Teenage Book Award and the Leeds Book Award, and was the most voted for YA title in the 2012 Edinburgh Book Festival Anobii First Book Award.

In this suspenseful, gripping novel, teen twin girls raised separately meet for the first time at their mother’s funeral. Quinn has been trained to never tell a lie. Piper is a practiced liar. Narrated in both voices, the story of their quest to learn truths that have been concealed from them is shadowed by a dark spell that beckons them to run at night with a pack of murdering ghost hounds. Suspense, menace, mystery, witchcraft, family secrets, mistaken identity, and romance are interwoven in a brilliantly written page-turner that will grab and thrill teen readers.

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.
