Waiting on Wednesday: 11/7

I've been avoiding a couple of the more recent dystopians due to genre overload, plus a couple stinkers. This sounds very intriguing, and I think I'm ready to jump back in.

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.

As Kyla adjusts to her new life, she’s plagued by fear. Who is she, really? And if only criminals are slated, why are so many innocent people disappearing? Kyla is torn between the need to know more and her instinct for self-preservation. She knows a dangerous game is being played with her life, and she can’t let anyone see her make the wrong move . . . but who can she trust when everyone is a stranger?

Debut author Teri Terry has written a brilliantly compelling, original and thought-provoking novel about an uncomfortably plausible future.

Slated comes out Jan. 24 2013!
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

  3. This does sound so frightening...and compelling. Thanks for sharing...


  4. Great choice!! I read Slated a few months ago (because it's already released in the UK). I must say, it has one of the most interesting ideas I've ever read! I just LOVE the idea of slating people and the implementation is awesome! My one gripe is that I finished the book with way more questions than answers. Not much really gets resolved. But hopefully that means the second book will be AHMAYZING!!
