Have a character in Slated no. 3 named after you!


Today is UK publication day for Fractured: yippee!!!!!!!!


To celebrate? Here is the news I've been hinting at but amazingly managed to keep to myself:


How would you like to have a character in the third and final book of the Slated trilogy named after you?

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment, below! This is open for a month - it closes 4th May at noon (UK time). Tell me your name you are entering - it is okay to use your middle name or nickname if you want to.


Five winners will be chosen at random using a random number generator. All five will win a copy of Fracturedif they are in the US or Canada, it'll be a US proof of Fractured as being published by Nancy Paulsen Books in September; anywhere else and it'll be a UK edition of Fractured as published today by Orchard Books. And one of the five will be chosen to have a character named after them in book 3 of the Slated series.


Don't forget to check back after May 4 to see if you won! If you have, to get your copy of Fractured you'll need to tell me where to send your book on the contact form of this website.


The fine print:

  • This is open internationally.
  • I can't use a name that is the same or very similar to any of the other character names already in the books. For example, if your name is Kyla or Kylie, you might want to use your middle name instead.
  • Nicknames are OK as long as they aren't rude or ridiculous!
  • The character will be a secondary character, but I can't tell you much more than that: which character I use the winner's name for will depend a little on the name chosen, and which character it seems to fit. 
  • this closes 4th May noon (UK time).

    Hi Teri, wow this is so exciting and such a great idea. My name is Nora Elisabeth, nickname Panda... please don't use Panda, it will be a little bit silly....except if Kyla is going with the sketching class to draw animals again and there is a Panda, that she wants to sketch :D *joking*. I haven't read Fractured yet, it is not released in South Africa yet. I loved Slated, read it 3 times. As much as I do not want these book series to end, I cannot wait to read the next two books. Great job, Teri; way to go! <3

    Ahhhh this would be absolutely amazing! I loved reading Fractured, you had it sent to me early and it was AWESOME!
    My name is Jessica-Isabella which is a double barrelled first name; Isabella after my great gran and also because I'm quarter Italian (on my dad's side) but IF I won, you could call the character Jess or Izzy or Bella or ANYTHING :D

  • #31

    Becky Earl (Thursday, 04 April 2013 16:56)

    Love your books, so this is awesome. My full name is Rebecca Earl, but most people call me Becky. My nickname is Barmy Bex, which would be quite cool. :) looking forward to reading Fractured.

  • #32

    Em Boscart (Thursday, 04 April 2013 17:18)

    Waouh ! It would be so great ! I was going to ask if 'open internationally' really means internationally or just english speaking countries as I am French but I guess I should wait to know who the winners are ! (and it ends in a month and I am still in Sheffield, UK for the next two months so I might still be using this address rather than the french one when the books will be sent)
    So my full name is Emeline Fabienne Frédérique but you should be made aware that Fabienne is more for middle-aged women nowadays. Here in Sheffield I have to write my name, Emeline, for people to see how to pronunce it as they don't get it when I say it, so I tell them to just call me Em. About a nickname, there is Pom, which became Apl in English Class and Manzana in Spanish Class ^^

    Luna Miller (Thursday, 04 April 2013 20:54)

    Hi Teri your books are amazing, i love the mystery you wish to uncover as you read slated and after you have finished fractured you understand almost everything about Kylas old life before being slated, the only thing that you think about after you have read fractured is will kyla go back home? or will she find her old family? What will happen next? I can't wait for the next book!!!

  • #37

    Bridgett (Thursday, 04 April 2013 21:22)

    Hello Teri,
    Thank you for this contest, an wow Slated is an awesome book. I can't wait to read Fractured when it comes out in the U.S.
    I just finished slated and thought I would check out the web site. My nick name is Gus, and my middle name is snow, but that might be weird to put as a name in the book.:) Slated was a awesome mix of mystery, love,. so yeah I hope you can use my name in your book it would be so sweet. Thought if you don't I still can't wait to be able to read the second and third book by you. :)

  • #38

    Luna Miller (Thursday, 04 April 2013 21:40)

    Vanessa Assibey (Thursday, 04 April 2013 23:40)

    I know my name is a common British name, and doesnt sound dystopian like, but i adore this saga! I'd love to be named after a character in the book. I wish I saw this earlier to be i the competition but i am to revise for exams in May! Good Luck to the contestants and to Teri to the success of the book!

  • #43

    Janine D'Angelo (Friday, 05 April 2013 00:28)

    This is a lovely idea to have your readers involved in such a way. It would be a great honour to have my name as part of your storyline. My name is Janine, but friends call me Neenie.

  • #44

    Molly (also know as Bish) (Friday, 05 April 2013 00:37)

    Just wanted to say I love your book slated so much. It's hard to find a proper good these days and you have filled the gap!!!! Thank you!!!!!
    My name is Molly Anna-Mae Bishop but I get called Bish due to my surname! To get picked would be a HUGE honour :)

    I spent an entire day reading both books the other weekend (I accidentally won Fractured early on a blog when I was supposed to win Slated XD) and I love them :D
    My name's Becca (short for Rebecca) :) I can't remember if there are any characters with names like that already...perfect reason to re-read ;D But if there is a character with a similar name, my middle name is Jane :)
    Thankyou for the opportunity, good luck everyone! :D

It's also on my favorite books bookshelf :D One of few series and novels to be put there, I love this book so much you do not understand! I would really like my name to be entered, it's Hira and it's arabic if you want any background on it :P, and I don't think there are any similar names in it but hopefully not! Can't wait to get Fractured soon :D

  • #51

    Luna Miller (Friday, 05 April 2013 14:29)

    Please use my name Luna is so original and not l like any of the other names in the books I think my name would fit really well in the book as maybe a girl she meets and she is all nice but then Kyla realises she is against her trying to keep her away from the people that love her. I dunno maybe she could be a really close friend from her life before. By the way I think for the book title I think you should use "Lost"!!!! It's an awesome name Nd fits perfectly with Kyla and what she is doing.

  • #52

    Erin (Friday, 05 April 2013 19:30)

    This is such a lovely idea for a competition. I would love for either my first name, Erin or my middle name, Elise to be used.
    Looking forward to the book! :)

  • #53

    Luna Miller (Friday, 05 April 2013 23:57)

    My name is Annalyse (evidently), which is French. It means graceful satisfaction. I have several nicknames, Anna and Annie being two of them, which are both rather plain. My other nicknames are Lyssie and Lyse, which in my opinion, are a bit more interesting than Anna or Annie. I love both of your books and I can't wait for the next one. Thank you so much for writing them, they have changed my life.

    Bec Jones (Sunday, 07 April 2013 09:02)

    I love this series! The synopsis really drew me in and, for me, it creates an interesting and readable mix of mystery and political totalitarianism. Kind of like a more mystical version of 1984!!! I would love to have a character named after me in the 3rd book :-)

  • #77

    Lynn (Sunday, 07 April 2013 13:15)

    Hi Teri! I absolutely ADORE your books! I've already finished fractured :P Cat is my nickname ('cause I don't like my full name all that much) but Catriona is my full name and it means Pure. It would be the most amazing thing in the world if I got a character named after me in the third book, but I really don't mind as long as it comes out!

  • #81

    Ellise (Sunday, 07 April 2013 15:57)

    Hi Teri! I absolutely LOVED Slated - i've not put it down since I got it last year, It never gets boring despite the re-reads, and being half way through Fractured I can tell its going to be just the same!
    Many of my friends call me Ella, since I'm not too keen on my full name - Obviously it'd be awesome to have a character named after me, but I'm more excited to read what you write next!

    Tamika (Monday, 08 April 2013 04:07)

    I loved Slated, I read it within a day and a half; I don't think I put it down much, only a few times which were the times I needed to eat or use the bathroom. I was honestly hooked, best book I've read in a long time; still at the top of my list. I'm currently waiting for Fractured to be delivered to my home and I'm more than excited to read it! If you used the name Tamika in book number three I would be ever so happy; I'd probably freak. Aha. Thank you. :)

    Millie (Monday, 08 April 2013 11:32)

    When I read Slated, I honestly thought it was the best book I have ever read. I read it whilst in hospital and without that book I would've been so bored I probably could've cried! It ended too soon, I thought! I'm getting the second book today on my Kindle hopefully! I actually read the first book and started drawing how I would imagine the characters and scenes (you might have seen my pics on my mum's facebook page, Nina W.) And I can't wait to read the next book!!

    Hi! I'm a huge fan of Slated and Fractured! I convinced all my friends to read the books- and my family! The other day I got home and my gran was actually talking to the book, saying "CAM! HOW COULD YOU?! SHE TRUSTED YOU!" Can't wait for the third book.

    I think this is a great idea. I've never heard of any other books of this calibre offering such a great opportunity as having your name used as a character in a book. There's plenty of books for very young children where you can pay to have this done. I love the idea & I loved Slated, will be getting Fractured at the weekend. I am called June or Junie. Thank you. x

Now I don't know how I'm going to wait all this time for the 3rd book! I've read a lot of dystopian fiction but this is by far the best. Move over Suzanne Collins!

    Isley (Saturday, 13 April 2013 07:26)

    Hey Teri,
    I wanted to propose my little sister's name in this contest. I bought Slated for myself when it first came out and I liked it so much that I made my little sister read it and she loved it too. My sister's name is Lily and her middle name is Asha. I've always loved both names as well as the way they sound together.I think the name Asha could really work in the series as it is slightly unusual and I think it is very powerful.
    We haven't managed to buy Fractured yet (we live in a rural area) but we are both looking forward to reading it when we can finally get our hands on it!

    I thoroughly enjoyed Slated and I have just started reading Fractured and I'm so glad that I found them. I walked into Waterstones, saw a copy on the table and thought it looked like it might be a good read but I'm so glad I did pick it up! I would feel so honoured and privileged to have a character named after me and I thank you for giving this opportunity! My name is Clio and it would be so great if you could use it! :)

  • #205

    Clio Renée Clark (Tuesday, 16 April 2013 21:28)

    Just forgot to put in my entry - my middle name is Renée so if you wanted to use that instead of Clio its there? I wouldn't get too fussed about the accent on the 'é' thought as I never use it (I asked my French teacher where it was meant to go a couple of days ago) It is meant to be there, but I would never remember! However what you do with my name is up to you! I would try and persuade you to use 'Clio' but if it ends up in the top five you will either feel like it fits or it doesn't so it's up to you! I am just so excited for this opportunity and this is such an amazing prize! I wish you the best in writing the third book and just hope my name will be used in it! ;)

I just couldnt put it down, and found Kyla a very intregueing character, and her relationship with Ben so fantastic! When it came to the end of the book, my heart sank and was desperate to find out what happened next! So i am very very excited about fractured!

    Faith (Friday, 26 April 2013 23:56)

    Hello, my name is Faith and I just wanted to say how obsessed I am with Teri Terry's books. When I read Slated for the first time, I was locked into it. I read it in 2 days! I was in class when Ben 'supposedly' died, and I got tears in my eyes! I started to get emotional, and then when I reached the end, I kept on turning the back page to see if it was really over. I was SO SCARED that there wasn't going to be a second book. I would be so honored if my name was in the 3rd book! Teri Terry, you have talent that only comes and goes once in a lifetime!!! I LOVE writing my own books, but I can never get a good plot. You captured that, and then she let it free. Ladies and Gentlemen,Slated is a masterpiece.

Just wanted to say that I just finished your book, Slated, and wow, it's hard for me find books I LOVE, but this is definitely one. I love to write and want to be a teacher when I grow up, but I think it would be really neat to get an original book published on the side. Thank you for writing such amazing books!!

I just wanted to say that I think you are an amazing writer,and Slated is now one of my favourite books. Havent't read Fractured yet, but so excited!

    Asha (Tuesday, 30 April 2013 00:43)

    I think Asha would be a suitable name for the character in the upcoming novel. It is pronounced a-sha not u-sha ahaha :) it has various meanings like "hope" in Indian and "born at dusk" in Japanese. My name is vibrant and I think would create a raw modern edge to the character you name with Asha.

    zara (Tuesday, 30 April 2013 04:37)

    I chose slated for my book study homework and read the whole book in a few days. As soon as i could, i got fractured (which im roughly half way through now) and its so exciting. Im only 11 but have been told to read higher level books and am glad as these books are amazing and I am glued to fractured now. Slated is the best book i've ever read in my whole life and am sure fractured will be as well.

Before Thursday i didn't know about you or your books but got Slated out of the library yesterday and finished it approx. 15mins ago. IT WAS BRILLIANT!!!!! I loved it!!!! Am really loking forward to reading Fractured but someone else has borrowed that from the library so have reserved it so i get it as soon as they return it (good things come to those who wait; i am not very patient though, especially when it comes to books). Sorry for writing a very big comment, i would like to put my name Leonie or Lele (nickname) forward for the competition.
    Thanks soo much again for coming into our school!!!!

In England but am originally from Germany. Also if you aren't looking for a girls name i think Yannis would be really good as a boys name.

They are such fascinating novels and yet so intriguing that as soon as i bought your first book i almost finished it in just one night i just couldn't put in down. After that i quickly bought your second.

When I saw in the back of the book there was going to be a third and final book I screamed and then cried. Your an inspiration to me, I'm currently writing my own book/novel and I would love you to call a new character after me! The name I am submitting is: Isabelle

    Hey Teri! My name's Alannah (nicknames are Lani & Lana) I'm 15 and I'm from Australia! I love Slated so much! I honestly don't know how this isn't as big as Harry Potter or Twilight...it's such an awesome and original book. Definitely one of the best books I've ever read. :)
    I remember last year I was looking for a book and many were appealing to me, but then I saw Slated and I'm like yep, that's the one. I couldn't stop reading! It's awesome! :D
    I got my friend addicted too (yeah!) and to be honest, she's one of those people who has a hard time learning and especially reading, but I let her borrow Slated and she was hooked! She read it super quick and we talk about it lots. :D
    Unfortunately I haven't read Fractured yet because I haven't been able to buy it yet but man I am so pumped for it!
    I think it'd be super awesome if my name could possibly be in the book. I'd probably die from excitement and not even get to read it though. :P
    I'm so happy for you and how much success your books have had, and although your success is amazing I think you deserve much much more! You're a great writer and I love Slated so much! Thank you!
    Keep smiling and I hope you're feeling fantastically ecstatic. Tons of love from your relative country Australia! (Seeya mate! ;))We love you! :D xoxo

    My name is Samantha Jamie, but I'm known as Sam or Sammie B.
    But the name I would love to enter is actually Evanna pronounced as Eve-Anna - this is a name I've made up from my maiden name Evans and Anna - which no one in my family would let me use so I couldn't use it as my children's name :( but I still love the name and it would be fantastic to see it published :))
    All the best with your new book - I'm sure it'll be fantastic as ever :)) xxxxxx

    Hi Teri!
    Many people have my name, but not the way that mine is spelt. Apparently it's French, meaning love and friendship. That is what my mum tells me anyway...
    I love your books and cannot wait to get my hands on the last one! I also hope that you have many more stories published because we all love to read what you have written.
    Thank you.

    Jessica (Friday, 03 May 2013 18:26)

    Okay, so my name is jessica but I called every thing from jess to jessey and some of my friends even call me me 'jessey d' like 'jessie j' seen as I never stop freaking singing! I love your books. I bought the first the day it came out and had to wait like a year till fractured came out! (Which I pre ordered). Kyla is a strong character with a hectic and challenging past, I can relate. She's strong and alert and everything I wish to be. She's betrayed often in the books yet she still pulls through. I think she needs some fun in her life now that she's free, I think a bubbly character called jessey would do just the trick;)
    I can't wait for the next installment! I hope you have as much fun writing as I do reading your books!

    Annie (Saturday, 04 May 2013 11:32)

    Hi, my names Annie... I don't think I can say anything more about your books that you haven't already heard, but that's because they're just that amazing! Anyone I talk to I recommend the series to, and I haven't heard anything negative about it ever. It's my favorite series of all time (and I've read a lot of books!) It would be amazing to have a character named after me, but I know I'll love the next book regardless!
