    I would love to know what Ben's life was like before, what crimes he committed, how he got caught, his real relationship with Tori. It's hard to believe that Ben (upbeat, educated, and present) was such a bad person when he gives up the good and happy life he had, words spoken by him after he got the memories back, decides to take Nivo off the Own life to help other people, even Kyla, the girl he supports, begging him not to do that. It has been proven in several times in the book that Nivo was not able to change any characteristic of a person's personality.
    What was done with him to become a lord, how he met up with Tori, and when he realized the mistake he made by betraying Kyla, after he recovered the memory he and kyla talked and why he decided to leave since He would not be accused of the crimes he committed and was with the girl he supposedly loved, since if he stayed he would have to take advantage of the situation because Kyla became very important to the Londoners.

    KNEE PIECE A BOOK TO BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND BEN. I loved the Slated trilogy, but I confess that I would really like a book for Ben, he was a very captivating character. In my humble opinion, many gaps remained about him, I would like to understand better the character, his story and his attitudes. Even Kyla herself asks herself in the book if she really knew him.

    Hi, I am 13 and a bit of a book worm.� When I was reading the Slated trilogy I couldn't put the books down.

    I loved Nico's character, how did you come up with such an amasing character?? Nico was was cruel and manipulative but one of my favorite characters.

    I haven't gotten to read Book of Lies or Mind games but I can't wait to!!

    I would love to to see a book that tells what happens to everyone after the government is re-setup! Where did Ben go? Do Kalya/Hope and Aiden become a couple? What happened to Mum and Amy, and Jazz and Amy?

    Anyway I LOVE your books��
    thanks for your time�

    Dear Teri Terry
    Can I please just state first of all that your style of writing is absolutely outstanding and your work has inspired myself and lots of other young teenagers whom have read your books to continue in their passion for writing, so thank you so incredibly much!! I have always been fond of reading and writing and have always recieved high makes in literature. Your wiritng however, set a whole new perspective for me and has helped me so much.
    I fell utterly in love with the Slated trilogy and was mad crazy about the Book Of Lies and Mind Games. I have some questions about the Slated trilogy that I'd like to disclose but you may want to hide this message is it will most probably contain spoilers.

    My first question is what inspired you to write the trilogy and how did you manage to fit the plot together so perfectly? Constantly I was on the edge, whether it be on the edge of my seat or bawling my eyes out, it kept me engaged non-stop.

    Slated gave you the impression that you knew everything and what was to happen next but then BAM! Another twist!. My second question I'd like to disclose is what did Ben do so wrong to become slated? It was suggested in the book that he was a criminal of some sort but was never explained in depth, I felt that it all ended too quickly.

    Nico was an amazing character even though he was cruel and manipulative, he was such a complex character and was so significant to the story, what inspired you to portray him this way? Did you base his character partially on someone you know/knew?

    Hope. That. One. Word. It killed me, I cried so much. It was such a perfect conclusion. I never thought it to be possible that a whole trilogy could be summed up in one word. Did you intend to do this from the start or did you come up with it along the way? Why did you decide for Kylas name to be Hope?

    I look forward to reading what you write next and wish you luck and all the best.

    Kind regards,

    My name is Daisy and I am a big fan of your works. I am 13 and in third year at Selkirk High School. I really like reading and am part of my school ‘reading ambassadors’ club.

    We are trying to promote reading in schools and are hoping for your help. We are running lots of competitions such as literacy treasure hunts, reading marathons and quizzes. We have also started our own blog – – where we will write reviews of our favourite books.

    My reason for writing to you is to ask for your help. Do you have any suggestions for how we could create a buzz about reading at our school or could you kindly donate a prize? We would appreciate anything you have even if that is just a few ideas.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Yours sincerely,

    Hi! Teri

    I am 13 years old and I am from Denmark and i have to make an authorship report in my school, and i have chosen you. I have read your two books Slated and shattered, and it was the best books in the world. I should write something about you and I think, what is it that matters most to you about yourself, and about your books. I hope you will answer my question.

    Bye, Mille

    Hey there Teri Terry!
    My name is claudia, I'm a 17 years old student living in Germany. I've always found a great pleasure in reading (and writing) in english, so after finishing your first book of the Slated series, then stumbling across the german version and skipping through the pages, I noticed that there is something so obvious missing and that is YOUR final touch. There is just a huge difference in reading the words you wrote, and the ones a translator thought would suit best or will make the best translation out of it. I've grown so fond of your unique style of writing and the way you tell a story, it always held me captivated and excited. I also got so nervous not knowing what will happen next that I just couldn't help myself or put the books down. I devoured them in just a few days and every time I had finished one of your works, the story still remained and I'm still living through the adventures. (The series even earned a special place on my bookshelf hhh). I also want to mention what a great herioine you have created, especially since me and Kyla would be the same age it really was interesting seeing the various characters she developed and what an amazing and peerless herioine she was, is and has become.
    I'm sorry for putting you through reading all this rubbish, however, I want to thank you so much for letting me in on this adventure and I wish I could give you back more than this shabby feedback and the £20 I spent on the series to show my gratitude but anyhow, I hope you'll bless us all with plenty of your new, brilliant work and I'm looking forward to seeing you evolve and write even better books (if that's possible at all). I sincerely hope that you'll always find just as much joy and satisfaction in writing stories as I find in reading them. I wish you the very best and good luck for your upcoming projects!

    All the love xx

    I am absolutely in love with your slated serious. I am reading book of lies next. But in the slated serious I was actually upset that Ben and Kyla weren't together at the end. But aiden seems nice and cute. So I liked that twist and all the other twists. Ur a amazing writer. Inspiring even. My favorite part was when Ben*died* you don't know how hard I cried and I friend whenever they mentioned his name in the book. I felt as if I was a part of it. As if I was there holding the characters hand the whole was through. Thank you for the experience. I hope to re-read the slated serious soon.

    Bonjour Teri, tout d'abord MERCI pour votre trilogie qui m'a tenue en haleine jusqu'au bout. Je viens de terminer Brisée qu'il me tardait de lire chaque après-midi et soir afin de suivre l'aventure de Kyla.
    Avant cette trilogie, je ne vous connaissais pas mais dorénavant je vais rechercher vos livres.
    Encore un Grand MERCI pour ces instants géniaux de lecture (comme un film à épisodes dont on ne peux en louper aucun) !
    A vous relire très prochainement,

    Hi I'm Annamae. I am 14 years old and I live in North Dakota. I am a huge fan of your series Slated and it was my favorite book series ever. I must have read your series about 2 times. I really have been wanting to get a chance to read the book Mind Games but I have no way to buy it and read it. I really think you should go and talk to people and make the Slated series into a movie. I would watch it over and over and would love to help along with it. I have requested the Skated series to my friends and they have loved it too and my school librarian also bought the books for people to read as well. I'm sure making the Slated series into a movie series would be a hit. It would be very loved and I hope that you can find a way to make it into a movie. I'd love to hear back from you.

    Your books are amazing and have been a great inspection to work hard at school. Your books are the only books that I enjoy reading, they stimulate my mind and make me think constantly. I have read “The Slated Trilogy” and I am halfway through “Mind Games” I love the story lines. Your books have inspired me to start writing small stories and I am currently working on my own book.

    Thank you for your Amazing books, I hope you keep writing for a long time.

    Genevieve (Thursday, 25 August 2016 09:36)

    I'm 13 years old and live in Queensland.
    I love your books, but my most favourite is the book of lies. It was such a good book that I couldn't stop reading and couldn't put it down. ( my mother even threatened to take it away because I was too engaged in the book and was always wanting to keep reading)
    I know that the book ended in a way that could never be continued but I'm begging you with my whole heart for you to do another book to continue on from the book of lies. I know that you will most likely not do this but there is always a chance. I really want p.... Blackwood to come back. I was so sad at what happened - the book was so good though, I would never doubt that.
    I have always wanted my name to be in the for so and so bit at the start of one book :). It's been a pleasure being able to talk to you! I really hope you reply and I also really hope that you will do another book of lies to continue on from the last.

    Hi I've never written (or typed) to an author before but I have to say how amazing your book series is! I wasn't much of a reader before 3 months ago when I starter reading slated and the others from the series so I also just really want to thank you for writing such amazing books! If it wasn't for your books then I don't know when I would of started reading for pleasure! Just thanks so much!

    P.s. It would be amazing if you could maybe get back to me on Instagram ( cruel_candy_cash_cat ) Your the best :)

    Hi Teri, I just finished re-reading your Slated trilogy and once again was very happy with the ending to the books. Although I always wondered about Aiden and Kyla (or any of the other names for that matter). I was so pleased when Nico started calling her Rain because that is just another spelling of my name and somehow I was able to connect to her more!! These three books are my favourite and I am so greatfull that you have written them with such thought. I really hope these books get made into movies!!!
    -Such a pleasure talking to you,
    Rayne xoxo

    Hi Ari,
    Thank you! And it IS translated into German.

    Hi Sue Ann,
    Thank you SO MUCH for telling me this - I used to work in libraries, so I completely understand how good it feels when the 'right' book turns someone into a reader for the first time.

  • #75

    Ari Kain (Monday, 02 May 2016 17:49)

    I'm a big fan of the slated triology! I just can't stop reading because it is so exciting. To be honest in some parts of the books I cried. It's so heart-rending. I love how you write your books. You give the feeling this all happens right next to you. It's like you're sitting in your room, reading the book and you lose the reality and just get into the charakters. I don't know how to explain this feeling but it is just... indescribable.

    Actually I just want to thank you so so much for the slated-triology ♥ I hope it becomes a movie! And I would very much appreciate if it would be translated into German!

    All the Love from Germany

    Ari Kain♥

    I teach a novels class in the US where many of my students are in the juvenile justice system. We decided to read Slated this year and it has been interesting to have these student's insights on how we should work with "teenage criminals." They've really enjoyed the book.

    Yesterday I was counseling with a student about choices she is making and the consequences of them. In the course of the conversation she made the comment, "My foster mom asked me why I was reading, because I hate reading...and I was embarrassed to tell her I liked the book, so I told her I had to for school." She's really engaged with the book and in many ways relates to Kyla.

    I love it when students who "hate" reading find something interesting. So glad we chose Slated. I'm going to buy the rest of the trilogy as a summer gift for the students.

    Hi Teri,

    Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Slated trilogy. I'm nowhere near being a teenager or YA but enjoyed them very much anyway! Excellent concepts, good twists and all round good reads. Refreshing, engaging and recommended for all ages. I look forward to reading more of your books.
    Keep up the good work!

    I am a dyslexic mum to a dyslexic 13 year old son - who until recently never volunteered to pick up a book! I would read each evening the school book club book to him but recently could not read the next instalment from Slated - and he read for the next half hour - went on to read the rest of the book himself -and now has actually started the next book - and he doesn't even need to read it for school! He has also independently read the next school book club book and starting another - while I miss reading each evening I would much rather he has found the enjoyment of reading himself / thank you - now can you just work on his spelling!!

I live in Canada and am actually the granddaughter of Mildred Everest who lived in the same house as you when she was a teacher in France. Anyway I love your books, Slated is amazing! They have become my favourite books and have a place on honor on my bookshelf. I love the way you write and have reread the trilogy many times. I have to say that I haven't read Mind Games, mainly because I can't find any copies in Canada (where I live). Anyway I hope you just had a good Christmas and have a good new year!

    Hi Teri! I just finished Mind Games and it has landed itself as one of my favourite books without a doubt. I'm lucky enough to have been able to meet you before when you have visited my school and my copy of Mind Games is actually signed. I just wanted to let you know how amazing I found your books. It's clear from everyone else who has raved about your writing that you are highly appreciated and you really deserve it. I picked up the book from my shelf during a mass power outage last night and read until probably a bit too late but I don't regret it at all. I hope you continue to write stories like this and I am thoroughly inspired to pursue English and writing even if it isn't for a career. Thank you!!

I really wanted to know more about Ben and I was wondering whether you would write a book based on him and what he does after shattered. I also wondered whether you could maybe make a book that has snippets of Kyla/Rain/Riley/Hope 's time after the whole funeral part? Plz reply back I absolutely love your books and I would really appreciate it if you did bring out another book, thank you!

Where are you living now? I'm sorry, but i found nowhere something about that. I would be happy, if you answer.

    Hi Teri,
    I read Slated because my friend Holly Sarah (Who has commented also) recommended it to me and i loved it. It was finished in a day and i had to wait a week to buy Fractured and Shattered but once they were bought they were finished in three days because it was unputdownable. Me, Lena and Holly (who have both commented) have sometimes had chats about the books and can't say characters names in case we ruin it for others but all love it to bits. I can't wait to read mind games.

    Hi Teri!
    I've just recently finished the slated trilogy after my friend Holly Sarah (she has also commented) advised me to read it. I thought amazing! I'm from the UK and liked the fact that when I read the books, it was about places that I've been too- and also live near (Keswick)! Sometimes when I read books I can't imagine the setting, but I could with this book. I felt like I was in the book and sometimes felt real rage when characters were hurt or turned up etc. But thank you for writing such wonderful books as these are now my favourite series! I'm planning on reading mind games soon!

I wrote to you to ask something, in mind games what is the virtual world and when it says people often plug in what does it mean. Do they just go into a computrr software and what do they doo? I would be really grateful if you cpuld reply
    Thanks xxx
