    I want to ask if the books „dangerous games“ and „Dark Blue Rising“ will translate in German?
    I‘m a fan of your books and I red all of it instead this two ones.
    Best regards from Germany.

    The first time I ever read one of her books it was slated. When I finished that and saw there was other books I begged my mom for them sadly we were tight with money. But let me tell you a couple month later when my mom handed me a package and told me to open it I was jumping with excitement when I saw the title "Shattered" and "Fractured". This trilogy is my favorite to read I've read the trilogy at least twice. As I started talking more and more about Teri my mom decided to buy me some of her other books. One day I'm hoping to read all her books and maybe meet her.

    I loved the slated series and when I saw the prequel I bought and read it within a couple of days .... I really liked the book but have one question.... slated books never mentioned about the twins. I had the impression Sandy was only child

    Oh yeah and if you do write a book about Ben from Slated please only write it from his point if view. Please don't make it 2 different people. It's confusing.

    Hello. I LOVE THE SLATED TRILOGY!!! Ben and Kyla, ah dont even get me started. They're so CUTE. Ben is so dreamy ah. I would love to see a movie about these books. Can you maybe think about making one. If you do, please please please, ask Timothee Chalamet to audition for Ben. I think he would be the perfect guy for the role Ben. Good job, I HATE reading until I read the slated I can't stop re-reading it!!

    My daughter, who is sadly not the avid reader I have always been, read Slated as part of her required summer reading. She raved about it! She asked for the other two books for Christmas. She's hasn't asked for a book since she was little when she wanted books with more pictures than words. I decided to read Slated. I ended up reading all three books in four days! I love them! I couldn't put them down. These may have been written for young adults but they are plenty sophisticated for all adults. The plot was so intricate and the surprises just kept coming. The characters are so real and you drew me into their lives. You made me care about them. My daughter hasn't finished book two yet but we had a discussion about what has happened so far. I wanted to know her thoughts on who Kyla was before she was slated, about subjects like government control, terrorism and when killing someone might be justified. The themes in this series are so on point with what is happening in the world. I was pleasantly surprised by her grasp of these concepts. This series has made her think in a way she hadn't before. Thank you, you are a gifted storyteller. I look forward to reading more of your works and will definitely recommend you to others!

    I'm a big Kyla fan and recently something kinda hit me. We don't know Kyla's middle name. Does she have one or do people in 'Slated' not use middle names anymore? If she does have a middle name, what is it? Thank you so much and best of luck with your future books.

    Hi, I recently just came across your slated trilogy and I can honestly say that I am flabbergasted by how brilliant your books are. As someone who spends little to no time reading books or showing any such interest in reading books I am utterly impressed and intrigued as to how you are such and amazing and creative writer, I can truly announce that you are one of the best authors out there. Also another thing I would like to say is can you please arrange something to make a series of movies out of your books! it's just a suggestion but pleaseee!!!

    Thank you. As a child I was a very avid reader (still am), I read hundreds of books, and the Slated series was one of them. I've forgotten almost all the books I read as a child, but I remembered Slated, it always stuck out to me. Although I forgot the name. After a lot of searching, I found Fractured by chance at the library last month. I went on a bit of a goose chase tracking down all the books, and read each of them in a day. Even reading them now as an adult, they're absolutely amazing books. There was a lot of gasping, laughing and crying. The last few chapters of Shattered were so intense I was shaking. Thank you so so so much for these books, they mean a lot to me.

    Hi, I'm a big fan of yours. I have to admit that your book was the one that brought me into the literary universe. I was 13 when I read it and fell in love. Today I am 19 years old, and I'm at university studying to be a publisher and I have the dream of publishing my books.
    As part of a class of mine, I have to choose a book to do the cover and abstract editing as if I were the publisher that will publish the book, I chose yours for bringing me so many good memories. I'm doing an analysis and structuring The Slated. Thank you for writing such a good book.
    I look forward to the next, best regards Giovana Franco.
    Ps .: I did not mention but I am Brazilian.

    Hi Teri,

    I am completely stunned!!! I read the Slated Trilogy years ago and I fell in love immediately!!! ♥️... I read “Mind Games” and “Book of lies” as well and my love to your words has grown a lot. This year I was in Sweden and saw “Contagion”...I am from Germany and I haven’t read much in English, but I knew, that I had to buy the book, because with your name on it it had to be something very interesting and lovely to read!..I finished it half an hour ago and I needed to ask my parents to buy “Deception” ... I really liked both of your novels, but you’re trilogies are like drugs and my addiction is getting worse and worse with every page ( I hope you know that worse doesn’t have a negative connotation in this case) ...I am speechless and all my expectations are fulfilled and much more than this. I just wanted you to know, that i really appreciate your work and your ideas!!!! Thanks for sharing them in such a beautiful way :)♥️♥️♥️
    Much love from Germany and please keep on writing ✍️

    Sorry I don't do social media so I needed to contact you here. I'm a writer and editor, so in reading books I can't help but have my editor's eye out. I was curious why in your books you jump around from contractions to non-contractions, especially in dialogue where most people speak in contractions, however, not your characters. For me, it moves the writing back and forth between informal and formal. Just wondered. I did love Slated, though, and am on to book 2. Thanks, Andrea

    Hi Teri,

    I really love your books, they’re outstanding! Your style of writing is so captivating!
    I love the Slated trilogy and I’m really excited about your new prequel Fated. The story is great and I love the different characters: Ben, whom everyone likes, Phoebe, the one who has understandable prejudices against Slaters, and Nico, who is a terrorist and sometimes still acts like he cares about Kyla. And of course I like how Kyla changes throughout the trilogy.
    Yesterday evening I finished Contagion and I’m soooo excited about Deception, I’ll begin reading it as soon as possible but I’m quite busy with school. I really look forward it, especially the chapters from Kai’s sight, there are finally Kai chapters! At the moment I’m wondering if Callie will die at the end because I don’t think you left her the way she is at the end of Contagion.
    Thanks a LOT for writing these WONDERFUL books. They left me thinking about the subject even long after finishing them!

    Dear Teri, I just finished reading your Slated trilogy and I love them SOOOOOOOOO much! I still do have a question (which does contain a spoiler so if you haven’t read the books them don’t keep reading) I was hoping when Aiden rescued Ben, Dr. Lysander would get his memories back and be back together with Kyla. Why did you make Ben not want Kyla anymore? I really wish they got back together even though I love Aiden and Kyla. Thanks

    Jorjia Meza (Thursday, 13 December 2018 14:34)

    Dear Ms. Terry:

    In 6th grade I was inspecting the book shelves to find a good book to read, or at least a decent one. I wasn’t much of a reader and I’m still not. I thought all hope was lost and I would just have to settle for that book about horses or something, but then I came upon the bottom of the left corner on the very bottom shelf. There it was. The book I was going to read. The book of my dreams. The book that could suck me into the world of its own. But of course I didn’t know that then, so what I saw was a pretty cool looking book. The picture was a pretty girl with bright green eyes, and under her it said “Who can you trust when everyone is a stranger.”. When I read that little part I knew I was going to love your book. Slated. Your book made me interested and left me wanting more. When I found out that it was a trilogy I was on cloud nine and immediately started reading them. I soon fell in love with your books and didn’t want to stop reading them. That was two years ago and I still find myself rereading your books so I can escape to a world with Kyla Davis.

    Since I was in 6th grade the books helped me with figuring out middle school in a way. When Kyla Davis came out of the hospital and didn’t remember what to do or where she was it reminded me of how when you come into 6th grade it’s like a whole new world with a whole new building to figure out. In Slated you wrote “I hadn’t wanted to leave the hospital. Not that I wanted to stay there forever, but within those walls, I knew where I was. How I fit, what was expected.” I could really relate to that sentence, because when you get into 6th grade all you know is elementary school. I was so used to sitting with everyone at 1 or 2 lunch tables because everything was so small, but when I got into middle school it’s like elementary school times 10. I knew where I was and who I was in that school. But when I got into Middle school it’s almost like a whole new life. With a whole new purpose.

    When Kyla Davis was slated she needed to figure out who she was going to be in the world. Which is kind of like in middle school. There’s so many new and different people to meet. You have to find out who you want to be and how you’re going to be seen as. Who you’re going to sit with at lunch, and who your going to be friends with.

    When you’re in middle school, a lot of things will try to change you. When you believe in something your going to get tested by other people trying to change you. Many people didn’t like Kyla just because she was slated and I think it relates to the real world, because people will just judge and not like other people just because of how they look or what has happened to them in the past. Also in Slated you wrote about how she went to the support group. The first time she went Kyla said that they are supposed to talk about their feeling on things in a non judgmental group, but she feels like the nurses and leaders are almost telling her how to feel about things and how to react to it. This reminds me a lot of school in a way, because all the teachers say that everyone shouldn’t judge other people and stuff, but when a student will bring something up about their family or even religion some of the teachers seem to judge the students a little which is very wrong.

    Sometimes I try to imagine what it would be like to live in the world of Kyla Davis, a world where the government can slate people and just change everything about them. When I read Slated it reminds me of 6th grade and how we’re basically all new, so we have to find out who we are going to be and who we want to be seen as. We also can’t let people change us when we decide who we are and who we want to be. Thank you so much Ms. Terry for writing the book Slated and the rest of the series. It has impacted me a lot and also so many others.

    Hey there! I am currently an 8th grade student, and have recently finished reading your slated series. I have been thinking about the ending for 2 days now! It did not end how I thought it would, and frankly, I was a bit upset about it, but since I cannot get into details, I will just leave it there. I was so obsessed with these books, and I wish they never had to end! All of the characters were so complex, and the amount of twists and turns the book took had me constantly on the edge of my seat! I almost cried when it was over! My dream is for these books to become movies, and if it ever happens, I will be the first one in line to see them! The plot was so perfect! I would love to see a book maybe on Ben's perspective during the 3 books, or maybe even Nico's! I think that would be really interesting! I will probably end up reading these books over and over until I can cite every word, but that will probably take forever lol. These books are genius!!!!

    Hey there! I'm currently a 13 year old, and I have just finished reading your Slated trilogy. I cannot believe the end! If I had known it would have taken such a turn, and had known that it wouldn't have ended how I thought, I would have prepared myself! The plot line was perfect, and the characters were so interesting! I was on the edge of my seat constantly while reading it, and I want to read it a thousand times over! It was so intense, but since i can't get into spoilers, I cannot explain what I mean. I wish you could write another book, maybe about Nico, or Ben maybe! I would love to get more details into Ben's perspective throughout the plot line of the trilogy, and see how he viewed things throughout the 3 books, especially with kyla! I have been thinking about the ending for almost 2 days now, and I can't get over it!

I didn't think in a million years that it would end that way and have been thinking about it for almost 2 days now! I cannot believe it. I wish it had ended some other way for some reason, but since I can't give spoilers, I can't really get into it on here. Absolutely crazy!!! My favorite books by far!

When I first finished the book, I was almost in tears 'cause it was such an amazing book. I can't express my feelings in words now but I really hope that one day, I get to meet up with you and get to talk. After reading one of your books, I ended up reading more. You are my idol right now. I know I already said this but I LOVE YOUR BOOKS. Keep up the good work.

    Dear Teri,

    Thank you so much for writing Mind Games!
    I am a master's student in Germany and I have dedicated my master's thesis to this novel! I'm very interested in Neoliberalism (not just as a term from economy but as a mindset) and Mind Games served as the perfect dystopian setting for a discussion of how society could change when we keep thinking neoliberal.
    Before I finish my paper and hand it in, I have this one little question for you and I would be more than super-extremely-incredibly happy if you could answer it.
    It's basically just: Have you ever thought about Neoliberalism when you wrote Mind Games?

    Thank you so much in advance and if you are interested, I can send you a copy once it is finished!

    Hi Teri,
    You may have noticed I also commented on the “so you want to be a writer” section of your website, but I feel I didn’t say enough!

    First of all, I want to introduce myself:
    I’m 14 years old and living in Australia (where I read was your home at one point too!) and I absolutely love each and every one of your books!

    Which brings me to some questions - I have so many but I’ll try to keep them to a minimum:
    1. How did you think of the concepts for Slated and Mind Games?
    I found they were completely realistic at how the future could play out.
    2. I loved how Book of Lies showed the thoughts of both main characters - have you ever thought of writing another Slated book in Bens perspective? Because I’m dieing to know his thoughts during the books and in Shattered’s aftermath!
    3. I would also love to see a book with Katran as the protagonist. If I’m honest, his fate touched me deeply and I really want to read into his character and his past.
    And finally....
    4. Is their anything I can to to help any one of your books become a movie?
    Thank you for taking the time to read my messages.
    All the best x

    Hi! I borrowed a couple of books from my public library and Contagion was in that. After reading 2-3 of the books in my bag I deciding to read Contagion. Every time I put the book down straight after I had done what I had to do I went back to the book, it's unputtdownable. I loved the book and really want you to make a sequel because I'm still wondering what happened at the end! And I'm still dying to know if they stop the thingy (thingy in case it's counted as a spoiler)! Contagion is amazing so I might read some of your other books!
