    I love your books! I have just finished reading Evolution and the entire trilogy is 10/10. Idea: maybe create a spin off series after the pandemic.

    I've enjoyed your prequel Fated. Hoping to find out how it will go after five years, I'm starting with your trilogie. But it's about another girl. I'm very curious about Ava and Sam. It's too sad they never meet again. Are you writing an follow up? greetings, Guido, Koedijk, Netherlands

    Hello Teri Terry

    I am a 60+ teenager-at-heart and love your books! I have just bought Black Night Falling and am re-reading the first two books. I like how relevant they are to the climate crisis. I have also enjoyed the Slated trilogy and Mind Games. I have always been on the outside and really relate to many of your characters. Thank you for your wonderful books.

    Hello Teri Terry! Eliza here again.

    I just finished reading the prequel, 'Fated'! I told my teacher about it shortly after I finished 'Shattered' and she actually ordered the book! (Thank you Mrs. Boettcher!!!!!) I was really excited to read it and couldn't wait for it to arrive, it finally arrived last Thursday and I just finished it today, and oh my god, I absolutely LOVED it!

    This paragraph may contain some spoilers for the book 'Fated', a prequel to the Slated trilogy. Please skip this paragraph if you do not want to get any spoilers, thank you. Now continuing---> I always got excited whenever I saw a connection, foreshadowing, and reference to the Slated books. I STILL cannot believe that Ava is Dr. Lysander! And I love the connections, for instance in one of the books in the Slated trilogy (I believe the book 'Fractured'? I'm not sure!) when Dr. Lysander, or Ava, went to meet up with Kyla I remember there being a mention of Ava wearing a necklace, which is her mother's necklace! Dr. Lysander also mentioned about her having someone she loved, which is Sam! I think I'm even more shocked to learn that Nico- is Lucas's brother! As soon as there was a mention of the name 'Nico' I gasped and I thought no way. However I guess little Nicky really did keep his words about coming back at the Lorders!

    Overall, this is by no mistake the BEST series I have read in awhile, if not my favorite of all time. Thank you for providing such thrilling and amazing books for your readers!

    I hope to read more of your books in the future, thank you, best regards

    Hi Teri Terry,

    I just finished reading the Slated trilogy, and it is EASILY one of the best series I have ever read! I have always loved reading, and recently I have been getting into these types of books. My teacher highly recommended the book 'Slated' to me. I loved it so much that I had to read the other books! I just found out that there is a prequel to Slated and I'm hoping to read it soon. I am also hoping to read some of your other books too.

    I literally couldn't put the books down! Sometimes at school I stayed in for recess just so I can read the books, and it was very worth it! I can't believe that just a few weeks ago I didn't know about these books.
    I love the plot, how it's realistic, the concept of the story, and most importantly...the twists! It was very thrilling, to the point where I would find myself having butterflies in my stomach. The characters are well-developed too, and it has so much detail I can imagine the books as a movie in my head! Speaking of movies, I think we fans would go crazy if there was movies on the Slated trilogy haha! I'm hoping there would be movies in the near future.

    I found out that you had a website, and I just couldn't resist not checking it out! That's how I found out that there is a prequel, the book 'Fated'. I am really hoping to read it because I do want to know what happened to the mysterious life of Sam. I am also wondering what happened to Ben after Shattered, but I guess we Slans, may never know! Also I wanted to mention that I find it interesting how the characters' names in the books are based on real people!

    Thank you for writing this amazing series, I'm hoping for you to reply.

    Best regards!

    Your fellow reader,

I hope that you get this message, because it would make me very happy. I will also read all the books you have written because I know they are very well written and they are exciting too. Here is my letter for you I hope you can reply.

    Why are some of your books not sold in the United States? Why can't I get some of your books in Kindle format?

    I stumbled upon slated... Then promptly bought the other 3 that are connected, to say they are twisting panic giving books is an understatement! I absolutely love them. I looked into the other books you have written and decided to get the 'Dark Matter' books and also book of lies (This one is insane!)
    I want to thank you for writing these. I have read all of them in less then a week!

    Please think on making a book about Ben.

    Ms. Terry
    Hey, I've posted something on here before. I just wanted to say that I ordered the Fated book. And so far it is supper good. I love the slated books. It is sad because we didn't get to know much about the character in Shattered named Katran. I also started reading Slated to my sister who is older and she is really interested in it!! It is so realistic. I haven't read any of your other books yet though.
    Also is there anything I could do to help make the Slated Trilogy into a movie series?
    Or is there any thing that I could do to help make a Book about Ben??
    With love from the United States���,

    Hello me again.
    I was reading all the other comments and I think it would be awesome to write a book about Ben after he left Kayla. It would be nice to read about what was happening with his life and if he ever misses Kayla.

    Hi, I was in school a couple last year searching through the library that they have there and I came across your book called "Slated" at first I wasn't so sure about reading it, but my library teacher really recommend it so me, and so I checked it out and started reading it. Once I opened it I could not put it down. I finished it within a few days. When I returned the book it just so happened that my library teacher had "Fractured" and "Shattered". I was able to check out "Fractured" and finish it, but around the same time I finished the second book the schools shut down because of covid-19. I was so upset because I was never able to read the third book. I wanted to read the third book so bad, except I couldn't remember what the book series were called. I wasn't going to school and so I couldn't go and check it out. Finally after 6 months I was just messing around on the internet when it hit me. I finally was able to remember what the books were called. I quickly searched them up online and was able to buy the whole series. Yesterday I finished "Shattered" and OMG!! What a twist with all the books.! I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!! I read the acknowledgements page and found out that you had a website. Literally 5 minutes ago I was browsing this website and found out that you wrote another book that is sort of linked to the Slated trilogy."Fated" And then I found this page and had to thank you for writing the Stated series. They are an awesome read for teenagers like me. I will have to find the Fated book and read it. Alo I was wondering If you ever plan on making movies out of these books?? I think that they would be awesome.

    Thanks again,

    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.

    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.

    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.
