Slated

By: Teri Terry

Slated is about a girl who was once a terrorist but was captured by the government. Instead of killing her they just erased her memory and made it impossible for her to be violent. She is adopted by this new family who already has another slated daughter. It goes through the changes and things Kyla has to deal with when trying to fit into this new world. Does she want to remember who she is? Or should she forget that and leave it in the past?


I chose these songs because she goes through hate, fear, love, and friendship.

At the beginning of this book Kyla has to start over with her life. All her memories are erased and she doesn't know who she is anymore. What she does know is shes going home. To a brand new family.

Kyla's sister has a boyfriend named Jazz. She doesn't know what to think of him yet but she knows that her mom doesn't like him. Or know that they are dating for that matter.

In slated, Kyla has to overcome all the newness. She has to learn how to keep her levo at a normal level so she doesn't die. She has to start at a new school and be around slater haters. She's fighting for her life every night when she has a nightmare and it drops her levo to a 2 and she passes out.

I Hold On by Dierks Bentley

Kyla is trying to remember who she is most of the book. She knows she used to be a criminal because she was slated. She has nightmares every night of her hands getting smashed so she could no longer draw. She doesn't know if she should try to link that to her past or not. She wishes she could remember her name at least because she's not a fan of "Kyla Davis." She's trying to hold on to what she remembers and what she used to have.
