Sometimes nothing but a Grace can save you... In a world where people born with an exceptional skillRead Review
Kyla’s memory has been erased,
her personality wiped blank,
her memories lost for ever.
She’s been Slated.
The government claims she was a terrorist, and that they are giving her a second chance - as long as she plays by their rules. But echoes of the past whisper in Kyla’s mind. Someone is lying to her, and nothing is as it seems. Who can she trust in her search for the truth?
I really enjoyed this book, the plot is so compelling and your perception of the characters is always changing. The book raises a number of moral questions as well as having an enjoyable and heart racing plot. Although the ending left too many questions for my comfort, I can't wait to read the next book, Fractured.
Here's a real thriller for people who love dystopia with a twist - this time it's all in the mind. Sixteen-year-old Kyla's been Slated - her memories wiped clean by a government who think she's a terrorist. But is she?
So she has to learn to live with her new family, to go to a new school where some of the students are hostile to 'Slaters', and to endure therapy sessions to make sure she's not going to dangerous emotional extremes. She even has a device. called a Levo, strapped on her arm to remind her - on pain of knocking her unconscious - not to get too angry or anxious. But Kyla isn't like the other 'Slaters': she still has dreams. Horrendous nightmares in which she is tortured and imprisoned.
When she meets Ben, who has also been Slated, they start to wonder why this has happened to them? Together with a friend, Mac, who has an array of illegal computers, they make a discovery: It is possible to get rid of the hated Levo devices, but the physical and emtional cost could be too high ...
