Description of this Book

Prequel to the multi award-winning SLATED trilogy, which established Teri Terry as the queen of the teen thriller and an international publishing sensation. A nation in turmoil. A girl at a crossroads. As rival factions vie for control in a future totalitarian state, anarchy threatens and the stakes have never been so high. The UK has closed its borders, isolating itself from Europe and the rest of the world. Society is economically polarised, and an uneasy coalition government is at risk from a powerful anarchist movement carrying out devastating terror attacks using teen suicide bombers. In a bid to regain control over the population, the government institutes the harshest of sanctions and reinstates the death penalty. Fifteen-year-old Sam, the daughter of the deputy prime minister, abandons her life of privilege to become involved in anti-government protests, fighting against the authoritarian measures imposed on young people. When Sam's involvement in an attack on Westminster is discovered, she faces the death penalty ... but will her father sacrifice his own daughter for his political gain? A red-hot thriller packed with secrets and revelations that establishes the background to the award-winning SLATED trilogy.

Author's Bio

Teri Terry's award-winning debut trilogy - Slated, Fractured and Shattered - established her as the queen of the teen thriller. Teri is also the author of Mind Games and Book of Lies, and her most recent work is the Dark Matter trilogy. Her books have been translated into sixteen languages and have won many prizes at home and abroad. Teri Terry has lived in France, Canada, Australia and England at more addresses than she can count, acquiring four degrees, a selection of passports and an unusual name along the way. Past careers have included scientist, lawyer, optometrist and, in England, various jobs in schools, libraries and an audiobook charity. She has now made her home in the Buckinghamshire Chilterns (where the Slated trilogy is set) but Teri's love of travel continues, and research for her novels has recently taken her to Dartmoor (Book of Lies) and Shetland (Dark Matter).
