Young Adult, dystopian

3 stars

Question 1. What character would you most like to have tea with?
Ben, he's so sweet (even if he did really annoy me in some places of the book!)

Question 2. What character would you most like to throw tea at?
Kyla's 'Mum'. She's so cold towards Kyla at the beginning and it's mean.

Question 3. What do you think of the cover?
It's okay although you can see all of the person's face which I don't like on covers.

Question 4. What do you think of the title do you think there is an alternative?
Slated is a good title, it's simple.

Question 5. Favourite quote!
"It is one thing to ask questions; what do you do with the answers?"

Overall: This book was good, really good. The main character is smart, she worked things out before I did which made the book quite unpredictable, I had no idea where it would go next and this was definitely a good thing. The story line kept me wanting to read on and on and on. The only thing that annoyed me was that I was left with a lot of questions and barely any answers. I know there’s a sequel but the amount of unanswered questions made the book quite confusing in a lot of places, especially at the end where I had little idea what was going on. But I enjoyed this book a lot and definitely recommend it!
