On Wednesday 8th March Year 8 students had the opportunity to meet Teri Terry, award-winning author of the 'Slated' series. Students Ishara and Jesse have written this report:
Teri has had five books published so far: her 'Slated' trilogy ('Slated', 'Fractured' and 'Shattered'), 'Mind Games' (which includes a sequel novella called ’Dangerous Games, available as an e-book), and her latest novel, 'Book of Lies'. Teri spoke to us about her work to date, including 'Book of Lies' which was published last year. This is the only one of her books which is contemporary, meaning that it is set in the present, unlike her other books which are all dystopian fiction and set in the future.
Teri then read us the prologue of each book and a few chapters of 'Book of Lies', which was very interesting as it was nice to get a small glimpse into her books and see her writing style.We then had the opportunity to ask Teri some questions about her work and have copies of her books signed, which proved extremely popular. Overall this experience was very enjoyable and we are looking forward to reading more books by Teri in the future. We also hope to be able to welcome many more inspiring authors to the school for talks and visits."
