Teri Terry

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 a silly name along the way. Moving constantly as a child, teenager and also as an adult has kept Teri on the outside looking in much of her life. It has given her an obsession with characters like Kyla in Slated, who don't belong or find themselves in unfamiliar places. Teri recently left her job with Buck's libraries in England to write full-time and complete her research MA on the depiction of terrorism in recent young adult dystopian literature. In the UK Slated won the North East Teenage Book Award, the Leeds Book Award, the Angus book award, the Portsmouth Book Award, the Rotherham book award and the Rib Valley Book Award, and is shortlisted for many others. It was the most voted for YA title in the 2012 international Edinburgh Book Festival Anobii First Book Award. In the US it is a Junior Library Guild selection.
