Actual rating: 4.5 starsWow.OH WOW, OH WOW, OH WOW!Seriously....At times, Slated could be pretty predictable, and there were some frustrating scenes, but other than that, it was fantastic! I felt that the idea of mind erasing was not only super creepy, but it was super fresh, especially in the YA dystopian genre. A nice breath of fresh air. Can't wait to read the second one, although I don't feel like there was much of a cliffhanger at the end, and it was kinda confusing at the end. Like who the hell is this Nico guy? Her teacher? So is he a stalker?! And did Kyra really kill that creepy dude? But then, I want to know (urgently!!!) why Kyra was slated. Or was that in the end?! I told you I was confused!
