Two Times Teri Delivers Double Delight!

Teri Terry

Hoorah Hoorah! Teri Terry has earned an astonishing list of nominations and awards for her first teen  novel Slated. 

In addition to winning the recent North East Teenage Book Award, Slated has been short-listed for the Leeds Book Award in the 14-16 category, Portsmouth Book Award in the longer novels category, Sussex Coast Schools Amazing Book AwardRib Valley Book AwardAngus Book Award, and Rotherham Book Award in the teen reads category. It has also been long-listed for the Branford Boase Award, and short listed for the SCBWI Crystal Kite award!

Slated was published in the UK in May 2012  by Orchard Books, and was launched in the US by Penguin Imprint Nancy Paulsen Books on 24th January. As if this amazing list isn't enough, Slated has been recently optioned for a film by Prescience

Teri Terry has lived in France, Canada, Australia and England at more addresses than she can count, acquiring three 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.

I think a place firmly in the heart of publishing is where Teri Terry belongs and I promise more good news is on the way -  two hoorahs aren't nearly enough! 


  1. Really looking forward to reading Fractured, Teri. Well done on all those awards.

  2. This is going to be an amazing year for you, Teri - mark my words!

  3. Slated sounds great from the extract I've read. All the best.

  4. Thanks everyone! it's been sort of half whirlwind - half happening without me noticing, because I've been writing, writing, writing book 3. I hope to have some real world time now that I've finally sent it off.


We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
