Fractured is the second book in the Slated trilogy by Teri Terry. This is a dystopian trilogy based on the concept of terrorism, with the idea that while terrorists' actions are obviously wrong, what if their motivations aren't? (Read my book note on the first book, Slated, here.) Fractured picks up right where Slated ended, with our protagonist Kyla trying to come to grips with her friend Ben's—well, we aren't really sure if he disappeared or if he is dead. She's not certain who she can trust, either within her family or at school. So she sort of flounders for awhile. Excellent, floundering characters are my favorite!
