Uninvited by Sophie Jordan
Publication date: January 28, 2014

The Scarlet Letter meets Minority Report in bestselling author Sophie Jordan's chilling new novel about a teenage girl who is ostracized when her genetic test proves she's destined to become a murderer.

When Davy Hamilton's tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS)-aka the kill gene-she loses everything. Her boyfriend ditches her, her parents are scared of her, and she can forget about her bright future at Juilliard. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.

Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life. Davy wants to trust him; maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.


Um, how cool does that sound?  It's a great topic in this day and age where school shootings, gun control, and mental illnesses are hot topics.  I think this is going to be an awesome read.  Plus, I'm a big fan of that cover (her hair turning into DNA is amazing).  So have any of y'all heard about this book?  Are you dying to read it? (Please laugh at my pun.)
