Waiting On Wednesday (59) Uninvited by Sophie Jordan

 

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine.
For this weeks Waiting On Wednesday I chose Uninvited by Sophie Jordan.

 Expected Publication:
 February 25,2014
You can’t change your DNA…even when it says you’re a murderer.

When Davy tests positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome, aka “the kill gene,” she loses everything. Once the perfect high school senior, she is uninvited from her prep school and abandoned by her friends and boyfriend. Even her parents are now afraid of her—although she’s never hurt a fly. Davy doesn’t feel any differently, but genes don’t lie. One day she will kill someone.

Without any say in the matter, Davy is thrown into a special class for HTS carriers. She has no doubt the predictions are right about them, especially Sean, who already bears the “H” tattoo as proof of his violence. Yet when the world turns on the carriers, Sean is the only one she can trust. Maybe he’s not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.

 Why Am I Waiting?
The concept of this book sounds fabulous. As bizarre as it sounds I can picture someone being ostracized for having the wrong genes. I'm also really curious what event caused the Government to start testing for a kill gene. I bet the propaganda machine was working overtime when they approved that bill. On a purely superficial side look at that cover! I love that hair!!

Since I'm curious, Have you heard of Uninvited before? 
What do you think of the cover? 
If HTS really existed would you want to know if you were a carrier of the gene?
That about wraps up my Waiting On Wednesday for this week. Feel free to leave a link to your Wednesday memes in the comments below, I love finding new books to read. Like what you see? Please share!
