Waiting on Wednesday: The Uninvited

 
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we cannot wait to get our hands on.
 I am waiting on:
Uninvited (Uninvited, #1)
Title: The Uninvited
Author: Sophie Jordan
Series: Uninvited #1
Publisher: HarperTeen
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.
The first in a two-book series, Uninvited tackles intriguing questions about free will, identity, and human nature. Steeped in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan's trademark mix of gripping action and breathless romance, this suspenseful tale is perfect for fans of James Patterson, Michelle Hodkin, and Lisa McMann.
Why am I Waiting?
I like the idea of exploring the idea of DNA verse Free Will. It is an interesting to explore if something says you are a killer, do you actually turn into a killer. I am curious to see where Sophie Jordan goes with this story.

What are you waiting on?

I literally just read and reviewed this book! It is pretty great! I was hesitant to read this book, because I hated the Firelight series. BUT, this book was terrific! And part of a duology, which is kind of awesome :D

Happy holidays!
