Description

From New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan, Uninvited is a chilling and suspenseful story about a girl whose DNA brands her a killer, perfect for fans of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and Confessions of a Murder Suspect.

Davy had everything-a terrific boyfriend, the homecoming crown, a bright future at Juilliard-but when her genetic tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome, she loses it all. Uninvited from her prestigious school, avoided by her friends and family, she is placed in a special class with other "carriers" who are treated like the murderers they someday might become.

Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life and tells her that she alone controls her actions-not the code embedded into her DNA. But even if she can learn to trust him, can Davy trust herself?

Back cover copy

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. She doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day Davy will kill someone.

Uninvited from her prep school, Davy is thrown into a special class for HTS carriers. She couldn't be more different from her fellow classmates, especially Sean, whose "H" tattoo is proof of his violent past. But with no one else to turn to, Sean might be the only person she can trust. Maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.
