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?

    My friend recommended this book to me, and after reading it, I found it extremely thought-provoking, it makes me questioned about life, about trust, about friend, and everything else that I believed in. Davy has a perfect life, until she was tested positive for HTS, which is also known as the kill gene, she is labeled as a murder, who everyone is afraid of. I think it is really unfair for Davy, just because she has the kill gene, doesn’t mean she is going to g hurt anyone or even commit murder., Davy keeps believing that she is not the kind of person, I really appreciate how Davy does not letting her gene defines who she is. is, she fights till the end, I admire her courage and bravery. She believed in herself that she will be able to undefined the identity of being a carriers. I really like a quotes inside the book, “Never forget that we are more than the genetic side. We can be more than labels applied to is. We can be more than what others whisper behind our backs. Free will exists. We need to choose to be the best we can be and we need to help others to do the same. Believe in yourself. ” This quotes is relatable, you shouldn’t let anything define who you are, since you’re the one who know you the best, and you shouldn’t let others choose your future.

      Reading through the story, I think to myself, How can life be so unfair? But it can be, life is unfair. I love how I can relate to the main character, sometimes I just feel so unfair but in other people's position, it's what they think. Is it wrong to slap your boyfriend for being a jerk? I certainly don't think so! I'm so excited to read the second book of how she escaped. I really like how Sean treated her :)

        This book, Uninvited by Sophie Jordan is one of the best books I've read this year. At the beginning, a popular, intelligent, and beautiful girl named Davy owned high school, but one day, she is expelled and everything goes wrong. She was informed to be a carrier who had perfect kill genes, so she goes to a special class for carriers. But after a catastrophe of other carriers killing hundreds of people, she is invited to a special training school. My favorite character in the book is Sean O'Rourke, who is the guy lead in this story. I really like him because he's straightforward, caring, brave, and loves Davy so much. One of my favorite scenes in this book is when Davy breaks up with Zac. It basically showed how Davy being a carrier changed everything and how people started to treat her. I would definitely recommend this to people that liked Divergent or Hunger Games, if you like an adventurous, romance, and a little bit of sci-fi books, definitely read this!
