If the kids in the breakfast club were all in trouble for being potential murderers this would be that book. I must say I liked the Part 2 much better than the first half of the book. This was due primary to my own person dislike of anxiety-causing, mistaken identity, no way out situations like the one Davy is thrust into after her diagnosis with HTS. I did enjoy the interactions she has with other "carriers." I did not like her winy self-loathing.
Part 2, once she makes it to the internment camp for "special" murderous-teens is much more in the vein of my preferred post-apocalyptic/dystopian story: girl gets beat up, girl grows stronger (mentally & physically, girl kicks-ass. And while I did like the male lead,Sean, he was kind of annoying in that he felt he constantly needed to save Davy.
Lastly, I understand that this was the first in a series, however, I felt as if it ended abruptly. There was a small climactic point towards the end of the book but not enough for carry the remainder of the novel. I would, though, read another installment!

Recommended if you like: dystopian, action, romance, child-murders (that's a genre right? I'm totally gonna start a bookshelf on Goodreads 4 books about child-murders, there are surprisingly quite a few)

OK, I see what people mean when they say that Davy is slightly conceited, but look where she comes from...but I like this book. It exposes human flaws in the form of Homicidal Tendency Syndrome. Personally, I believe that if all humans are imperfect and can be homicidal should they choose, every person in this book has HTS, technically. The characters like Gil, Sean, and Davy were just unfortunate to have the particular gene Wainworth blamed for HTS. That is my opinion, and I respect other opinions that disagree with my beliefs about this book.

I like this book very much, Homicidal Tendency Syndrome is very interesting. The main character Davina is a little conceited if you ask me, but along her journey you can see her change in attitude. She realize's she is not the only person in the world who has HTS and doesnt have hurtful intensions. Theres a sweet love story somewhere along in the book (THAT YOU WILL LOVE)....

I tossed this book aside in frustration and annoyance three times before I made it halfway through, then I just had to stop. Davy is condescending, shallow, judgmental, and stupid. I guess there's some action in the second half of the book, but I couldn't stand the MC long enough to get to it. Read the Kirkus review to get an idea of how bad this book is.
