Comparing this book to The Scarlet Letter and Minority Report was spot on. As the government begins testing for HTS (Homicidal Tendency Syndrome) and branding people with the syndrome that have reported done anything even slightly violent, Davy finds herself caught up in the net. Kicked our of her private school because here DNA has tested positive, she is sent to "the cage" - along with 5 other carriers.
Davy's story was brilliantly written. Her shock, shame, and confusion of her suddenly changed circumstances. As she meets new carriers and discovers that there are others that are just like her - branded without reason - and others that have embraced their status letting their baser insticts take over. Sean seems to straddle the line between the two. A seemingly violent person, yet different than the others in his reasons for letting it out.
I was amazed at how quickly this book took over my day and I had a very difficult time stopping. At the end we have a semblence of a resolution, but I can tell there is so much more to be told still.
