"The Predicteds" (a choice Lexi review)


This next novel is about genetic testing, questioning nature and nurture. Which one rules?It's always an interesting thing to think and talk about. So, without any more delay, here's The Predicteds by Christine Seifert.

Summary: "Daphne is the new girl in town and is having trouble fitting in. At least she has Jesse… sort of. He wants to be more than “just friends,” but there’s something he’s not telling her about his past. Something dangerous. When a female student is brutally attacked, police turn to PROFILE, a new program that can predict a student’s capacity for violent behavior, to solve the case. As the witch hunt ensues, Daphne is forced to question her feelings for Jesse—and what she will do if her first love turns out to be a killer." (YAAAY for whoever created Goodreads!!!)

Kind of predictable, but a very interesting look at the nature/nurture debate. Can you truly predict who is dangerous and who isn't? What are the repercussions of this, and what if it's not correct? Where does your personality lie? Is it embedded in your DNA, or did it develop thanks to how you were raised?

In Conclusion: It's an interesting look at the nature/nurture debate, so go for it if you're really into that debacle, or have debated about it before. It is very interesting nonetheless!

3/5 tests
