Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming features we can't wait to get our hands off. Here's mine for this week!
Title: Project Cain
Author: Geoffrey Girad
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books For Young
Released: 3rd September 2013
Fifteen-year-old Jeff Jacobson had never heard of Jeffrey Dahmer, the infamous serial killer who brutally murdered seventeen people more than twenty years ago. But Jeff’s life changes forever when the man he’d thought was his father hands him a government file telling him he was constructed in a laboratory only seven years ago, part of a top-secret government cloning experiment called ‘Project CAIN’.
There, he was created entirely from Jeffrey Dahmer’s DNA. There are others like Jeff—those genetically engineered directly from the most notorious murderers of all time: The Son of Sam, The Boston Strangler, Ted Bundy . . . even other Jeffrey Dahmer clones. Some raised, like Jeff, in caring family environments; others within homes that mimicked the horrific early lives of the men they were created from.
When the most dangerous boys are set free by the geneticist who created them, the summer of killing begins. Worse, these same teens now hold a secret weapon even more dangerous than the terrible evil they carry within. Only Jeff can help track the clones down before it’s too late. But will he catch the ‘monsters’ before becoming one himself?
Whoa. This sounds just the tiniest bit creepy with the geneticist, but I seriously want to read this and meet Jeff. This sounds quite dark, and I have to say (because I can't seem to refrain myself at all anymore) that cover is just perfect. So yes, I am in insta-lust with this one.
Let me know what you guys are counting down the days for this week!
