what if you were an Unwind?

Unwind by Neal Shusterman

The Second Civil war was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception, until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child “unwound,” whereby all of the child’s organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn’t technically end.

Connor is too difficult for his parents to control.

Risa, a ward of the state is not talented enough to be kept alive.

And Lev, a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound.

Together, they may have a chance to escape- and to survive.

This is my review:

If you want your eyes to be opened to the truth, not just where we are headed, but where we are, then read this book.

The difference between alive and not-alive is being loved, that is the truth.

Want to find out more? Want to agree? Want to disagree? Read it, think about it and let it change the way you see the world around you, and the people you love, forever.

While you read, this review, the book, the back cover, the title, ask yourself this question:

What if I was being unwound?

Yes, I love this book; I think it should be required reading in high school.
