Unwind by Neal Shusterman

Unwind by Neal Shusterman
Rating: PG
Score: 4 stars

After the Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights, a law was made for children between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, stating that parents can have their child "unwound", a process of all the child's organs being transplanted into different donors so that life does not technically end. Conner is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa is not talented enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, the small group has a chance to survive. And they won't stop fighting until that chance is won.

1. The story line is an interesting one and something that I have never read before until this book. This sci-fi fiction is a story for both boys and girls who love a futuristic/modern day adventure.

2. The book not only lets you into the mind of the main character, but also lets you into the mind of almost all the characters. Each chapter takes place from someone else's point of view and made it very interactive.

 3. I also liked the back stories of all the main characters, Conner, Risa and Lev. It  made the characters more interesting and different from each other. 

1. The story tended to get very slow in certain parts of the book. Sometimes one whole chapter moved too slow until the next. 

2. The movie isn't out yet.

Age Recommendation: 12+
