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 enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape and to survive.

Under this bill, human life is protected from the moment of conception until the age of 13. Between the ages of 13 & 17, parents can choose to have their children "unwo...
This is a hard book to review because I have so many problems with it, but I love it so much. Also, I feel weird for loving it because it’s a severely messed-up story. Seriously, unwinding is yucky business. People have been telling me for years that I need to read Unwind, but I’ve been avoiding i...
I picked Unwind up from a recommendation on Goodreads...and I wasn't disappointed. In a powerful piece of writing, Neil Shusterman takes us to a future world where abortion is illegal - but teenagers can be harvested for all their organs and body parts from the ages of thirteen to eighteen in a proc...
It's been almost a month since I finished this and I'm still processing how I feel about it. The big problem is that I don't entirely buy the set-up. I'm a parent and, like most parents I know, I would lay down my life for her. Having her 'unwound' is simply unthinkable. I discussed this with a ...
