In a society where unwanted teens are salvaged for their body parts, three runaways fight the system that would "unwind" them Connor's parents want to be rid of him because he's a troublemaker. Risa has no parents and is being unwound to cut orphanage costs. Lev's unwinding has been planned since his birth, as part of his family's strict religion. Brought together by chance, and kept together by desperation, these three unlikely companions make a harrowing cross-country journey, knowing their lives hang in the balance. If they can survive until their eighteenth birthday, they can't be harmed -- but when every piece of them, from their hands to their hearts, are wanted by a world gone mad, eighteen seems far, far away. In Unwind, Boston Globe/Horn Book Award winner Neal Shusterman challenges readers' ideas about life -- not just where life begins, and where it ends, but what it truly means to be alive.

5.0 5/5: Unwind
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...

3.5 Unwind
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 ...

3.0 Unwind; pacy but a little shallow
The hype on this one is large indeed (“Before the Hunger Games came…”) and the number of people who love this book even larger (it’s running a 4.2 average on goodreads with over 100,000 reviews). So, pretty impressive. I think there’s even a movie in the pipeline… Unwind by Neal Shusterman is a dy...

5.0 Unwind - Mini Review. Well not really a review....
Source: Purchased Copy Completely brilliant as everyone told me it would be! I'm not writing a full review - I have the other three books to come and I'm going to read them all first then do a blogpost about the series as a whole. But seriously. HIGHLY recommended.
