I don't know what happens to our consciousness when we're unwound...I don't even know when that consciousness starts. But I do know this...We have a right to our lives!
We have a right to choose what happens to our bodies! We deserve a world where both those things are possible.
Unwind - Neal Shusterman

Reproductive rights has always been a sensitive topic people love to avoid, but Neal Shusterman confronts it in such an unbelievable way it becomes accessible. The best part is how he throws in all of these key elements to the "discussion" (beyond just the black and white polarity) without making it feel political or lecture-y, with such varied opinions even among the "unwinds" about how things should be. The plot seemlessly sparks interesting questions in the midst of good ole entertainment. That's why science fiction is such an amazing genre. It sneaks in underlying themes while you're distracted by awesome characters, action sequences and, oh yeah, science fiction! No matter where you fall on the spectrum, it's worth a read (or two)!

“You see, a conflict always begins with an issue - a difference of opinion, an argument. But by the time it turns into a war, the issue doesn't matter anymore, because now it's about one thing and one thing only: how much each side hates the other.”

“[...] every time he forces himself to think before acting, it's her voice in his head telling him to slow down. He wants to tell her, but she's always so busy in the medical jet—and you don't just go to somebody and say, "I'm a better person because you're in my head.”

“They meet in the girls' bathroom. The last time they were forced to meet in a place like this, they took separate, isolated stalls. Now they share one. They hold each other in the tight space, making no excuses for it. There's no time left in their lives for games, or for awkwardness, or for pretending they don't care about each others, and so they kiss as if they've done it forever. As if it is as crucial as the need for oxygen.”
