Unwind

Unwind is a dystopian thriller by Neal Shusterman that follows three teens on the run from a government that believes in “unwinding” and body harvesting. This all sounds great and fine on paper, but what happens when you’re the one that’s selected to be unwound? Risa, Connor, and Lev find out. Risa is a ward of the state without any parents and without an overwhelming talent in her selected field; she needs to be unwound to make room in an overcrowded home. Connor is a trouble maker and has always pushed the limits in school and at home. His parents cannot handle an unruly child any longer. Lev is a tithe. He was born and raised as a donation. What happens when they fight back? What happens when they don’t want to be unwound? What happens when they run? This is the first in a series of four. Although controversial in topic, this disturbing novel inspires deep thought about organ donation and one’s personal right to make decisions regarding his or her body
