This is a book I've already read and wanted to share with you as a 'I highly recommend.'
UNWIND is twisty, turny, fast-paced, never boring read. A completely different Dystopian thrill with a cool cover.
Connor, Risa, and Lev are running for their lives.
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.
And after you read UNWIND, then might as well get the sequel, which I've also read--UNWHOLLY. Sequels usually scare me. I hate loving book one only to be disappointed with book two. Such is not the case here. UNWHOLLY builds on the concept, enriching it, instead of repeating the same plot. Needless to say, I love it.
Plus, another cool cover.
to Connor, Lev, and Risa—and their high-profile revolt at Happy Jack
Harvest Camp—people can no longer turn a blind eye to unwinding. Ridding
society of troublesome teens while simultaneously providing much-needed
tissues for transplant might be convenient, but its morality has finally
been brought into question. However, unwinding has become big business,
and there are powerful political and corporate interests that want to
see it not only continue, but also expand to the unwinding of prisoners
and the impoverished.
Cam is a product of unwinding; made
entirely out of the parts of other unwinds, he is a teen who does not
technically exist. A futuristic Frankenstein, Cam struggles with a
search for identity and meaning and wonders if a rewound being can have a
soul. And when the actions of a sadistic bounty hunter cause Cam’s fate
to become inextricably bound with the fates of Connor, Risa, and Lev,
he’ll have to question humanity itself.
Rife with action and
suspense, this riveting companion to the perennially popular Unwind
challenges assumptions about where life begins and ends—and what it
means to live.
