I Am Grateful For: Unwind by Neal Shusterman

Unwind by Neal Shusterman

Love this series! Ok so I've only read the first one, but my daughter and several of my students have read all that are out so far and they LOVE them, so I'm sure I will too :) Great series filled with lots of actions and raising lots of questions.  Check it out!

Connor, Risa, and Lev are running for their lives.

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.
