Unwind: Book #1
By Neal Shusterman
Narrated by Luke Daniels / 10 hours 10 minutes
Bookseller Recommendation


“Life is inviolable from conception. That is, until the child reaches the age of thirteen. From then until the child reaches the age of eighteen, parents can have their child “unwound.” All they have to do is fill out the paperwork, and the unwinding process beings. One of the things that I liked about this story was the way Neal Shusterman kept you in the dark about how some things worked until just the right moment. One of those being just what exactly happens to someone when they are “unwound.” When that moment came, where you finally get to see just what an “unwound” goes through, it was… haunting to say the least. That is the only word I can think of to describe that moment. I have come to expected nothing less from Neal Shusterman.”

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 talented 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.
