More about the Story:

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.

What a ride! I am in complete awe of the world that Shusterman threw me in and dragged me through. It blows my mind that he can think of a plot that consists of a world like the one that Connor, Risa, and Levi live in. How absolutely terrifying. In this world, if a child does not meet the parent’s expectations, is too bad, or considered a tithe to God, their parents can have them unwound. Technically, they will still be alive in another person’s body.

This book follows the lives of Connor, a boy who has done wrong and finds out that his parents have signed for his unwind. Risa, a ward of the state that has reached her full potential and is scheduled to be unwind. And Levi, the tenth child who was solely brought into this world for a tithe. It is a story about how these three lives intermingle and then disconnect, all while being on the run.

I loved the character Risa because she was the main constant in this book. She has a great head on her shoulders and is intelligent beyond her age. But Connor was my absolute favorite. In this story, you see just how much he grows into maturity and how he becomes a man.

I will admit that after reading this, I called my mom and told her thank you for not having me unwound.
