In a society where unwanted teens are salvaged for their body parts, three runaways fight the system that would 'unwind' them. There's Connor, the badboy troublemaker who constantly gets into fights and causes his parents much suffering, Lev, the 'tithe', a human sacrifice to God, who's been prepared his entire life for his unwinding, and Risa, the pianist from an orphanage who's being unwound to cut costs and downsize. They must fight for their lives until their eighteenth birthday, or risk being unwound, a fate worse than death itself.
I think Unwind is my new favorite book. I had read other books by Neal Shusterman, and I had loved them, but this one takes the cake! It's awesome. I'm at a lack of words with how to describe the sheer awesomeness of this book. You honestly just have to take my word and read it. If you loved the Hunger Games, I'm sure you'd like this book.
