There’s still time to sign up for Teen. Book. Club., and read the book of the month, Unwind, by Neal Shusterman. We meet Saturday, June 30th @12noon in the computer lab on floor C2 in the Main Branch of the Tacoma Public Library. Unwind is an engaging and though-provoking read. I guarantee that you’ll be sucked into this dystopian thriller after the first few chapters.
Check out the popular fan created book trailer here:
Unwind – Shusterman
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. (goodreads.com)
