|In a society where unwanted teens are salvaged for their body parts, three runaways fight the system that would "unwind" them. In this work, "Boston Globe/Horn Book" Award-winner Shusterman challenges readers'' ideas about life--not just where life begins and where it ends, but what it truly means to be alive.|
"Beyond his pulse-pounding pace, the cliffhangers and the bombshells, Shusterman has a gift for extrapolating the effects of alien circumstances on ordinary people and everyday behavior." 11/26/2007 "Characters live and breathe; they are fully realized and complex, sometimes making wrenchingly difficult decisions. This is a thought-provoking, well-paced read...." 1/1/2008 "In the quiet moments of safety, philosophical explorations of what it means to be alive, what the rights of children are, and whether or not one's soul resides in the whole body or in individual pieces unfold, and these haunting debates will likely linger in the reader's mind even after the riveting plot fades." 2/1/2008
