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.
From the Publisher:

In a society where unwanted teens are salvaged for their body parts, three runaways fight the system that would "unwind" them

Connor's parents want to be rid of him because he's a troublemaker. Risa has no parents and is being unwound to cut orphanage costs. Lev's unwinding has been planned since his birth, as part of his family's strict religion. Brought together by chance, and kept together by desperation, these three unlikely companions make a harrowing cross-country journey, knowing their lives hang in the balance. If they can survive until theireighteenth birthday, they can't be harmed -- but when every piece of them, from their hands to their hearts, are wanted by a world gone mad, eighteen seems far, far away.

In Unwind, Boston Globe/Horn Book Award winner Neal Shusterman challenges readers' ideas about life -- not just where life begins, and where it ends, but what it truly means to be alive.

Praise

"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

"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
