Hey guys! It is time for another Goodreads Monday! Is it me, or has February gone REALLY slowly? Anyway, this weeks pick for me is a book that I have heard a lot of positive things about and I can’t wait to get a copy!

Unwind by Neal Shusterman

Published: November 6th 2007 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

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.

The blurb sounds absolutely amazing and unique and I can’t wait to grab a copy! Also… it’s been TEN years since it was first published!!

    I’ve heard a lot of amazing things about Neal Shusterman and his books. I haven’t read any of them myself but I really hope you love this one Lauren, based on what people have said I’m sure you will though. πŸ™‚
    Also wow, hearing this was published ten years ago makes me feel really old for some reason!
