Unwind by Neal Shusterman


Unwind is a fantastic dystopian novel by Neal Shusterman. The overall story is between two people who believe in pro-choice and those who believe in pro-life. In not a so distant future there is a war called the Heartland war and there is a comprise where no abortions are to take place, but between the ages of 13-17 a parent can have their children unwound. This is when a child's body parts, well about 99% of everything that makes up a human is used to help another person. One example of this is lets say a person needs a new leg, then a person can get a leg from a child who has been unwound. The main saying of the people in this society is that "a person does not die, they just stop living".

This is the reason this novel is so good to see how the characters deal with the fact that they are going to be unwound. The decent novel because although this is a controversial topic, in the 21st century there are people who are pro-life and pro-choice I think that topic is discussed well in this novel. The author of Unwind does not really give his stance on this issue, but instead e lets his characters talk and decide their stance on this issue. There is a trailer for this novel, which real pulls a potential reader into reading the book.
