      Whether you are pro-life or pro-choice for abortion, you have to agree unwinding is wrong. In the distant future, after a second civil war in the United States, the Bill of Life has been signed. The Bill of Life states that abortions are illegal but it is ok to unwind your child. Unwinding is a process when the parents send their child of thirteen to eighteen for them to be harvested of every part of them and be used in someone else with the reasoning that they are still alive, but alive in separate parts. Kids might be unwound after some kind of crime or trouble, while others have been preparing it their entire life and are called tithes. Naturally some kids don’t like the idea of being unwound so many of them run away which brings us to the story of Connor. Connor makes plans as soon as he finds out he is being unwound. In the beginning of his escape he causes quite a ruckus and ends up getting away with a tithe and an orphan girl being unwound. Now they just have to make it till they’re eighteen.

           

            I have been looking for a good series to get sucked into and I think I finally found it. Neal Shusterman already has released the second novel in the series called UnWholly, which I can’t wait to read. Unwind started off a little slow like any other book, but accelerated very quickly. It keeps you thinking the entire time and I recommend it for anyone.
