Reading for a Lifetime Together

I read Unwind by Neal Shusterman. In America, in the future, parents can “unwind” their kids. Unwinding is where all the body parts are taken and sent to donation banks; it’s an alternative to killing your child. Connor is being unwound because he’s a troublemaker. Risa is being unwound because she’s a ward of the state and has no promising talent. Lev is a tithe, a child born just to be unwound as an offering to God. When Connor is trying to escape being captured he kidnaps Lev and Risa joins him. The three of them begin traveling together. Lev tries to tell on them but Risa and Connor get away leaving Lev by himself. Luckily, Connor, Risa, and Lev end up at the Graveyard together, a refuge for runaway unwinds. Later on all three of them end up at the same harvesting camp as well. Connor is the first one due to be unwound but an explosion happens and he and Risa are able to get back to the Graveyard to run things there. The book overall was good, I liked reading it for the most part. The whole unwinding thing was a little weird so I don’t think I’m going to finish the series.
