Unwind by Neal Shusterman
Reviewed by Aidan Hall (Year 12)
This book is about 3 kids, Risa, Conner, and Levi who are marked to be dismantled for their body parts, while being fully alive and conscious. Risa and Conner go AWOL dragging Levi, who wishes tobe 'unwound' with them. The 3 kids have to avoid special 'juvy-cops' in their bid for freedom until they reach 18, if they can get to 18 they will survive. To achieve this the 3 make their way to the Graveyard, run by an ex-military Admiral who protects these buwanted kids from the authorities. It is really exciting and quite horrific in places.
Basically I like it because its a book about defying the system to have the right to do what you want to do.
