Unwind
Neal Shusterman

In Unwind, Boston Globe/Horn Book Award winner Neal Shusterman challenges readers' ideas about life – not just where life begins, and where it ends, but what it truly means to be alive. In a society where unwanted teens are salvaged for their body parts, three runaways fight the system that would "unwind" them.
