Publisher's Summary

In a society where unwanted teens are salvaged for their body parts, three runaways fight the system that would "unwind" them.

Conner's parents want to be rid of him because he's a troublemaker. Risa has no parents and is being unwound to cut orphanage costs. Lev's unwinding has been planned since his birth, as part of his family's strict religion. Brought together by chance, and kept together by desperation, these three unlikely companions make a harrowing cross-country journey, knowing their lives hang in the balance.

If they can survive until their 18th birthdays, they can't be harmed - but when every piece of them, from their hands to their hearts, are wanted by a world gone mad, 18 seems far, far away.

In Unwind, Boston Globe/Horn Book Award winner Neal Shusterman challenges listeners' ideas about life - not just where life begins, and where it ends, but what it truly means to be alive.

    "Love this book!"

    What more can I say? I read it 5 years ago and loved it. Recently I listened to it again because my husband hadn't read it and we were going on a long road trip. Love it again! Can't wait to listen to the sequels - they weren't out when I originally read the book and I haven't read them yet.

    "An epic of teen angst proportions."

    The entire book is just every teens view that the entire adult doesn't understand them and is out to get them.

    "Creepy"

    At first your like "meh" but then its like "Wtf!". Once you get past the ridiculous premise it's a great book. when the author let's you sit in on the unwinding process it is just unnerving. very well written .

    I can be summed up in one word. Handsome, intelligent, honest, humble, brave, exciting, fun, kind, trustworthy, sexy! All these words work.

    "This is not his best work."

    This book has a lot of interesting ideas, but I'm more then willing to let the story end here for me. This book some how lacks the emotional depth of some of his other stand alone books.

    "YA story with all the tropes"

    I was really disappointed with this book. All the tropes of YA fiction: dystopian future, unbelievable plot designed to make everyone against the hero protagonist kids, characters that make illogical and inexplicable choices to further the plot.
    Audible really needs to add a tag for YA fiction. This is about the third book I've bought not realizing it was YA.

    "great story"

    I wasn't sure what I was expecting but this story was very thought out and good. I can believe in the world the author create and felt for all the characters in it. there was some twists and turns but this book was much better than I ever expected and recommend to anyone looking for something a little different.

    "Amazing"

    I actually hate reading, but this book was simply amazing. This book will actually affect your life and way of thinking of how precious lives are and how important it is to be an organ donator. It really gets to you when you see a troubled teen and you think in this life, that person could be on their way to being unwound. If you are in need of a good book, choose this one.

    "Awesome!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Unwind to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version of this book but will buy the books for my students for a reading group.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Unwind?

    The arrival at the Graveyard


    What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Loved his voice. Great inflection...made me feel like I was really there :)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Super
