Title:  Unwind

Author:  Neal Shusterman

Genre:  Science Fiction, Dystopian

Rating:  5 Stars

The Unwind dystology (a four-book series), by Neil Shusterman, is a book that will make fear for the future. Unwind is the first book in this young adult science-fiction series, and is my all-time favorite. Unwind has a dark topic:  after a war, a scientist discovers a way to use 99.44% of a human body for life-saving implants. Without the scientist’s permission, the government decides to begin the process of “unwinding,” in which parents can decide if they want their misbehaving kid to be unwound between the ages of 13 and 18.

I like how the author chose to write from many different perspectives, switching between characters for each chapter.  The characters act and talk like real people, and the plot is so full of action that once you start reading it, you can’t stop.  I would rate this book five stars out of five!
