I'm still digesting this one. I went through several emotions while reading this book - anger, disbelief, sadness, etc. At times, I felt that it got a little preachy on the pro-life side (which didn't sit well with me), but then it would switch and feel like the author was making a case for pro-choice. Perhaps I am over-thinking what was simply meant to be a good YA book, but I have a feeling I'll be thinking about it for a while.

Kenya (BookedUpBoss) I didnt really "get" the advocacy for either side too much, like the back and forth was a balanced enough. It is interesting to think about what terminated babies might think about being terminated once they are older.... mind boggeling. And the 100% living tissue thing and the requirements during the unwinding... and getting the arm... and the exclusion of the diabled. It was so good. Thinking about it now, I want to give it an extra star.
