** spoiler alert ** Wow. What a concept!

Storking (leaving newborns on random doorsteps and the receiving people are obligated to raise the children until they are thirteen when the option to Unwind them opens) and Unwinding (harvesting the body parts of teens between the ages of 13 and 18) are the solutions to this fascinating take on the pro-life/pro-choice debate. It also covers the right to die - when does life begin and end?

This is a near perfect book, marred only by a couple of editing misses and a very neatly tied up ending. Great storytelling and characters you come to really care about.
