Unwind takes place in a dystopian society where parents can have their children "unwound" (essentially murdered by organ donation) if they are displeased with them. The novel follows the stories of three unwinds: Connor, Risa and Lev. They must navigate their way through the dangerous obstacle of a society out to get them, and find their place, despite their displacement. This novel provides an interesting insight into the question of valuing life: what is living? what is justified? what do we need to take responsibility for? I enjoyed some of the humor and irony in the book, for example, when we finally realize who Humphrey Dunfee's parents are. I think this is an appropriate novel for teens young and old, male and female. It could be used to create a political discussion in a classroom.
