Unwind
Unwind | Neal Shusterman
For use in schools and libraries only. Fast-forward to the future, after the Second Civil War. According to new laws, life is inviolable from the moment of birth until age 13. Between the ages of 13 and 18, however, parents can have their child "unwound," a process by which the child's organs are transplanted into different donors so that life doesn't technically end.

Technically #YA, but I think everyone should read this book. Beyond enveloping you into the story, this novel is pretty realistic: war resulting from relentless stubbornness and hatred effecting generations. We expect constant model behavior, always thinking about the results of your actions: attitude, school, family and yet adults have a knack for screwing up sh*t for generations to come never thinking about the consequences. #teamnosleep

MeesesPieces I loved this series and I love Neal Shusterman! 2mo
LibrarianRyan Crazy isn‘t it!!!!! 2mo
ReadingOverSleeping @MeesesPieces love your handle first of all! I just ordered the second from our library to continue the chaos. @LibrarianRyan yes this was a crazy freaking book! The excerpts from REAL NEWS in the intro of the parts is terrifying! Bill of Life may not be plausible, yet, but the whole concept of war and conflict is so relatable in today! This is a scary read! 2mo
MeesesPieces @ReadingOverSleeping thank you! My handle is a nickname I had for my dog. I loved the Unwind series so much I had to buy all of the books! Theres another book of the series called Unbound which is stories from the Unwind World. It‘s also very good. It is terrifying to imagine this as the world we live in! If you haven‘t read Neal Shustermans Scythe yet I do definitely recommend it! 2mo
ReadingOverSleeping @MeesesPieces thank you! I'll add them to my list! He's a brilliant writer, I'm really enjoying his work! I can imagine how intense Unbound must be, Cy-Fi's story was so disturbing in unwind 2mo

Did a quick mental purge with light reading and I'm ready to dive into another dystopian novel after The Hunger Games. Recommended by a fellow litsian, I'm looking forward to this book! The cover states 'What if your parents could unwind you?' ... I'm intrigued because wtf does that even mean?! 😮👀

Man, this story was still has heart-wrenching & explosive as the first time I read it. Connor is one of my all time favorite characters — gritty & warm-hearted. Both make up for the slightly confusing world-building. I still have a REALLY hard time believing that in a futuristic world the abortion debate was somehow put to rest without a single discussion about what to do if the pregnancy is not viable/endangers the health of the mother. ★★★★☆.

This is a science-fiction novel which I would assign students to read individually. This novel takes place in the US and is set in the future. In this future world, there is a second Civil War which is far over reproductive rights. The resolution of the war was that between age of 13 and 18, parents can have their child “unwound,” whereby all their organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn‘t technically end.

SofiaRoselli I found a website with multiple lesson plans, resources, activities, worksheets and quizzes. For ESOL strategies I would pair students a small groups to complete activities on the book. This is ESOL strategy 2. For UDL, I chose strategy 8.3, foster collaboration and community, because I would pair the students in small groups.

Abortions do not exist after the Second Civil War, parents can now give their children up to be unwound if from 13-18 they do not reach their potential in life. Connor escapes only to find Risa and Lev who are also trying to escape their unwound destiny. I loved this book, every pro lifer and pro choice person needs to read this. Great YA book that uses today‘s challenges of how people think that their way will solve all problems.

You see, a conflict always begins with an issue- a difference of opinion, an arguement. But by the time it turns into a war, the issue doesn't matter anymore, because now it's about one thing and one thing only: how much each side hates the other.

This book was a wild ride, in all the best ways possible! Neal Shusterman is always about to creat worlds that I can‘t help but fall into. I love young adult books like the, that bring forward real world issues in an exciting and understandable way. There was not one character in this novel that I didn't want to read more about, and that is so very rare.I flew through this book, and found that there were no parts that dragged on.

Initially when I realized that I picked this book up and it was dystopian, I was a little disappointed because there‘s just SO MUCH of it lately and I‘m getting burnt out! But this, is unique and fresh. It really takes the topic of pro life versus pro choice and tackles the what if‘s in a way that is new and thought provoking. Lots of ethical questions and grey areas in this book. It‘s absolutely worth reading!

Unwind by Neal Shusterman is a SF novel and ALA Best Book for Young Adults winner. This book is about a boy named Connor and how he must deal with the fact that his parents are sending him to be unwound. The setting is in the future after a civil war where children can be sent to “harvesting camps” where their organs are donated and they will live on forever through their donated organs.

Gabylaurel10 Although the book seems creepy, it is a really good read that would be perfect for high school students to do an LC with. http://www.litcircles.org/Overview/overview.html This book lined up with UDL principles 4.1 and 4.2 of having vary methods for response and optimize access to tools and assistive technologies. Especially using LC and allowing them to do digital LC roles. 1y
Gabylaurel10 This would also work perfectly with ESOL strategy 10 of working in cooperative groups! #UCFLAR3414SuB18 1y

5/5👐🏻. Fascinating concept. In this world 13-17 year olds that don‘t make the cut to continue to adulthood are harvested for their organs. The story is told from three different perspectives with each narrator providing a different background. Looking forward to the next one.

Ok, I have a confession. When I got my #FreakyFriday list I just picked books at random. I didn't read a review, blurb, nothing. Each read was totally blind and judged by cover. First sight, I was thinking X-files, alien abduction. Was not excited about it at all, tbh. Holy hell was I shocked! Absolutely hooked from page 1! What a ride this was and such a unique story. I will totally be continuing the series!! @BookFreakOut @Clwojick @monalyisha

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Human life is protected from the moment of conception until age 13. Between ages 13-17, parents can choose to have “problem” children “unwound.” Unwinding is a process that harvests over 95% of the body for transplants to others. The thought is that the child continues to live in a “divided” state. LOVED this book and the narration is top notch. The description of an unwinding is chilling.

The Unwind series is a collection of books that take you on an escalating journey of suspense, romance, and violence. It shows you the reality of living in a dystopian society and the high expectations that are expected to be followed. In this book, if you weren't fit for the society, society took you to a place where there was torture, fear, and hate. All of this was done so they could create the illusion of a "perfect society."

Quite possibly the best YA book I've ever read. And definitely the most disturbing. A group of runaway kids that are destined to go to "harvest camps" is the premise for this eerie dystopian series. Makes you question why we need (or expect?) to live up to a potential that society dictates...
Definitely a book to be read again. I've purchased this book numerous times for friends 'cause that's how excited I am about it ?

This SF book is a great literature circle book for fifth graders! Neal Shusterman puts you and your students into a science fiction world where children at the age of 13-18 can be chosen to retroactively get rid of a child through a process called "unwinding". Also a great book for students to read throughout the school year! http://www.nlc.state.ne.us/Youth/OBOK/2010/Activities.pdf #UCFLAE3414su17

DrSpalding After looking at your resource, I think this book is more appropriate for middle to high school students. However, this kind of SF is very popular. 2y

Can't decide what I really think about this one... I feel like the "present" US setting requires a lot of suspension on belief and logic... & I'm giving it some side-eye because its a dude author who created this post- "war about reproductive rights" scenario. But I did get sucked in a bit near the end.

Tell me if you read it / thoughts.
