The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child ?unwound, ? whereby all of the child's organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn?t technically end. Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state, is not talented enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape ? and to survive

In this futuristic thriller, Shusterman creates a world that blurs the line between life and death and challenges ideas about what it means to be alive.
