In a society where unwanted teens are salvaged for their body parts, three runaways fight the system that would unwind them.

Connera (TM)s parents want to be rid of him because hea (TM)s a troublemaker. Risa has no parents and is being unwound to cut orphanage costs. Leva (TM)s unwinding has been planned since his birth, as part of his familya (TM)s strict religion. Brought together by chance, and kept together by desperation, these three unlikely companions make a harrowing cross-country journey, knowing their lives hang in the balance. If they can survive until their eighteenth birthday, they cana (TM)t be harmed a but when every piece of them, from their hands to their hearts, are wanted by a world gone mad, eighteen seems far, far away.

Synopsis:

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

Synopsis:

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.
