In a society where unwanted and troublesome teens are salvaged for their body parts, Connor, Risa and Lev continue to fight against the system that would 'unwind' them. Thanks to their high-profile revolt at the Happy Jack Harvest Camp, people can no longer turn a blind eye to unwinding.Ridding society of so-called troublesome teens might be convenient, but its morality has finally been brought into question and a new law passed. However, unwinding has become big business, and there are powerful political and corporate interests, not to mention the illegal 'Parts Pirates', that want to see it not only continue, but expand.
Connor, Risa and Lev each struggle to rescue as many AWOL teens as possible and offer them sanctuary. But life at the Graveyard is hard, rivalries bubble under the surface and the cracks are beginning to show.
And then there is Cam, a teen who does not exist. Made entirely out of parts from one hundred other 'unwinds', Cam is a 21stcentury Frankenstein, a rewound, struggling to find a true identity and meaning, and a place in society. But when a sadistic bounty hunter who takes "trophies" from all the 'unwinds' he captures starts to pursue Connor, Lev and Risa, Cam finds his own fate inextricably bound with theirs…
This book has literally turned me into a nut.
I was swearing, crying, laughing and jumping out of my couch reading this book. It makes me want to give the first book one star and I'm not saying it is bad. Unwind is one of the best books I've read this summer. It's that good. I'm not gonna write a long review as I never can (But I swear I can do one for this book.) The pacing is great and everything comes together as the book comes to its climax without a gap. I love that no one in this book has bad intentions in what they are doing (Besides Roberta, I had no idea what that woman is up to.) First, I thought Starkey is such a piece of work but as you put yourself in his position, I would say it is not that bad. Anyway, I feel so lucky to have a chance to read this book and am so ready to go to the bookstore and get the third one.
