I’m currently reading Unravel by Neal Shuterman
Plot: In the future, there is a certain program where teens from 13 - 18 are able to be unwound. Unwound is the process of which young kids and teens are put to sleep and have their organs donated to someone else that may be in dire need of them. The people that choose the children do it based off of who they are. If a child is a delinquent and causes issues, then, a person may request for them to be unwound whether the kid likes it or not. They could also be birthed and raised just for the sake of being unwound meaning that it’s the entire reason that they exist in the first place.
Take three teens, Connor, a troublemaker whose parents have ordered for him to be unwound, Risa, a young girl that has the dream of being a professional pianist but, due to terrible circumstances, she is to be unwound. Terrified and not wanting to die, these two teens must work together and find another teen named Lev who was born just to then be unwound later on in life. Kids like Lev are known as Tithes. As Risa and Connor seek Lev out in order to save his life as well as theirs, these rebellious teens are on the hunt for some others that are just like them in order to free the other teens from a future of death as well as battle the grim system that is on the hunt to take these three away and punish them for denying their fate(s).
With 4 books in the series and an announced film adaption, these thrilling, suspenseful, action packed, dystopian mystery will either tug at your heart strings, gasp in horror, or rip your hair out from the glorious amounts of brutal imagery, plot twists, and mesmerizing fight scenes. Unwind pictures a future that is both depressing and brutal that will make real life teens thankful for being alive and not having the destiny to die without having any way of backing out.
Reading the first book and damn…it is SOOOO good so far!
