2014 just started, but this is my favorite novel of year

Unwind (Unwind, #1)


By: Neal Shusterman

Genre: YA dystopian

Pages: 335

Published: 2007

Read: January

5 out of 5

II have mentioned that I am getting bored and sick of dystopian novels, however this one was FANTASTIC. Shusterman is an exceptional writer and with so many twist and turns, the reader never gets bored with the plot. The novel is placed sometime in the future during a period of war. Due to the issues with survival, a Bill of Life was instituted that allows parents to “unwind” their teens and donated their organs and body parts to adults that need them to survive. The teens are still considered alive, but "Living in a divided state"; therefore parents don't feel guilty for "killing their children". There are four novels in this series and I am very excited to read the rest. I feel this series could be the next Hunger Games and there is talk of making a movie.  I highly recommend this series to fans to YA, Hunger Games, and dystopian novels in addition to anyone needing a fix for a great novel.
He also wrote the popular Everlost Trilogy - website is .
