Adventures in YA Episode 050: Unwind by Neal Shusterman

It’s time for another quarterly book club discussion! Unwind by Neal Shusterman is a dystopian tale of a society where unwanted teens are salvaged for their body parts and three runaways fight the system that would “unwind” them. Unwind is a book that challenges readers about life, not just where life begins, and where it ends, but what it truly means to be alive.
