No one knows how it happens. No one knows how it’s done. The harvesting of Unwinds is a secret medical ritual that stays within the walls of each harvesting clinic in the nation. In this way it is not unlike death itself, for no one knows what mysteries lie beyond those secret doors either.
What does it take to unwind the unwanted? It takes twelve surgeons, in teams of two, rotating in and out as there medical specialty is needed. It takes nine surgical assistants and four nurses. It takes three hours.
Roland is fifteen minutes in.

unwind by neal shusterman
"When, she wonders, did she stop being a child? The law says it was when she turned eighteen, but the law doesn’t know her."
I’m reading Unwholly the sequel to Unwind.
I SUGGEST YOU READ IT RIGHT NOW. Unwind is just, it’s so intense. It messes with your emotions and makes you think of things that you rather not think about, but then you have to think about and makes everything gray instead of black and white and leaves you thinking about it for days, months after it’s over and done with.
THAT IS WHAT I’M READING.
If you’ve never read Unwind then you need to get on that right now.
i just can’t.
HOW COULD THEIR PARENTS DO THAT. HOW COULD THEY EVEN THINK OF DOING THAT.
Like I feel even WORSE for Risa. She was sent to be unwound because of budget cuts. She doesn’t even have parents, but the damn government. BUDGET CUTS. Just because she wasn’t the best student, the best pianist, the best ward, she’s sent to the chop shop (the fuckin’ chop shop. that’s what they call it, god).
And then Lev. Oh Lev. Everything that you went through. You poor thirteen year old. You were raised to be slaughtered. YOU WANTED TO BE UNWOUND. And then, the meaning of your life just shatters and what are you left with? WHAT ARE YOU LEFT WITH.
AND THEN THE STORKING. THE BABIES. CONNOR TOTALLY TAKING THE BABY. YOU ARE. OMG STOP UGH CONNOR. YOU WERE THE ONE OUT OF THE THREE WHO FELT LEAST USEFUL YET YOU RAN AND YOU FUCKING BAMF GOD. YOU JUST LOOK AT YOU NOW.
AND THEN CY-FI. GOD “PLLEEEAASSSE DON’T UNWIND MEEE DON’T UNWIND ME. I’M SORRY, DON’T UNWIND MEEEE”
THEN THEN THEN THEN
no one likes
but no one deserves that
AND THEN IN THE END THEY’RE ALL IMPORTANT, THEY’VE ALL MADE A DIFFERENCE THEY’RE NO LONGER JUST DISCARDED CHILDREN BUT NEEDED BY OTHERS AND GOD
I WANT THE DAMN SEQUEL NOW
my goal is to bring the Unwind fandom to life.
The Hunger Games Recommendation List:
➵ If you liked The Hunger Games, I’m sure you’ll enjoy these books. There are plenty more books just as awesome as THG, but these eight books all pertain to the same type of book the THG series is—young adult and science fiction (some dystopian, some not) and are, of course, all great reads. Enjoy.
