Waiting on Wednesday 11: Unwholly by Neal Shusterman

 Waiting on Wednesday is  a weekly bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we show off books that we want to read but have not been published yet.

Title: Unwholly (Unwnid #2)
Author: Neal Shusterman
Release Date: Some time 2012
Goodreads:  Sequel to Unwind.
Blurb to book 1, Unwind: Connor, Risa, and Lev are running for their lives.
The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child "unwound," whereby all of the child's organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn't technically end. Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state is not enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape and to survive.

Why I want it: I just finished Unwind, and thought it was absolutely amazing. And while some parts of it were tied up nicely, ******’s speech (censored for spoiler alert) promised something more to come.  Which I assume will be seen in Unwholly.

What’s everyone else waiting on this week?

  1. YES! I am super excited for this!! I read Unwind in... 2009, I think. And have been hopelessly waiting for the sequel ever since. I am SO glad it's nearly here! Well 2012 is near enough for me. I can't wait to read it! Unwind was ridiculously brilliant.
