Plot: In this dystopian future that Neal Shusterman has created in UnwindThe process of "Unwinding" a child is not considered murder. They believe that your just in an undivided state. Until theage of18 a child's legal guardian can have them disassembled and their organs go to the people who are in need of them. The process of Unwinding began shortly after the Heartland War. After America's second war ended a law passed that legal determination that life is inviolable from conception until age thirteen, at which point families can choose to retroactively abort their child.Even though Abortion is illegal, it has arisen "Storking". This occurs when a teenage mother does not want her baby and placesit on the doorstep of an unsuspecting family. Many of these families do care for their now storked children, but they may choose to have these children unwound later, particularly if those children are deviants or if they become an unnecessary expense.Not all unwinds aremiscreants. Some parents may choose to "Tithe" their children. Tithes are considered by many to be a higher class than ordinary children, in contrast to unwinds, which are a lower class.Clappers are not interested in saving lives. This latest form of terrorism involves injecting unstable chemicals into a persons bloodstream.They are literally "Human Bombs". Unlike clappers and tithes, Connor and Risa are fighting to continue their life in an undivided state. However, their guardians have signed paperwork in triplicate to have them unwound. Connor has always been a troublemaker and his parents are fed up. Risa is a diligent ward of the state; unfortunately, she has reached her potential and is now being cleared out to make room for newly arriving children. Connor chooses to flee from his parents before they can send him to Harvest Camp, but the police catch up to him on the freeway. Always impulsive, Connor manages to use the chaos of the freeway to his advantage and escapes into the woods. Before leaving, Connor rescues a human tithe, Lev, and joins forces with Risa. The three of them escape together.
