Unwind - Book Review
Unwind by Neal Shushterman "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." A hard topic, but can bring up the conversation of what type of world we are leaving for the future.
Unwind by Neal Shusterman. In a society where unwanted teens are salvaged for their body parts, three runaways fight the system that would "unwind" them.
This is a young adult book, at least in theory, but it deals with the after effects a vicious war between pro-life and pro-choice factions. In this America, families may choose to "unwind" their unwanted teens for their body parts. If they can survive until they're 17, they are safe. This is the story of three such children and their attempt to escape their fate. Intriguing, absorbing, downright disturbing, but fascinating! Try it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9snP4HuRsr4

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - my FAVOURITE book (but not my favourite cover)
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak- Was on my "list to read" before it hits the theater! AMAZING and heart wrenching and beautiful and heinous and inspiring and lovely. A must read. A movie will never do the art of words and descriptions justice.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak- an amazing book
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak- I love this book. Love the language, the words, the story... Everything.

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate (absolutely not) Reviewed by Donalyn Miller | Nerdy Book Club
Disney is in negotiations to buy the rights to Katherine Applegate & Patricia Castelao’s Newbery Medal-winning children’s book, 'The One and Only Ivan'. The book is about a silverback gorilla (Ivan) and a baby elephant (Stella) who hatch a plan to escape from their cages — cages located in the middle of a shopping mall! Making this story all the more marvelous, it’s based on actual events. Well, loosely based. Very loosely.
