Review: Neal Shusterman's "Unwind" (2007)


Unwind by Neal Shusterman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This YA novel, by Neal Shusterman, is as thought-provoking as it is entertaining. It takes on several weighty bioethical issues, including questions of personhood (when are human beings people?), the right to life (who has it and who doesn’t?), the right to control one’s body (when do others have the power to do physical things to you?), and organ transplantation. 588 more words
