Wondering about a future world where you may never really die? Or at least parts of you may never die. You might want to try Unwind by Neal Schusterman. Connor is 15 and gets into trouble a lot. Risa is an orphan in an orphanage that wants to cut costs. Lev's family is very religious and has been planning his fate since his birth. They are all scheduled to be 'unwound'. They won't technically die--they will live on because all of their body parts and organs will be harvested for use in other bodies. This is their story of their rebellion against what the adults in their lives have decided for them. It's not easy to escape, and some of them don't. The law, the government and their own families are against them. And, be warned, there is a grisly scene that details the actual unwinding process, step by step. You won't be able to put this one down.
