Unwind by Neal Shusterman

Beehive Awards will be announced soon, and I've finished reading them all...now I just have to write the reviews!

Neal Shusterman has spun a very interesting futuristic tale that gives me the same jitters as Scott Westerfeld's Uglies. Essentially, this is a socio-political commentary, but let's face it, it makes a heck of a story too!

You'll experience near-constant intense anxiety as you follow the story of a few teenagers who are running away from a world that wants to harvest all their body parts for donation to society's needy. Excitement - check. Originiality - mostly check. Violence - double check. Captivating story - check, check, and check.

I consider this book highly worthy of any award nomination, as it is appealing to both genders, hard to put down, and fairly original. Not a bad choice, Beehive nominators!
