Unwind

Connor, Risa and Lev are all due to be unwound. Each of them has their own story. A series of unfortunate, but somewhat fortunate, events brings the three of them together as they go AWOL to save their lives. They end up in a place called the Graveyard where they will hopefully survive until they are safe from unwinding at the age of 18. But as things are it doesn’t seem like they will make it as Ronald, who is Connor’s ultimate enemy, is always there to completely ruin things.

At 16 years old Connor was planned to be unwound because his parents saw him as a troublemaker. Although he usually acts before he thinks, Connor improves on that and is actually very smart when he can control his temper. At 15 years old Risa is supposed to be unwound to cut orphanage costs. Risa is the brains of the group and always thinks things through. At 13 years old Lev has been raised his whole life to be unwound for his family’s religion. More of a wildcard character, Lev’s motives are unclear throughout the story.

I gave a rating of five stars because I absolutely loved reading this book. It's a story unlike anything I had read before and the way it's written is very interesting. The story is compelling and keeps your interest until they very end.
