Join Some of The Girls for our monthly Tuesday night book club discussion. The February pick is "Unwind".
Connor, Risa, and Lev are running for their lives.
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. Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state is not enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape and to survive.
If you'd like to come out earlier, our January book is The Map of Time. The March book is Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail.
