Review of Undivided

Undivided is the last book of the unwind series by Neal Shusterman. The unwind series is a terrific dystopia that puts into practice the idea that if parents chose to they can harvest the kids for organs when they turn 13 until they are 17. The author’s greatest strength is his ability to create so many emotions through his writing with such minor characters. One of my favorite parts of the series is when a teacher finds three kids who were being forcible unwound and decides that it is her duty as a teacher to help them and set an example for her students. This book focus on several characters each important in their own way. From Cam a boy made completely of unwound parts who brings down the main organization responsible for unwinding to Grace a girl of below average intelligence who ends up donating the world first organ printer to a medical lab so there is another alternative to unwinding. The book ends with several people being reunited with the kids they unwound after reading letters their parents wrote to them. I urge anyone and everyone to read this and experience the emotional thrill ride for yourself. This book uses different article throughout it as well to make a point on how closely our society resembles the dystopia.
