Back Blurb:

Connor and Lev are on the run after the destruction of the Graveyard, the last safe haven for AWOL Unwinds. But for the first time, they’re not just running away from something. This time, they’re running toward answers, in the form of a woman Proactive Citizenry has tried to erase from history itself. If they can find her, and learn why the shadowy figures behind unwinding are so afraid of her, they may discover the key to bringing down unwinding forever.

Cam, the rewound boy, is plotting to take down the organization that created him. Because he knows that if he can bring Proactive Citizenry to its knees, it will show Risa how he truly feels about her. And without Risa, Cam is having trouble remembering what it feels like to be human.

With the Juvenile Authority and vindictive parts pirates hunting them, the paths of Connor, Lev, Cam, and Risa will converge explosively—and everyone will be changed.

My Review:
It has been so long since a book has grabbed my attention as thoroughly as the Unwind trilogy has. I finished book 2, UnWholly, and went right into UnSouled and finished it in under 24 hours. This trilogy has so many different point of view that you expect to be confused, but Mr. Shusterman did such a fantastic job in writing these POVs that it's impossible to get confused. There were also so many things going on at one time that there is literally never a dull moment. From page 1 to page 403 you're kept on the edge of your seat biting your nails. I know this review has been very short and I apologize for that, but I can't think of anything else to say to you about this dystology other than, "START WITH BOOK ONE AND NEVER STOP!" Hats off to you, Mr. Shusterman. You are amazing!

This is the trailer for Book 2, UnWholly, because I couldn't find one for UnSouled.
