Pumped for Unwholly!

I had to share this. All of you know the fan that I am of Neal Shusterman. I mean the man is a genius. I can also tell you about my excitement for his sequel to Unwind (click to see my review).  Here is the summary and cover of Unwholly. Can we talk about how eerily creepy that cover is. AMAZING.

Thanks to Connor, Lev, and Risa — and their high-profile revolt at Happy Jack Harvest Camp — people can no longer turn a blind eye to unwinding. Ridding society of troublesome teens while simultaneously providing much-needed tissues for transplant might be convenient, but its morality has finally been brought into question. However, unwinding has become big business, and there are powerful political and corporate interests that want to see it not only continue, but also expand to the unwinding of prisoners and the impoverished.

Cam is a product of unwinding; made entirely out of the parts of other unwinds, he is a teen who does not technically exist. A futuristic Frankenstein, Cam struggles with a search for identity and meaning and wonders if a rewound being can have a soul. And when the actions of a sadistic bounty hunter cause Cam’s fate to become inextricably bound with the fates of Connor, Risa, and Lev, he’ll have to question humanity itself.

Rife with action and suspense, this riveting companion to the perennially popular Unwind challenges assumptions about where life begins and ends—and what it means to live

If you have no read Unwind, I HIGHLY suggest it to you. Besides, you have to read that before you can read Unwholly, which I am sure is going to be just as good.

Who is excited?
Did I hear movie?
What are your thoughts on these two books? Do tell!
