"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 and, in the same stroke, 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 expand, allowing the unwinding of prisoners and the impoverished. Cam is a teen who does not exist. He is made entirely out of the parts of other unwinds. Cam, a 21st century Frankenstein, struggles with a search for identity and meaning, as well as the concept of his own soul, if indeed a rewound being can have one. When a sadistic bounty hunter who takes "trophies" from the unwinds he captures starts to pursue Connor, Risa and Lev, Cam finds his fate inextricably bound with theirs"--… (mere)

It took me about eight months to get back to this series, but I am glad that I did. The hero from book 1, Connor, is now back running the Graveyard, where 800 kids "unwinds" are hiding from the Juvies. Connor is bothered because he does not know why they seem protected. There is a double agent and we also meet power-hungry Starkey, a stork, who wants to lead. Lev is a cult hero now, but is perplexed by tithe, Miracolina. And Risa becomes a pawn as she sacrifices herself for the good of the Graveyard. Finally, we are introduced to a modern day Frankenstein, Cam Comprix, who is a composite created from many Unwinds, but who remains incomplete without earned love and respect. This book was action packed, but missed some of the gaiting moral issues from the first book, ( )

A bit hooked on this plot, so am looking forward to another sequel, but annoyed that I'm hooked, too, since the writing and some of the dialogue is just pretty good. Not many surprises in the book, but enjoyable. ( )

Sooo freaking good! Just as incredible as the first one. The climax was amazing. The characters and all of their complex relationships were wonderful. The whole idea of Cam was just twisted and mind-blowing. Trace’s death was visceral and poignant. The entire world that Schusterman has created here is chilling and oh so thrilling to read about. I can’t wait to dig into the next book in the series. ( )

Cam bothers me. His existence is weird in a society that has made a holy act out of dying in order to give others your body parts via the tithes. So it seems like there would be massive protests around his very existence. Also wouldn't his existence violate laws? His character is just odd. Why the piecing together of ethnicities? It sounds like a gross literal approximation of colorblind racism.
I liked the storyline with corruption everywhere: amongst liberated Unwinds, within government, within corporations that act like charities. The background on the war is a good way to flesh out and expand the world building. ( )
