Waiting on Wednesday: UnWholly (Unwind #2) by Neal Shusterman

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

So now that I finally reviewed Unwind (seriously, how do I miss these things?) I can properly feature its sequel UnWholly. Neal Shusterman's next masterful work in the trilogy is set for an August 28th debut & I am in absolute agony to read what happens next to our fearsome trio.

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 simltaneously 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.

After reading that little snippet I am even more eager to read it. Connor, Lev & Risa are mesmerizing characters with amazing character. I'll be glued to my seat in anticipation of how Cam will fit in with these rebellious unwindlings (no that's not really a word from the series, I made it up). How about y'all? Are you excited to see this finally coming to life?

What are you waiting on this week?
