Unsouled by Neal Shusterman

This is the third book in the Unwind series.  It is a dystopia society young adult read, but different from the other dystopia books.  It is very good and thought provoking. AND, it is safe for kids to read.  So many times I get irritated that they target a young adult audience and then put inappropriate material in the book.  I am reading this one and sharing with one of my 5th graders who has read everything worth reading in my library already! :)

Summary from goodreads.com:
The story that began with Unwind continues.

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.

Neal Shusterman continues the adventure that VOYA called “poignant, compelling, and ultimately terrifying.”
