UnDivided (Unwind Dystology Book 4) Kindle Edition
Proactive Citizenry, the company that created Cam from the parts of unwound teens, has a plan: to mass produce rewound teens like Cam for military purposes. And below the surface of that horror lies another shocking level of intrigue: Proactive Citizenry has been suppressing technology that could make unwinding completely unnecessary. As Conner, Risa, and Lev uncover these startling secrets, enraged teens begin to march on Washington to demand justice and a better future.
But more trouble is brewing. Starkey’s group of storked teens is growing more powerful and militant with each new recruit. And if they have their way, they’ll burn the harvest camps to the ground and put every adult in them before a firing squad—which could destroy any chance America has for a peaceful future.
"Shusterman's finale might be the best one in the series since the first...Everything culminates in an action-packed, heart-wrenching conclusion guaranteed to chill readers to the bone." (Kirkus Reviews)
"The battle for hearts and minds--and teenage body parts--winds to a dramatic close in the finale to Shusterman's darkly satiric UnWind Dystology...true page-turner like the previous books." (Booklist)
"Real recent news articles (with working links) about the present-day scientific and policy realities presaging Shusterman’s imagined future punctuate the narrative...Ambitious, insightful, and devastating—a fitting conclusion to a provocative series." (Horn Book Magazine)
"[A] lot of thought-provoking topics for discussion. The story is intriguing: a wonderful end to a unique and noteworthy series." (School Library Journal)
*"The popularity of this series is warranted: it is smart, it is dark, it is riveting, and the characters are drawn with respect. Furthermore, Shusterman’s series transcends the dystopian fan base. Libraries without books one through three should get them. Those who already have them, start the waiting list now." (VOYA, starred review)

Crazy, right? So basically, your kid gets on your nerves, you sign an order and they are taken away and unwound to people who need organs.
The books were easy reads. The hero of the books is a kid named Connor who escapes his unwinding. It follows his journey - and all the people he meets along the way - and.....well - I don't want to give it away, now do I?
If you like Dystopian Future, this would be a good choice

The company that created Cam, Proactive Citizenry, has a master plan to mass-produce hundreds of rewound teens like him for military purposes. Meanwhile, they have been suppressing technology that could make unwinding completely unneccessary! As Connor, Risa and Lev begin to uncover these shocking secrets, more trouble is brewing. Starkey's group of storks is growing more and more powerful with each and every recruit. If they have it their way, they will burn down every single harvest camp and kill every adult complicit in their operation, which could destroy any chance that America has for a peaceful future.
The characters in this book are all so well written. I was so glad that Connor and Risa got to spend the majority of this book together. Lev continued to surprise me in a variety of different ways - after hating him in the first book, he's really become one of my favourite characters. Argent was a character I really did not like for the majority of this book and the last, but he manages to totally redeem himself in the end. There was never a point where I liked Starkey - he irritated me so much throughout the entire book. It annoyed me how he couldn't see the damage he and his storks were causing. Cam was another character I didn't really like in other books, but, like Lev, he became one of my favourite characters. I'm so glad he got his happy ending. The villains were also brilliantly written - there's something that's so creepy about Roberta that you can't quite put your finger on. Nelson was a great villain, and it was clear that he'd stop at nothing to get Connor unwound. My favourite villain was definitely Divan - as much as I hated what he was doing, you really got a sense of the compassion he felt for the teens he was unwinding.
The setting of this series is one of my favourites of all time. You are pulled in straight from the first page and it's interesting to see how unwinding has become accepted by society when it is so abhorrent. I liked how in parts we got a brief glimpse into the lives of parents who had unwound their children. Some show regret, some not so much. Neal Shusterman tells us so much about this world that by the end you are completely satisfied with the series. There are a few loose ends that I did think about when I finished the book, but we get to see these all play out in the collection of shorter stories, Unbound. I'd definitely recommend reading it if you enjoyed this series and want to read more.
All in all, a fantastic conclusion to a fantastic series!
This last leg, pun sort of intended, in the Unwind dystology (who knew such a thing existed) packs quite a punch. Right in the face. With Roland's shark infested arm. It ploughs ahead at full speed, with lots of twists and turns (and kind of a predictable ending) as we finally get to see what becomes of Lev, Risa, Connor and Cam (and of course Grace, Argent and Starkey) on the quest to end unwinding, figure out how to make that ancient organ printer and work and most importantly, somehow put an end to unwinding (and maybe rewinding too!) for good. All whilst avoiding the chop themselves. High stakes. This book really leaves you breathless.
I loved the humour within our characters, even in the face of so much adversity and obvious danger. "Nice Socks" is an insult I intend to use. And I also really like how far they've each come, even Cam and his 99 personalities has changed a great deal from version one of Cam (who wasn't so bad anyway!). It brings that age old message of friendship and togetherness right to the forefront and even though that message has been overcooked now, it had that kind of magic about it that made me feel all the warm fuzzies. It wasn't just the wine.
I think Sonia and the organ printer were undersold in this final story. What a missed opportunity. She is truly my favourite, bitter old character of this entire series and her history and ideas were sort of shoved to the cellar with the AWOLs instead of giving her credit for being the amazing person that she is. Equally I struggled with Lev a little in this book. His character does some pretty wild things, and I get why, but the end result of that wasn't well fleshed out so lost the surprise factor. Equally some of the inevitable unwindings within this book weren't as shocking as the Roland scene. Nothing can touch that I think.
Nevertheless, a cracking end to a brilliant series, ended on just the right note at just the right time so as not to overdo it!
An epic dystology, set in harsh times, powerful writing, such strong leading characters.
One negative I had with this last book was where characters started coupling up.
Thank you Neal for making me cry on multiple occasions including Lev's heartbreaking scene, horrifying me on Roland's last scene, grinning at Hayden's antics, fisting in the air for Bam's courageousness, stunning me with Miracolina's stubborn self!
Excuse me while I now read any future and past books by Neal Shusterman.
