“UnDivided (Unwind #4)” by Neal Shusterman
Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Science Fiction, Dystopia
Summary from Goodreads:
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 Connor, 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.
Everything built up and was ready to explode. I couldn’t believe how far Shusterman was willing to go. I should have known better. After all, he did give us the POV of a kid being unwound in the first book. There were some seriously stomach dropping moments in here. I loved that he was willing to go that far though. I was really scared because anything was possible.
I was really pleased with how the characters developed. Everything has felt like a natural building process. There were some really tough choices to be made and I was so proud of what these kids accomplished. Yes, Connor, Risa, and Lev did some really amazing things. I was impressed with how Shusterman let other people shine as well. Grace messed up but she really managed to step up the plate. Cam fought hard even if he wasn’t totally sure what he was fighting for. Even Argent managed to get back on the right track.
Everything came together beautifully. I really got shivers when the pieces started coming together. When everything came out in the open, people were horrified. I hated that it took this long for them to be outraged at what was going on. In the end, it was really nice to see how people started fighting for change.
The bottom line? Stellar ending for a fantastic series.
