Undivided (Unwind Dystology #4) by Neal Shusterman, Book Review
Five Out of Five Stars!!! Check it Out Here


Teens control the fate of America in the fourth and final book in the New York Times bestselling Unwind dystology by Neal Shusterman.

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.


"When the need is great enough, and the music loud enough, we can stomp conscience into the ground."

This series was disturbing, books about human beings being unwound into parts and integrated into others is a disturbing premise. It's telling that I couldn't look away from the violence, bothered by each news article clipping, included between chapters. The articles made us look more closely at how disturbing and dark the world around us is, and how similar it's practices are to what we find here. It's so tempting to place blame on others rather then face the part we all play.
"We must always be careful of the actions we take, for there are always unintended consequences."
Lev, Risa, Grace, Connor, and Camus led us through the end of a troubled time. But all of the obstacles they faced were not enough for them to turn back. The advertisements in the book made the world described feel more real, considering the constant advertising that bombards our lives. The plot itself while fantastic, managed to describe how much anger, drive and perseverance work together until revolution is not a choice, but the choice to take. The characters have to face their personal issues, while driving forward to fix the country's too. This book describes, vengeance, evil, community, friendship, heartbreak, love, hate, indifference and starting over well enough that I felt refreshed when it was done.

Mr. Shusterman does what all authors try to do which is to make a story become a learning experience. Part of this books writing involves your emotions, your bias,  and your perspective. This series more than anything has reminded me of how quickly complacency, fear and blaming can lead to horrible consequences. You won't regret reading this series, and wont be disappointment by the ending. Instead you'll be happy that you along with the main characters have made it through the journey.

P.S. The unrest described in most of the series,reminds me of why the City of Ferguson has called a state of emergency. Will we witness the consequences of another group of people who are tired of watching people they love die, without justice?
