The Unwind Series is a series of Young Adult novels written by Neal Shusterman. The first installment, Unwind was released in 2007. A sequel, Unwholly, was released in 2012. Unwind is set to be a trilogy, with the third book, UnSouled, set for release in 2013.


Shusterman says the idea for Unwind came to him when he heard a news story about a scientist who claimed that "within our lifetime, 100% of the human body will be viable for trnasplant", reports about rioting teenagers in Britain, and reports about how strongly people feel on either side of the issue of abortion. Unwind is a novel that imagines not a technological future, but a sociological future.

Film Adaptation

In 2010, the film rights for Unwind were sold to Tasty Films and ContagionFilm. The film is in the very early stages of pre-production and casting has not yet begun. Novel-author Neal Shusterman drafted the screenplay.
