The cover of it is really creepy. Its a hooded figure with cracks all over their face.

I'm getting myself so excited talking about it.  :)

Random, but do you think that the meaning behind Unwind was anti-abortion?

no. The author said he didn't take a position, but wanted to show the complexities. In the end, Conor says
"We have  a right to our lives. We have a right to say what happens to our bodies. And we have a right to live in a world where both those things are possible."

I think we can agree that Unwinding is much worse than abortion.

I've been counting down the days. :3 I won't get the book until Sept. 29th, though. That's when I get to meet Neal Shusterman. :D

Why, why does everyone live in places that allow them to meet authors?  Why must I be trapped virtually in the middle of nowhere?   >:(

No authors ever come directly to my city (except Rick Riordan), but luckily I only live an hour from the capital, which has authors and book festivals all the time. :3
