Unwind By Neal Shusterman

“In a perfect world mothers would all want their babies, and strangers would open up their homes to the unloved. In a perfect world everything would be either black or white, right or wrong, and everyone would know the difference. But this isn’t a perfect world. The problem is people who think it is.” – 75
.
“One thing you’ve learned when you’ve lived as long as I have—people aren’t all good, and people aren’t all bad. We move in and out of darkness and light all of our lives. Right now, I’m pleased to be in the light.” – 111
.
“Which would be worse—to have tens of thousands of babies that no one wanted or to silently make them go away before they were even born?” – 115   5*
.
“Amazing that the bullies and victims can now work together to bring misery to others.” – 257
(referring to the government) 
.
“Who can say what goes through the mind of a clapper in the moments before carrying out that evil deed? No doubt whatever those thoughts are, they are lies. However, like all the dangerous deceptions, the lies that clappers tell themselves wear seductive disguises…” – 304/5
(clapper is the term for suicide bomber in the book)
.
--I would suggest this book to anyone wanting to expand their mind. It is satire of the future based on our society now. It is a very enjoyable fiction read, but will definitely make you think and influence your opinions.--
