Book#36 of the 50 Book Challenge...

From Goodreads.com:

The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child "unwound," whereby all of the child's organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn't technically end. Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state is not enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape and to survive.

My Take:
4 out of 5 stars. A very thought provoking look at what could happen if the our fight over the right to life were taking to next level, war and the result there after. Scary stuff.
