This is something that also impressed me in his Skinjacker series which is also incredible. It seems like when he writes a series, with each book he piles on more and more new characters, and somehow he manages to keep it all from spinning out of control.
That is an impressive feat, my friends. Every one of the new characters was compelling, served an important role in the story, and gave the reader something new to think about.
The idea of Cam was just freaking brilliant. I mean, a person made entirely out of Unwind parts? It's really interesting to see how Cam has to adjust to having so many different Unwind's thoughts and memories, and how even though he has the mind of several different people, he still struggles to become his own individual person.
And Miracolina Of the new characters, she was probably my favorite. Her backstory is incredible and thought out so well. Her relationship with her parents is so twisted and heart-breaking.
I loved seeing her change throughout the story. Basically she was super badass and awesome. And her relationship with Lev is so adorable. Lev shrugs. Then there were characters like Starkey and Nelson, who were just terrible people. And yet, I couldn't really bring myself to hate them just because they were such good characters.
And that's the thing I love about Neal Shusterman's characters Even the really despicable ones another good example being Mary from the Skinjacker books almost don't really feel like "villains" just because Shusterman has thought out their stories so well and makes the reader understand why they've become the way they are.
In addition, Shusterman gives us a lot more to think about in UnWholly. While of course the first book was thought-provoking, he adds a lot of elements into the sequel that give the reader more to consider.

Lev is at the camp as well, having turned himself in after becoming a "clapper", a suicide bomber who has had a specialized explosive chemical injected into their bloodstream that is detonated by clapping or other types of contact.
Roland is unwound because his blood type is in high demand. Just as Connor is about to be unwound, the other two clappers detonate their explosives at Lev's request.
Lev intends to join them, but at the last minute changes his mind, determined to pull out unwound youth from the wreckage and save Connor.
He succeeds, then surrenders to the police.
At the hospital, Connor and Risa reunite. The nurse gives Connor a fake ID previously belonging to a year-old guard killed in the explosion to save him from unwinding. Risa has been paralyzed from the waist down, and saves herself by refusing treatment, as disabled people cannot be unwound.
Lev is saved by the explosive fluid in him, which is slowly being removed from his bloodstream. Risa and Connor return to the Graveyard to run it because the Admiral is too weak, having refused to take a new heart from an Unwind. They promise to begin fighting against harvesting.
The story ends with a party at the Admiral's house, celebrating the birthday of his son, whom he and his wife unwittingly had unwound. All the people who received parts from his son attend, bringing him entirely there. The book ends with Connor becoming the new leader of the Graveyard.
Characters[ edit ] Connor Lassiter the "Akron AWOL" is a sixteen-year-old whose parents signed the unwind order because of his constant fighting, getting thrown out of several schools, and general bad behavior.
His escape and shooting of a Juvery Cop named Nelson. This event completely destroys Nelson's life, causing him to lose his job at the Juvenile Authority and become a "parts pirate" who finds AWOL Unwinds and sells them on the black market to be illegally unwound.
He devotes his life to finding Connor and selling him to be unwound. Connor becomes a legend after shooting him with the tranquilizer gun, earning him the nickname "Akron AWOL," with stories that continue to become more elaborate with each telling. Connor changes from being an uncontrolled fighter to a person who contains their rage enough to rationalize and see what's hidden in many dangerous situations.
They find an unexpected loyalty to the Admiral, the leader of a runaway unwind camp where they are staying, when they discover the bodies of The Goldens, some of the Admiral's favorite Unwinds. She became a ward of the state home when her parents "storked" her directly after she was born. Risa is a very skilled piano player, but was scheduled to be unwound to cut orphanage costs and because the orphanage felt she had already met her full potential.
During a private conference with the headmaster, she feels like "her membership in the human race was just revoked. She is also very selfless, turning herself in to save another unwind's life. During their escape she manages to get food, clothes, and to get out of many sticky situations.
She is very good at taking care of young babies and wounds. She becomes a medic in the Graveyard because of her experiences at the orphanage. Risa sees a great change in Connor when she helps him control his emotions and to think rationally about the situation instead of just fighting. Levi "Lev" Jedediah Calder is, at thirteen, the youngest of ten children.
He is described as angelic, with blond hair and blue eyes. Unlike Connor and Risa, Lev has a good relationship with his family. They are a very religious family and very loving towards each other. Unfortunately, however, as the tenth child in the family Lev is a "tithe," which means that he is slated to be unwound as a religious sacrifice.
Lev's family gives ten percent of everything—including their children—as a sacrifice to the church. At the beginning of the novel, Lev understands his role as a tithe and is willing to give himself for unwinding.
He always knew that he would be unwound, and understood that it was his life purpose. On his way to the harvest camp, however, Lev is abducted by Connor.
The events which follow cause Lev to question every aspect of his life, especially his unwinding.
As the story continues, Levi begins to feel that his parents love God more than they love him, which causes him to feel more and more hatred towards his family for wanting to tithe him.
He also starts to steal things and begins to trust others. He is also shown to be clever and honorable when he bargains a diamond bracelet for money. His honorable quality keeps him alive at the end of the story. This character helps Lev learn to scavenge for food in the food courts of malls. Not much is known about him at first, other than he's a proud Umber. The inventor of the word was "this artist dude - mixed-race himself, a little bit of this, a little bit of that".
CyFi explains that the artist painted darker skin tones with a paint named "Umber," and that "it just stuck".
