UnWholly by Neal Shusterman
After the events in Unwind the law has been amended so that teens are no longer subject to unwinding at age 17 rather than 18. Rather than making things better there is now a demand for black market body parts since there are fewer unwinds. Connor has become the leader of the airplane graveyard and Risa works there as a medic. Lev is under constant supervision by the government because of his clapper activities but even that supervision can't stop a terrorist attack on him. Meanwhile, a covert organization has made Cam, a boy assembled entirely from unwound parts. I had huge expectations for this book since Unwind is one of my favorite books of all time. I would blame my probably unrealistically high expectations for my disappointment with this sequel except that all of my friends have had similar reactions. Sad face.
