Times Christmas Roundup - Amanda Craig 11+

Amanda Craig's Christmas roundup for older readers...

Her roundup for the younger audience was printed last week.

My Book of the Year for 14+ is Neil Shusterman's Unwind (Simon & Schuster, £6.99/£6.64), set in a future in which teenagers who annoy their parents are put down for "unwinding", ie, total body parts donation - a topical subject, thrillingly dramatised - and three rebels go on the run together. Grumpy, paranoid teens will have their worst fears confirmed.
