Read full description of the books Podzieleni:Druga Wojna Domowa toczyła się o prawa reprodukcyjne. Po latach krwawych walk między Obrońcami Życia a Zwolennikami Wolnego Wyboru uchwalono mrożący krew w żyłach kompromis: Życie ludzkie jest nienaruszalne od momentu poczęcia, aż do wieku lat trzynastu. Jednakże pomiędzy trzynastym a osiemnastym rokiem życia, rodzice mogą zdecydować się na „podzielenie” swojego dziecka, wskutek czego, wszystkie jego organy zostają przeszczepione różnym biorcom. Można się zatem takiego dziecka pozbyć, jednak formalnie rzecz biorąc jego życie nie dobiega końca.
Connor sprawia swoim rodzicom zbyt wiele kłopotów, Risa, wychowanka domu dziecka, nie jest wystarczająco utalentowana, aby opłacało się ją utrzymać przy życiu. Levi natomiast jest dziesięciorodnym – dzieckiem poczętym i wychowanym przez religijną rodzinę w celu złożenia w ofierze w procesie podzielenia.
Connor, Risa i Levi - trójka nastolatków oddanych do podzielenia - uciekają z transportu i próbują uniknąć okrutnego losu. Połączeni przez los, wspólnie udają się w desperacką podróż napędzaną przez nieustanną walką o życie. Jeśli uda im się przetrwać do osiemnastych urodzin – będą bezpieczni. Jednak w świecie, w którym system pragnie dopaść każdy kawałek ich ciała, pełnoletność wydaje się być bardzo odległa.
Read information about the authorAward-winning author Neal Shusterman grew up in Brooklyn, New York, where he began writing at an early age. After spending his junior and senior years of high school at the American School of Mexico City, Neal went on to UC Irvine, where he made his mark on the UCI swim team, and wrote a successful humor column. Within a year of graduating, he had his first book deal, and was hired to write a movie script.
In the years since, Neal has made his mark as a successful novelist, screenwriter, and television writer. As a full-time writer, he claims to be his own hardest task-master, always at work creating new stories to tell. His books have received many awards from organizations such as the International Reading Association, and the American Library Association, as well as garnering a myriad of state and local awards across the country. Neal's talents range from film directing (two short films he directed won him the coveted CINE Golden Eagle Awards) to writing music and stage plays – including book and lyrical contributions to “American Twistory,” which is currently playing in Boston. He has even tried his hand at creating Games, having developed three successful "How to Host a Mystery" game for teens, as well as seven "How to Host a Murder" games.
As a screen and TV writer, Neal has written for the "Goosebumps" and “Animorphs” TV series, and wrote the Disney Channel Original Movie “Pixel Perfect”. Currently Neal is adapting his novel Everlost as a feature film for Universal Studios.
Wherever Neal goes, he quickly earns a reputation as a storyteller and dynamic speaker. Much of his fiction is traceable back to stories he tells to large audiences of children and teenagers -- such as his novel The Eyes of Kid Midas. As a speaker, Neal is in constant demand at schools and conferences. Degrees in both psychology and drama give Neal a unique approach to writing. Neal's novels always deal with topics that appeal to adults as well as teens, weaving true-to-life characters into sensitive and riveting issues, and binding it all together with a unique and entertaining sense of humor.
Of Everlost, School Library Journal wrote: “Shusterman has reimagined what happens after death and questions power and the meaning of charity. While all this is going on, he has also managed to write a rip-roaring adventure…”
Of What Daddy Did, Voice of Youth Advocates wrote; "This is a compelling, spell-binding story... A stunning novel, impossible to put down once begun.
Of The Schwa Was Here, School Library Journal wrote: “Shusterman's characters–reminiscent of those crafted by E. L. Konigsburg and Jerry Spinelli–are infused with the kind of controlled, precocious improbability that magically vivifies the finest children's classics.
Of Scorpion Shards, Publisher's Weekly wrote: "Shusterman takes an outlandish comic-book concept, and, through the sheer audacity and breadth of his imagination makes it stunningly believable. A spellbinder."
And of The Eyes of Kid Midas, The Midwest Book Review wrote "This wins our vote as one of the best young-adult titles of the year" and was called "Inspired and hypnotically readable" by School Library Journal.
Neal Shusterman lives in Southern California with his children Brendan, Jarrod, Joelle, and Erin, who are a constant source of inspiration!
