Two teens must learn the "art of killing" in this Printz Honor-winning book , the first in a chilling new series from Neal Shusterman, author of the Ne w York Times bestselling Unwind dystology. A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquer ed all those things, and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life-and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep th e size of the population under control. Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe-a role that neither wa nts. These teens must master the "art" of taking life, knowing that the con sequence of failure could mean losing their own. Scythe is the first novel of a thrilling new series by National Book Award- winning author Neal Shusterman in which Citra and Rowan learn that a perfec t world comes only with a heavy price. Editorial Reviews "Shusterman is no stranger to pushing boundaries. Scythe owes an obvious de bt to Unwind (2007) and its sequels, and this succeeds as a sort of shadow companion to Patrick Ness' C haos Walking trilogy: instead of exploring the ways in which men are monsters, this deals in what happens to men when there are no monsters. When our reach does not exceed our grasp, when comfort is more ea sily obtained than struggle, when our essential humanity doesn't burn out but becomes slowly irrelevant, what becomes of us? Readers will find many things in these pages. Answers to such unsettling qu estions will not be among them." - Booklist, STARRED REVIEW - Maggie Reagan Shusterman...writes prose with the sort of spring in its step that says: "Stand back. I know what I'm doing"...Scy.
