Unwind by Neal Shusterman

Connor, Risa, and Lev are running for their lives.
The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child "unwound," whereby all of the child's organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn't technically end. Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state is not enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape—and to survive.

Another AHHHHMAAAZING find! What an odd kind of world. Creepy actually when you really think about it. Neal really gets you to feel for each of the characters. You get the story from many different points of view, but it doesn't make it confusing, it just pulls you deeper into their world & makes every character that much more human & relate-able. A great Dystopian read.
