Obvious Annotations

Unwind by Neal Shusterman

“There are places you can go,” Ariana tells him, “and a guy as smart as you has a decent chance of surviving to eighteen.”
Connor isn’t so sure, but looking into Ariana’s eyes makes his doubts go away, if only for a moment. Her eyes are sweet violet with streaks of gray. She’s such a slave to fashion – always getting the newest pigment injection the second it’s in style. Connor was never into that. He’s always kept his eyes the colour they came in. Brown. He never even got tattoos, like so many kids get these days when they’re little. The only colour on his skin is the tan it takes during the summer, but now, in November, that tan has long faded. He tries not to think about the fact that he’ll never see the summer again. At least not as Connor Lassiter. He still can’t believe that his life is being stolen from him at sixteen.
