Description :  La seconda guerra Civile, che passò alla storia come la Guerra Morale, fu un conflitto lungo e sanguinoso, combattuto negli Stati Uniti su un'unica questione: l'accettazione o meno dell'aborto. Per mettervi fine, venne approvata una serie di emendamenti nota come Legge sulla Vita, che accontentò sia lo schieramento abortista, sia quello antiabortista. La Legge stabilisce che la vita umana è intoccabile dal momento del concepimento fino a quando un bambino compie tredici anni. Fra i tredici e i diciotto, però, i genitori possono decidere di abortire in modo retroattivo a condizione che, tecnicamente, la vita dell'adolescente non finisca. A questo scopo, tutti gli organi del ragazzo verranno impiantati in persone in attesa di trapianto, le quali manterranno una memoria del donatore. Il processo tramite cui il ragazzo viene allo stesso tempo eliminato e tenuto vivo si chiama Divisione. È una pratica largamente accettata dalla società. Connor ha sedici anni, Lev tredici e Risa quindici. Tutti e tre hanno uno stesso destino: essere Divisi. Tutti e tre vogliono sfuggire a questo destino, e sono pronti a combattere.

Description :  Dans <i>Les Fragmentés</i>, Neal Shusterman décrivait un monde où l’on pouvait « fragmenter » tout adolescent âgé de treize à dix-huit ans, en réutilisant tous ses organes pour le laisser vivre dans un « état divisé ». La plupart des fragmentés sont des adolescents difficiles, comme Connor, des orphelins, comme Risa, mais certains – Lev, par exemple – sont également volontaires, considérant la fragmentation comme un acte religieux.&#xa0;<i>Les Déconnectés</i> suit l’itinéraire de plusieurs adolescents hors-la-loi (appelés « déserteurs ») qui tentent d’échapper à la fragmentation. Et la tâche n’est pas facile depuis qu’une pénurie d’organes a vu apparaître un nouveau filon : le marché noir. Les déserteurs doivent non seulement échapper aux Frags, la brigade des mineurs, mais aussi déjouer les pièges des Bracs, chasseurs de fragmentés sans foi ni loi.&#xa0;Après avoir survécu à l’attaque d’un camp de collecte, Connor, Risa et Lev continuent de résister à la fragmentation. Depuis un cimetière d’avions de l’Arizona, Connor accueille les fragmentés en fuite, aidé de Risa, qui a perdu l’usage de ses jambes en refusant la colonne vertébrale d’un fragmenté. Mais combien de temps peuvent-ils tenir face aux Frags ? La société peut-elle encore tourner le dos à la fragmentation alors qu’on vient de créer le premier « formaté » à partir des organes de 99 fragmentés ? Notre vie vaut-elle davantage que la somme de toutes nos parties ?<br /><br /><i>Traduit de l’anglais (États-Unis) par Raphaëlle Vigneron</i>
