His novel, Unwind, has become part of the literary canon in many school districts across the country – and has won more than thirty domestic and international awards. Shusterman is currently co-writing the pilot episode of Netflix’s adaption of his “timely, speculative thought experiment in perspective, privilege, and identity” (KIRKUS), Game Changer, while his harrowing tale of survival, Dry, is in development at Paramount Pictures. His most recent thriller, Roxy, which was co-written with his son Jarrod, “portrays the opioid crisis in a way older YA readers can feel and understand” (Booklist).
