"Bacigalupi's cast is ethnically and morally diverse, and the book's message never overshadows the storytelling, action-packed pacing, or intricate world-building."
"Barely a chapter into this novel, readers may feel as if they're deep inside the black hold of an oil tanker--in a good way."
From the Publisher
Editors Note In a futuristic world, teenaged Nailer scavenges copper wiring from grounded oil tankers for a living, but when he finds a beached clipper ship with a girl in the wreckage, he has to decide if he should strip the ship for its wealth or rescue the girl.
Annotation In a world where oil no longer exists and the disparity between rich and poor has reached epic proportions, Nailer works on a light crew in the Gulf Coast. Barely surviving each day's scavenging, he must contend with life-ending weather and a cruel father with shady connections. But when a wealthy girl is shipwrecked, Nailer finds himself helping her. He becomes entangled in her world, and finds himself very much in over his head. With expert world building and a fast-paced plot, this is author Paolo Bacigalupi's first novel written for young adults. He writes adult science fiction, including THE WINDUP GIRL.
