A Nebula and Hugo Award-nominated author delivers a fast-paced dystopian adventure that is sure to appeal to fans of "Little Brother" and "The Hunger Games."
From the Publisher:
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.

Praise

"Bacigalupi's cast is ethnically and morally diverse, and the book's message never overshadows the storytelling, action-packed pacing, or intricate world-building." 04/19/2010

"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." 07/18/2010
