Ship Breaker

Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi

Set in the future, the story starts on an island with the protagonist, Nailer, living in poverty and working the extremely hazardous job of scavenging scrap metal from old oil tankers. After a hurricane, when he discovers a modern luxurious yacht with a beautiful wealthy girl called Nita still alive, he is left with a difficult choice. Kill her, strip the yacht, and live as a king among his impoverished community, or let her live, and see what adventures she will lead him to. Well-written, with great character depth and full of suspense, this book will leave you wanting its sequel immediately.
