Ship Breaker

by Paolo Bacigalupi
£6.99   paperback  Little, Brown Book Group (2011)

Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi Nailer's time is running out. He's getting too big for his work stripping copper wire from old oil tankers and once he's off the crew he's on his own, stuck in a shack on the beach with no food, no money and no way of earning his keep.
 
He has one last chance. The thing all crew members dream about, a lucky strike, has hit in the shape of a clipper ship beached during the last hurricane. If he can hold off the rest of the scavengers long enough to get the oil out, he might just have a future.
 
But oil's not the only thing on the ship. And what Nailer finds is going to change his life forever.
