Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  In America's Gulf Coast region, where grounded oil tankers are being broken down for parts, Nailer, a teenage boy, works the light crew, scavenging for copper wiring just to make quota--and hopefully live to see another day. But when, by luck or chance, he discovers an exquisite clipper ship beached during a recent hurricane, Nailer faces the most important decision of his life: Strip the ship for all it's worth or rescue its lone survivor, a beautiful and wealthy girl who could lead him to a better life. . . . In this powerful novel, award-winning author Paolo Bacigalupi delivers a thrilling, fast-paced adventure set in a vivid and raw, uncertain future.

This is an incredible book. It has everything: knife and sword fights, high seas piracy, genetically-altered-dog-men, loyalty, traitors, friendship and non-stop action. You come to love all the good-guys and hate all the bad-guys, and you just can't put the book down once you get started.
