Synopsis: A gritty, high-stakes adventure set in a futuristic world where oil is scarce, but loyalty is scarcer. In America's Gulf Coast region, grounded oil tankers are being broken down for parts by crews of young people. 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 by 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, Paolo Bacigalupi delivers a thrilling, fast-paced adventure set in a vivid and raw, uncertain future.

Book Description Subterranean Press, Burton, MI, 2011. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. As new in fine dust jacket. Number 167 of 300 signed limited copies. In Shipbreaker his teenage protagonist Nailer has the filthy and dangerous job of scavenging grounded oil tankers for their copper wire. The author, multiple award winner for The Windup Girl, received the Michael L Printz Award for this riveting novel and has now been nominated for both the National Book Award for Young Adults and for the Nebula's Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy. On a devastated Gulf Coast, seventeen-year-old Nailer ekes out a bleak existence scavenging copper wire from downed oil tankers. His horizons extend no further than the dangerous community of Bright Sands Beach, where his abusive father is the most brutal threat of all. But when a clipper ship washes ashore with a live┐and rich┐girl on board, Nailer has a decision to make. Will he profit from his find or gamble on helping her survive? With Ship Breaker, Paolo Bacigalupi offers a disturbing yet ultimately hopeful look into the near future. Bacigalupi┐s acclaimed collection, Pump Six and Other Stories, and his multiple-award-winning debut novel, The Windup Girl, established him as one of science fiction┐s boldest new writers. Praised by critics and readers alike, now Ship Breaker has made him one of the young adult field┐s brightest stars. The novel was a finalist for the Andre Norton Award and the National Book Award in the Young People┐s Literature category, and claimed the Michael L. Printz Award, the American Library Association┐s top honor for young adult literature. This special limited edition includes an extensive new interview with the author. Signed by Author(s).
