If you’ve finished The Hunger Games and you are “hungry” (so sorry) for more books set in a dystopian future, then how about trying Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi. It’s a story about a young man called “Nailer” who makes a living tearing apart rusty, abandoned ships. It’s a tough and dangerous job made even more dangerous by the oil fumes, dirt, dust and the company Nailer keeps. Complicating his life is the fact that his father has crashed into the dark world of gangs and drugs. Nailer’s life is grim, but there are a few bright spots. His friend and boss, Pima represents a safe haven. Her family protects Nailer from his father. But no one can protect them from a “city killer” a typhon storm that sweeps through their coastal village.
