Ship Breaker

Ship Breaker By: Paolo Bacigalupi

Nailer is a ship breaker, he lives to salvage items off of broken ships.  His father is terrifying and only cares for drugs, and is violent. On one salvage mission Nailer and Pima find something they are not used to finding, a swank girl that is not dead yet.  Nailer decides that they will make a blood bond with her and help her stay alive until her family finds her.  This gets more difficult and Nailer has to think that maybe be Lucky Girl can help him find what he is looking for too.

I thought that this was a good book.  It dealt with a lot of deep topics, but the most important thing that I think it was about was loyalty.  The characters in this book were loyal to each other and that is not something that a lot of people have.  I loved how even though it was not the best thing for the character at times, Nailer remained loyal to the people that he made a blood bond to.  Great teen read.

I borrowed this from the public library
