Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi
A GRITTY, HIGH-STAKES ADVENTURE SET IN A FUTURISTIC WORLD WHERE OIL IS SCARCE, BUT LOYALTY IS SCARCER...

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. . . .
