This month we'll be talking about the exciting novel Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi. It's set in a very near future on the Gulf Coast, and is the story of how "teenaged Nailer scavenges copper wiring from grounded oil tankers for a living. When he finds a beached clipper ship with a girl in the wreckage, he has to decide if he should strip the ship for its wealth or rescue the girl."
