Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi

Bacigalupi, Paolo Ship Breaker, 323 pgs. Little, Brown and Company, 2010. Language - R (203 swears, 0 "f"), Sexual Content - G; Violence - G; Nailer is starting to get too big to be a scavenger and really needs to get it big or is going to be poor and homeless his whole life. After a huge storm hits, he and his friend finally get their big break, but does Nailer's conscience ruin it for them? I think this book was all right. The story line was entertaining and the characters memorable, the thing that ruined it for me was the swearing problem. It's harder to enjoy a book that swears on almost every page. MS, HS - OPTIONAL. Reviewer: CCH
