Almost 4 stars, so I rounded up.Dystopian, climate change and oil shortages have destroyed the society we know now. You either have money/come from a rich family, or you are poor, scrambling for work and food, selling organs to harvesters, selling yourself.Nailer (around 16, he doesn't really know how old he is) is a ship breaker, running with the light-crew, scavenging copper wire from rusting tankers. He lives with his violent, drug-addicted father, but finds family with crewmate Pima and her mother. The future is uncertain, everyone looking for a "lucky strike". Then Nailer almost dies after being betrayed by a crewmate and he starts thinking more about how he wants to live. Add to that "city killer" hurricanes, a shipwreck, a rich girl, "half-men" genetically enhanced soldiers, and corporate espionage and you have a very exciting YA adventure that is also very readable by adults.Will be looking for the next book.
