What book has been called:

‘Richly described, this is an excellent YA, and more than compelling enough to please older readers’ SFX

'Ethnically and morally diverse, [but] the book's message never overshadows the storytelling, action-packed pacing, or intricate world-building' Publisher's Weekly

(no bonus points for looking at the title. . .or the picture)

YES, it's Ship Breaker the National Book Award finalist, Michael L. Printz award winning book from bestselling author Paolo Bacigalupi. The reviews above give you just a flavour of what is so brilliant – but also so FUN – about this book.

P.S. Check out this great video of Paolo talking about the book here.
