Ship Breaker, by Paolo Bacigalupi

A coworker was looking for Sci Fi recommendations for her young daughter as part of a high school reading requirment.  I suggested a few books I'd heard of, and in the course of her searching she came up with this book, Ship Breaker, that she thought I might like.  I don't read much youth literature, but I did really enjoy Ender's Game & Z for Zachariah, so I wanted to give this one a try.
It's a fun book, and I could see having really liked it as a teen.  Not the greatest book for an adult, I found a lot of pacing off and the characters lacking.  And the beat-you-over-the-head global warming message was a too much for me.  None-the-less a decent, action packed book that I overall enjoyed.
