Paolo Bacigalupi is an American Sci-Fi writer and one of his books is called Ship Breaker.

The brief explanation of the novel:

“Ship Breaker is a 2010 young adult novel by Paolo Bacigalupi set in a post-apocalyptic future. Unlike other novels in the genre, human civilization is in decline due to ecological reasons. The polar ice caps have melted and New Orleans has been buried underwater. On the Gulf Coast nearby, humanity has reverted to survival mode and a small economy has grown from the scavenging of washed up oil tankers for bits of copper and other valuables.

Nailer is a fifteen-year-old boy who works on the light crew. His mother died when he was a young boy and now lives with his alcoholic and drug addicted father, Richard Lopez. After a storm, Nailer rescues Nita, the stranded daughter of a wealthy merchant, and helps her to get back home. Unfortunately, this infuriates several parties, including Nailer’s father, the local power brokers, and Nita’s father’s enemies, including Nita’s uncle Pyce.”
