Bacigalupi's YA Story Satisfies

Windup Girl By Palo Bacigalup was so good
I had to read his YA entry Ship Breaker
I was not disappointed
I was rewarded, gloriously rewarded
Bacigalupi really gets Dystopia
His not too distant futures are gritty places
The divide between the haves and have nots
Well, It is enormous
Impossible to scale
Ship Breaker's are low on the totem poll
Salvaging the ships littering the California coast
Nailer is a standup young guy trying to survive
Rescuing a wealthy young woman
May well be his undoing
She is but a pawn in her families' finance game
Nailer's sure to be short, brutal life
May be much shorter and much more brutal

The bottom tiers of Bacigalupi's futures
Would insure an understanding of the Blues
Son House, The Original Delta Blues
