    Junior Bender is a Los Angeles burglar with a magic touch. Since he first started breaking into houses at age fourteen, he's never once been caught. But now, after twenty-two years building an exemplary career, Junior has been blackmailed by Trey Annunziato, one of the most powerful crime bosses in LA, into acting as a private investigator on the set of Trey's porn venture, which someone keeps sabotaging.

    Heard a book review of Crashed by Nancy Pearl from the Seattle Public Library (check out her website) She really loved this book, so I checked it out and I'm so glad I did. Junior Bender's is my burglar hero! The other characters are well written as well and the story is fantastic. Peter Berkrot did a great job bringing Hallinan story to life. I can't wait for the next book in the series

    In America's Gulf Coast region, where grounded oil tankers are being broken down for parts, Nailer, a teenage boy, works the light crew, scavenging for copper wiring just to make quota - and hopefully live to see another day. But when, by luck or chance, he discovers an exquisite clipper ship beached during a recent hurricane, Nailer faces the most important decision of his life: Strip the ship for all it's worth or rescue its lone survivor, a beautiful and wealthy girl who could lead him to a better life.

    I had already read The Windup Girl by Bacigalupi, but Ship Breaker is an even better story. I never wanted to turn it off. I wish the narrator had just forgone the accents. It bothered me the whole time, but the great story managed to overcome the the so-so narrator.
