Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi | 25 YA Books For Adults Who Don't Read YA
To Read: Cree says: "After Bacigalupi's first science fiction novel, THE WIND UP GIRL, won the Hugo & the Nebula in 2010, he followed it with this young adult novel. Both books share themes of environmental destruction, climate change brought on, in part, by human nature, and evil corporate greed. SHIP BREAKER is a coming-of-age/action/travel/adventure story about a young boy born into the very low rungs of a dark and desperate future world."
Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi, 2010. 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.

"Dave the Potter: Artist, Poet, Slave" by Laban Hill and illustrated by Bryan Collier. An excellent children's book about a man named "Dave the Potter" or "David Drake" that ... lived in Edgefield, South Carolina. The things he was able to accomplish during his enslavement are amazing.
Dave the Potter: Artist, Poet, Slave, by Laban Carrick Hill illustrated by Bryan Collier use for: biography, Black History Month, intro pottery
Dave the Potter: Artist, Poet, Slave, by Laban Carrick Hill, is a poetic nonfiction picture book about an enslaved worker known only as Dave. “To us,” says the narrator on the first page, “it is just dirt,/ the ground we walk on. . . . . But to Dave/ it was clay,/ the plain and basic stuff/ upon which he learned to/ form a life/ as a slave nearly/ two hundred years ago.”
Enslaved potter Dave produced thousands of beautiful pieces of pottery over the course of his life, a true accomplishment given that the institution of slavery denied most African Americans access to skilled trades. Dave’s pottery is even more extraordinary given that a number of pieces were inscribed with poems he wrote himself at a time when southern states prohibited the education of slaves.
