Take 3: Reasons to try "The drowned cities" by Paolo Bacigalupi

In a dark future America that has devolved into unending civil wars, orphans Mahlia and Mouse barely escape the war-torn lands of the Drowned Cities, but their fragile safety is soon threatened and Mahlia will have to risk everything if she is to save Mouse, as he once saved her. Ages 14+

 1. It's Paolo Bacigalupi! And if you haven't yet read The windup girl then I am crying real tears for you. Loudly.

2. Action packed adventures always make for great reading. (And, sometimes, even better watching as films).

3. It's the follow-up to Ship breaker and I'm sure there's some rule that says you HAVE to finish a series once you start. Right...?

4. And in case you need a fourth reason: Available as an audiobook
