The Boy at the End of the World - Greg Van Eekhout The story of Fisher, a boy whose "Ark" has been destroyed causing him to become born without the rest of his community. The world has evolved while Fisher was sleeping and one thousand years have passed. Lots of things have changed, including the machines that kept him alive in the Ark. Something has attacked his Ark and killed all the other humans and creatures that were in stasis. Fisher manages to escape with a custodian robot who he names Click. Click has been programmed to do everything in his power to aid in the success of the new humans. Failure equals death, and Fisher knows enough to know he does not want to "fail".

This is more a middle-grade book than YA, and I think it's a great introduction for kid who leans toward sci-fi. I really enjoyed it!
