Annotation:
With her diary of the first year of carbon rationing in the United Kingdom, 17-year-old Londoner Laura Brown combines a beguiling mixture of environmental issues, family dramas, and personal angst that could be any teen's experience. It's 2015 and Britain is taking a hard line on reducing carbon use by creating a strict rationing system. Laura's family slowly falls apart, but her crushes, musical passion, and outlook bring sanity to an otherwise crazy existence.

Praise

"It works so well because of all the normal craziness of life that has nothing to do with the environmental disaster. The family crisis, the colorful supportive neighbors, the crush on the cute boy next door, and the triumphs of Laura's band lend the story verisimilitude that will give it appeal far beyond the usual thriller for doom-and-gloom junkies." 05/01/2009

"Gripping, perceptive, and impassioned, this provocative debut is speculative fiction at its finest." 05/01/2009
