Présentation de l'éditeur
It's January 1st, 2015, and the UK is the first nation to introduce carbon dioxide rationing, in a drastic bid to combat climate change. As her family spirals out of control, Laura Brown chronicles the first year of rationing with scathing abandon. Will her mother become one with her inner wolf? Will her sister give up her weekends in Ibiza? Does her father love the pig more than her? Can her band the dirty angels make it big? And will Ravi Datta ever notice her?
In these dark days, Laura deals with the issues that really matter: love, floods and pigs.
The Carbon Diaries 2015 is one girl's drastic bid to stay sane in a world unravelling at the seams.--Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché.

People have to choose what is really important.
As tough as the carbon rationing is, the extreme weather patterns are worse. Unbearable heat, droughts, hurricanes, and floods put normal life on hold for everyone.
In addition to adapting to this new life, Laura also has to deal with typical teenage issues. Her family seems to be falling apart, her band is attempting to stay together, and she is trying to get the boy next door to notice her.
With the U.K. falling down around her, does Laura have the luxury of being a typical teenager?
Saci Lloyd has written an addicting eco-thriller. Following Laura through the toughest year of her life is fascinating. Readers will be anxious to read the follow-up, THE CARBON DIARIES, 2017.

The voice of the main character, Laura Brown, is true to form for a modern teen living in a major metropolitan city. As I read this book, I laughed out loud, but at other times I felt tremendous sadness and empathy for the situations that the characters encountered. I hope that those situations never ever happen on Earth.
As a public school science teacher in the U.S., my only reservation is some of the language used in the book. I couldn't use this novel in my school, but I'm certainly going to buy and donate this book to the local library!
You won't be able to put this book down for very long!
