The Carbon Diaries 2015 by Saci Lloyd
Published by Hodder Children’s Books, 2008.

It’s 2015 and the UK is the first nation to try to cut greenhouse gas by reducing the use of carbon dioxide. Ration cards are issued to all homes and Laura Brown tells how the new development causes her family to spiral rapidly out of control.

Laura’s mother struggles to become one with her inner wolf!
Does her father love the pig more than Laura herself?
Will Laura’s band the Dirty Angels ever hit the headlines and most importantly of all will Ravi Datta ever love her?

Presented as Laura’s diary and likened to the Adrian Mole books of Sue Townsend The Carbon Diaries 2015 has lots to offer the reluctant teenage reader. It was one of the shortlisted Children’s Books for the Costa Book Awards 2008.
