“Carbon card arrived today. It’s got these little blocks on one side going from green to red and as you use up your year’s ration they fade away till you’re down to the last red and then you’re all alone, sobbing in the dark…”
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. Writing in her diary, 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.
Shortlisted for the Costa Book Award, this hilarious and touching book describes one girl’s drastic bid to stay sane in a world unravelling at the seams.
“It’s edgy, it’s appealing and it’s contemporary and it makes for utterly compelling and frightening reading.” Lovereadingforkids.co.uk
