It's 2015, and the UK is the first nation to introduce carbon dioxide rations, in a drastic bid to cut greenhouse gas emissions. As her family spirals rapidly out of control, Laura Brown chronicles the first year of rationing with scathing abandon.

Will her mother become one with her inner wolf? Does her father love the pig more than her? Can her band, the Dirty Angels, make it big? And most importantly, will Ravi Datta ever love her?

A compelling apocalyptic story for older children from best-selling author Saci Lloyd. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Missy Cahill | 2/18/2014

    " Interesting concept and a good book for teenagers about a definite possibility. Nevertheless it is a book for teenagers, and i dont think it would cross over to the adult market, just a little bit too young. Great idea though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scarlett Sims | 2/18/2014

    " This book was better than I thought it would be. It wasn't overly preachy about global warming until the end and I thought the story was good. I also liked the diary format. At the end of the book there was not only a glossary disguised as part of the story (the book is British and uses some British slang) but a list of places teens could go to get more information about global warming. I would definitely give this book to an eco-conscious high schooler or middle schooler. "

    " Yuck! I hate this book. DO NOT READ. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelsey | 1/21/2014

    " The students have really been into this type of book lately, but for me this one was a lot less effective than something like Life as We Knew It. I had a hard time connecting to Laura's voice and it wasn't until the very end that I felt any kind of tension. Not sure I'll pick up the next one... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 1/20/2014

    " 3 and a 1/2 stars seem to be the caliber of books I have read these days! Still a good book and gives you another sobering look into what the world might be like soon if we don't shape up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 1/15/2014

    " Yes, indeed, the future looks bleak. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Barbara Bjelke-Wahlberg | 1/4/2014

    " I could not really get involved in this book. It became a struggle. The story just did not grab my attention. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Mcallister | 12/25/2013

    " A bit like How We Live Now but the British version. And of course the problem is man-created, not natural cause. While the character from How We Live is from a supportive well-bonded family, the girl from Carbon Diaries is in a more challenged family, making the perspective a trite more bitter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rushna | 12/1/2013

    " This book is an interesting take on a possibility of the near future... although its not a book who feel offended by bad language and stuff like that "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendall | 9/20/2013

    " Futuristic book mixed with references of pop culture today; set in Britain. OK read, but better novels like this include Life as We Knew It and Last Book in the Universe... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenn Estepp | 9/14/2012

    " clever premise, but i'm disappointed by the execution. the fact that i didn't give a flying flip about any of the characters was a contributing factor. also, i think the american cover is awful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 7/23/2012

    " I enjoyed this dystopian book and it really did make me feel more aware of the many ways I consume carbon. It seemed very realistic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terry | 7/1/2012

    " Mediocre novel describing apocalyptic conditions in the UK as global warming's impacts are felt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen | 6/30/2012

    " Good look at... a future where carbon is rationed and everything changes for a teen. Recommended if you liked the extreme weather and life changing consequences of LIFE AS WE KNEW IT. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loren | 6/13/2012

    " this book is very reminiscent of Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer, but with an ecological twist. it's a fun, quick read and i really liked the little glossary at the end full of english words, ecological terms and green websites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/16/2012

    " I think this would technically be considered distopian, but it's set in the very near future so I'm not sure. That very near future-ness made it really cool, though. Everything is really familiar, but one little change in society makes everything kinda creepy. I'm definitely reading the sequel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cate Hagarty | 10/21/2011

    " This book made me think about the impact of my everyday activities as much as any book from the environmental movement. Dubbed an Eco-thriller, I have to recommend this incredible story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daisy Battersby | 8/27/2011

    " Georgia Nicholson in a dystopian state. A good read, not amazing, great at a push, but everyone will be able to identify with at least one character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holli | 5/14/2011

    " This book is very eye-opening. You don't know just how much you rely on electricity and things like fresh water. This book has changed the way I think about them now. I know I won't be able to really live without them but I will definitely be more conscious of just how much co2 I'm emitting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 4/11/2011

    " What a scary look into a possible future for all of us if we don't change our ways. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Briana | 3/28/2011

    " Awesome book....the author's ability to tie in current events was exceptional "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christopher | 3/21/2011

    " Interesting idea. Charming but a little dull. Would make quirky and funny low budget film. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Athina | 3/10/2011

    " Cooles buch über die zukunft...auch wenn alles zum schlimmsten gemacht wurde macht es überlegen und ist vielleicht sogar noch möglich!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 3/10/2011

    " Harsh and crude language still manage to get the message of global warming across. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carole | 3/2/2011

    " For young adult audience, a great read as a cautionary future tale that makes you think about how we need to change our consumption of energy. Europe is way ahead of the US. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 2/14/2011

    " Didn't love this one, thought the last 50 pages kept me up later than planned. An interesting cautionary tale (occasionally too preachy) about the real dangers of global warming, and the "on the ground" impact of rationing for a (dysfunctionally) normal London family. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hayley | 2/8/2011

    " Yuck! I hate this book. DO NOT READ. "
