Yet To Read: The Carbon Diaries 2015

Yet To Read: is about a book i haven't read before but defiantly want to. The Plot description is from
I found this book a few days ago and it looked interesting, personally i don't go out looking for diaries to read but this one looked good.

Title: The Carbon Diaries 2015
Author: Saci Lloyd
Pages: 330
Plot: Laura Brown, a 16-year-old Londoner and punk rocker, documents a year in the very near future, 2015, in diary form. She refers to recent massive storms brought on by climate change that have ravaged the planet and led Britain to be the first country to try “carbon rationing.” Each person is allotted a prohibitively small measure of carbon points to be used each month, essentially obsoleting such luxuries as air travel or even heating one’s home. Laura navigates the increasingly punishing circumstances with a perfectly intoned half-bitter, half-astonished teenager’s voice, complete with strains of near-future slang, and punctuates her diary with newspaper clippings and other taped-in bits of cultural detritus. As she weathers staggering uncertainty, kill-me-now family crises, and a timelessly confusing dating scene, she finds a release valve in music and her mates.
