Saci Lloyd The Carbon Diaries
Yeah. Diary structure. Good idea: charting the first year of carbon rationing as the fractures in a family appear, repair, widen, heal. Not aimed at my age group. Cross generational characters but seen through the eyes of a teenager. It took time but the characters grew on me. And there's nought like catastrophe for people pulling together. Read it in an episodic way as life-stuff was intruding: indulged in others lives falling apart. Gives a sense of how individuals might play things: find out who they really are in the midst of the political attempts to restore normality or introduce a new normal. Did Saci Lloyd pull it off? I think so.
