The Carbon Diaries 2017 (The Carbon Diaries Series #2)by Saci Lloyd
In this riveting sequel to the hit eco-thriller The Carbon Diaries 2015, Laura Brown, now a college student in London, chronicles the struggle England faces as the government tightens its grip on carbon rations. Laura is juggling two love interests, and her eco-punk band, the dirty angels, keeps landing gigs, so life is good...until a crackdown on rioting students forces her to flee the city. Then, on the bank's European tour, Laura finds herself at the center of a series of dangerous events. The angels have always sung about fighting corruption. Is it time for Laura to join the underground resistance movement and actually practice what the dirty angels preaches?
As perceptive and compulsively readable as its prequel, this book raises provocative moral questions for today's young adults.

The Carbon Diaries 2017 by Saci Lloyd is about a teenage girl and the rebellion of the people. While the idea and basics of the story were interesting, I feel that the book was not extremely well written, with multiple errors. I do understand that as a diary, it has some freedom of grammar and spelling, however the fact that there were words that I did not know exist and probably do not, irritates me. Not the words themselves, but the fact that they were written in a way that did not explain to me what they meant. I also did not understand the story, what the characters goal was meant to be, who the antagonist was. Overall, I feel that there were few parts that I truly enjoyed, and even those could have been a lot better. The emotions of the characters were unclear, and more all-over-the-place than usual, complicating and ruining the book further.
