Her work has a deftness and authenticity it is difficult not to admire and celebrate. She also deals with matters that need attention and debate which makes this novel and its predecessor a must for every secondary school library ( School Librarian 2010-07-01)
Lloyd captures the voice perfectly -- edgy, witty, clever, heartfelt ...She creates a dynamic cocktail that grabs up her readers and takes them, wild-eyed, along for the ride ( Books For Keeps 2010-05-01)
The shaprness of Laura's observations and her essential good humour ... enable a bridge to be built successfully between the weighty and the apparently trivial ( Irish Times 2010-03-27)

Praise for Carbon Diaries 2015:
'Everyone who cares about the future of the planet should read this book!'
It's over a year since her last diary and Laura Brown is now in her first year of university in London, a city still struggling to pull itself together in the new rationing era. Laura's right in the heart of it; her band, the dirty angels, are gigging all over town until a police crackdown on rioting students forces them out of the city. After a brief exile on her parents' farm, the angels set off in a battered VW bus on a tour of Europe with the fabulous Tiny Chainsaws in the Distance.
The tour soon unravels, however, in an increasingly dramatic sequence of events that include drought in Europe and Africa, a tidal-wave of desperate immigrants, a water war in the Middle East and a city-wide face off with the army in London. Not to mention infidelity, betrayal, friendship, love and massive courage.
How long can Laura distance herself from the struggle? And more importantly, how can she keep her style and hope alive in a world on the edge of madness?
