As oil reserves run out and oil prices skyrocket, resulting in shortages of everything, three teens in a small town in New York will have to figure out how to survive. I had such high hopes for this book and I think the premise is really interesting, but stock characters and unrealistic dialog made this one a miss. I think that kids who read it may learn some things about how oil is used that they might not have realized before, so it might have classroom applications. Aside from the cover (which I find intriguing, but I don't know how teens would find it), I don't see a whole lot of teen appeal unless they have a particular interest in fossil fuels.
