Some plot features:

o Published about 4 or 5 years ago
o I seem to recall that the author is a chemistry teacher, and I think the author is a woman
o Teenage girl protagonist
o The girl is part of a politically powerful family
o Partially set where she's attending high school, on a space station in Earth orbit
o The Earth is hot, due to climate change
o There's a political party that features science denial (specifically, denial of space beyond the Earth and moon)
o There's a fad amongst the students where they have long shoe laces, untied (not important to the plot, but may trigger a memory)
