sci-fi about space ships miniaturized/hidden in medallion

[ Edited ]

hello all,

looking for a book i read in the 80's. here is my vague memory of story.  A sci-fi about the looming end of the world.  Young people  were mysteriously playing video games all day, which turned out to be pilot- training for evading meteors in space.  there was class warfare between the haves and have-nots, who lived like homeless on the margins of society.  the 1 percenters were planning their escape from earth, a doomed planet.  everyone was searching for the escape ships. the great surprise (idea used later in "men in black")  was that they were miniaturized into a pendant around a girl"s? neck.  would love to know title of this book. Thanks!
