Title: The City of Ember
Author: Jeanne DuPrau
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: The city of Ember is the “only” city in the world with light, but the cities lights are dying and that means the city will too. Supplies are running out and the lights flicker frequently. Lina and Doone are friends who try to save the people of Ember. They go on many adventures and discover many secrets. One of them is that the mayor is stealing all the supplies for himself and he gives people some of the supplies to work for him. Lina and Doone tell the guards but they are wanted for telling “rumors” (the guards get free supplies from the mayor for not telling the secret). Lina and Doone escape the city of Ember with an instructions page that Lina found in her closet. They discover a city full of “lights” (which is acutally the sun but they don’t know that) and now they have to find a way to get the rest of the people of Ember out of the city before time runs out!
