sparkscoverEmber is a city underground that was built long ago by the builders. The chief builder and the assistant builder decided that the people were going to stay in Ember for at least two hundred and fifty years until a metal box opened and inside would be instructions on how to get out of Ember.

Lina Mayfleet is a girl who finds the instructions and and goes to her friend Doon Harrow to show him and they set of with Poppy, Lina’s baby sister to the river where the first instruction begins….

This book by Jeanne DuPrau is a book full of ideas and adventure.
The people of Ember think there is no light in the dark, dark world except for Ember.

The people of Ember have just escaped from their home underground and have entered a city where there is barely any room for them and where hard labor is done. They have no idea about this of course, and they think that The People Of Sparks are trying to get rid of them by writing horrid things in the plaza or poisoning them with poison ivy.

Then one day a war begins.

This adventurous tale by Jean DuPrau makes people think about war and how you should try to do something good even if someone has done something bad to you.

OK Readers — you’ve got series, adventure, mystery, and two brave kids! Irresistible!
