The City of Ember

By: Jeanne DuPrau

Imagine that life on earth was in great danger.  A small group of people go underground with supplies to last several hundred years.  They plan to leave instructions on how to return home once it is safe - but those instructions are lost.  This is what has happened where Lina and Doon live.  Their home, Ember, is running out of supplies.  Neither one knows that they need to look for the lost instructions, but they both start to find important clues and some awful secrets.

Mrs. Senechal says:
This book has a gloomy setting since the people are underground - and have been for so many years.  That made me hope that the characters would be successful in finding their way to the surface!  Lina and Doon are faced with some tough decisions.  You won't know the results in this book, though - it's just the start of their adventures in this series!  I'm ready for book #2!
