Books of Ember Series

By: Jeanne DuPrau
Lina and Doon succeeded in taking the people of Ember above ground, but nobody realizes how different life will be.  After walking for several days with few supplies or food, the people of Ember come to the town of Sparks.  While both groups of people want to work together to help each other survive, they find it very difficult.  Where should the people of Ember live?  How do the two groups share food and resources?  These three books tell the story from both before Ember was founded and into the future beyond their time with the people of Sparks. 

Mrs. Senechal says:
After reading the first book, I just had to find out what was going to happen!  I love that all four books give you different pieces of the story.  Sometimes you are reading about the past, sometimes it's current, and you get to hear the story from many points of view.  These books also made me think.  It is tough to get along with one another, but these characters remind me of the good that comes from cooperation.  Thanks to my sister, Katie, for recommending this series!
