The City of Ember

by Jeanne DuPrau

 

 

The city is dying. Power failures are common. There is no light in the sky. Outside the city in what is called the Unknown Regions only darkness can be found.

Lina Mayfleet finds a set of instructions she believes will help her find a way out of the city. Unfortunately, her baby sister finds the instructions first and chews holes in them. Lina and her friend, Doon Harrow, race against time and a corrupt mayor to piece together the clues in these instructions to save the people from their dying city. Read this novel by Jeanne DuPrau to see if Lina and Doon are successful in their quest.
