DuPrau, Jeanne. The city of Ember

DuPrau, Jeanne. The city of Ember. Random House, 2003 [0-375-82273-9]
We are taken to the city of Ember and fantastical city which is totally controlled and had been planned out by the "builders." Unfortunately, this lovely city is now on the downfall.. the storerooms are getting empty so there are few supplies and there are many black outs. The people of the city are taught there is no world beyond the city of Ember. Does that mean there is no help? Can Lina and Doon find a way to save their city? This 270 page book is a fantasy with an interesting ending. It might be a good follow up for the "Among the hidden" books.
