DuPrau, J. (2003). The city of ember. New York: Random House.

This story takes place in the city of Ember. This is a dire time for ember, a city in total darkness. Supplies are running low, along with the light bulbs. Regularly now, the cities lights flicker, and everyone holds their breath hoping that the lights will stay on. Twelve-year-old Doon Harrow and Lina Mayfleet, join together to try to decipher a torn up letter, in the hopes of saving the city. As their search grows, they find corrupt politicians and citizens desperate for survival.

Highly Recommended *****
