I would rate this book 4.5 out of 5 stars! The City of Ember is about an underground city in which the people lived in a town of amazing lights for a long time. However, the city is now falling apart. The power goes out frequently, shrouding the city in darkness. The supplies and food for the people of the city are running out, leaving the people of Ember with limited options… Lina Mayfleet, a twelve-year-old girl living in Ember dreams to be a messenger on Assignment Day to explore new places in the city. Will Lina find a way out of Ember before the supplies run out and the city falls into complete darkness? Lina is a curious and headstrong character and it is exciting to see her interact with other characters. The imagery feels like you are living in the darkness of the City of Ember. I highly recommend this book for 8 year-olds and up! It is filled with action and cliffhangers that will keep you reading!
