The City of Ember

I think that this book would be fine for ages ten plus.




This book is an action story with some mystery mixed in there too.  The main character are Lena and Doon.  Lena and Doon, and everyone they know live in an underground city called Ember.  The kids soon begin to realize that Ember is in trouble.  They are running out of food, and the electricity is starting to fail.  Lena finds some clues of how to get out of Ember, but doesn’t even know if there is a world to go to above Ember.  Doon decides that they need to try, because if they don’t they are going die down in Ember, but how can two kids lead an entire city to safety?



four out of five stars.

I really liked this book and both of the characters. I didn’t give it five stars because I feel like there could have been a little more added to the story, but it was still very good.

There is practically nothing wrong with this book, and kids under ten could probably read it.  The only issue with this book, would simply be making sure that your kids can understand what is going on in the story.
