City of Ember

Books of Ember: Volume 1
Author: Jeanne DuPrau
Guided Reading Level: U
My Recommended age: 10 and up

An underground city, a time capsule, two friends, and time is running out… The city of Ember is in trouble. Supplies are running low and the pipe works are falling apart. All of the residents know they’re in danger of the city collapsing, but no one knows what to do. Through a series of events, Lina and Doon come across an old letter and become the last hope for saving their fellow Ember residents. Together they must race against the clock in order decrypt the message and save the city.

I found this first book in the Ember series highly entertaining.  It was a fun quick read and held my attention right up to the end.  In fact, I couldn't wait to jump into the second book!  There was nothing offensive at all.
