The only light in the city of Ember comes from light bulbs, which are beginning to be scarce.  Not only this, but the city’s generator is failing and food rations are diminishing.  Two brave children, Lina and Doon, think they have found the solution to save the citizens of Ember, but will anyone listen to them?

This story is great for anyone interested in science fiction or post-apocalyptic books.
