Jeanne DuPrau has written several books of nonfiction for children and adults. She has been a teacher, an editor, and a technical writer. The City of Ember is her first novel for middle graders. She is currently working on the sequel at her home in Menlo Park, California, where she keeps a big garden and a small dog.
The city of Ember was built as a last refuge for the human race. Two hundred years later, the great lamps that light the city are beginning to flicker. When Lina finds part of an ancient message, she’s sure it holds a secret that will save the city. She and her friend Doon must decipher the message before the lights go out on Ember forever! This stunning debut novel offers refreshingly clear writing and fascinating, original characters.

  • Wonderful for all ages!

    A friend recommended this book to me last spring, so I read it and fell in love with it! I am currently reading it to my third grade class, and they are mesmerized by it. I have had such an incredible response from the kiddos that I am buying them all a copy. If you like a good adventure, this is the book for you! Very easy to read!
