I recently read a book called "The City Of Ember".
It is about a 12 year old girl named Lina and a boy named Doon who live in Ember. Ember was once a bright, peaceful city but now the warehouses are running out of food and clothes and the lights have grown dim and black outs have started to occur, some only seconds and some long. And then Lina finds a mysterious message in her grandmothers home, but she is too late, Poppy -her younger sister- finds it first, and chews it. Lina and Doon must solve the message to save the city before it's too late.
I would not recommend this book to anyone. Although I think the plot is very interesting, the way it was written was very boring. The words were very 'thin'. Parts that could have been suspensful if written so, were not. There was no detail making it hard to visualize and get into the book.
