Publisher's Summary

The People of Sparks picks up where The City of Ember leaves off. Lina and Doon have emerged from the underground city to the exciting new world above, and it isn't long before they are followed by the other inhabitants of Ember. The Emberites soon come across a town where they are welcomed, fed, and given places to sleep. But the town's resources are limited and it isn't long before resentment begins to grow between the two groups. When anonymous acts of vandalism push them toward violence, it's up to Lina and Doon to discover who's behind the vandalism and why, before it's too late.

Wonderful story

Story picks up where City of Ember ends. DePrau portrays a very realistic future world. In this novel, she shows how well she understands human nature -- the good and the bad -- the fears and prejudices, as well as the the hopes and aspirations. A good, clean and wholesome tale for all ages. Loaded with adventure and suspense. The conclusion of the story is especially wonderful.

Are You Over 12?

A very well-written piece but, I found myself saying,"Duh," often. I dont't reccomend this piece if your over 12 because of it's childish air. But if your looking for something fun and easy to follow go ahead, buy.
