People of Sparks, The (Books of Ember) : Reviewed

Author:Jeanne Duprau
Reading Level (Conceptual):Children 8 and up
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Children 8 and up

This is a story about a city of people who escaped underground while humans basically destroyed themselves with war... In the prequel the people from the underground city of Ember emerge into what seems like an empty world of sunlight. But in this book, they find a village that attempts to adopt them. In the end there is almost another war, because some of the people are just cruel.

The book is a little bit preachy (the author tells us what is right and wrong), but i agree with her, and she understands people well.
