Все о книге The City of Ember

THE CITY OF EMBER is the debut novel from an exciting new American writer, Jeanne DuPrau. Having been a teacher, an editor and a technical writer, Jeanne DuPrau now writes full-time. She lives in California.

Many hundreds of years ago, the city of Ember was created by the Builders to contain everything needed for human survival. It worked - but now the storerooms are almost out of food, crops are blighted, corruption is spreading through the city and worst of all - the lights are failing. Soon Ember could be engulfed by darkness-But when two children, Lina and Doon, discover fragments of an ancient parchment, they begin to wonder if there could be a way out of Ember. Can they decipher the words from long ago and find a new future for everyone? Will the people of Ember listen to them?
