Read full description of the books:
A young friend of mine loaned me these books and encouraged me to read them. I did, and quickly so. City of Ember was a compelling read that dragged me speedily into an underground civilization that is dying and whose citizens are in need of rescue and escape and whose ultimate triumph comes at the hands of two adolescents, Lina and Doon. People of Sparks continues the story of the people of Ember and their quest for a better life where food, commodities, and resources are not scarce. Prophet of Yonwood takes the reader back in time to before the founding of the underground city and some of the many events which led to its creation and in habitation. A fourth book in the series entitled The Diamond of Darkhold has recently been released. A movie based on the City of Ember is to be released 10/10/08.
These books are geared for a middle school audience, and do that job justly. However, the books are full of interesting cultural, social, and modern commentary that cannot help to attract adults to come and devour their pages.

Read information about the authorJeanne DuPrau spends several hours of every day at her computer, thinking up sentences. She has this quote taped to her wall: "A writer is someone for whom writing is harder than it is for other people" (Thomas Mann).
This gives her courage, because she finds writing very hard. So many words to choose from! So many different things that could happen in a story at any moment! Writing is one tough decision after another.
But it's also the most satisfying thing she knows how to do. So she keeps doing it. So far, she has written four novels, six books of non-fiction, and quite a few essays and stories.
Jeanne DuPrau doesn't write every minute of every day. She also putters around in her garden. She lives in California, where it's easy to grow everything from apples to zinnias.
Jeanne DuPrau doesn't have children, but she has two nephews, a niece, and a dog. The dog lives with her. His name is Ethan. Jeanne and Ethan get along well, though their interests are different. Ethan is not very fond of reading, for example, and Jeanne doesn't much like chasing squirrels. But they agree on walks, naps, and trips in the car to surprise destinations. Ethan also likes to help in the garden.
