Jeanne DuPrau is an American author of fiction. Born in 1944, she is well known to readers for her work on the popular series, the Book of Ember. DuPrau resides in Menlo Park, California, and she drives a hybrid car that can run on electricity and gasoline. She has no children but lots of hobbies when she isn’t practicing or spending time writing.

DuPrau admits that she spends several hours a day at the computer thinking up sentences and takes great efforts to write, getting courage from a quotation by Thomas Mann because she can find writing very difficult. It’s one tough word choice decision after another, but also one of the most satisfying things that DuPrau knows how to do. It gives her great joy to keep doing it.

In addition to full fictional novels, she has composed several nonfiction books as well as essays and stories. She enjoys spending time in her garden and resides in California where you can grow everything from flowers to apple trees. She also enjoys spending time with her nephews, niece, and her favorite dog named Ethan. He will help her in the garden by digging, chasing squirrels, and they like to go on trips, walks, and take naps together.

Her first published novel was released in 1981 and is titled Golden God. It was followed by two more standalone novels, titled The Earth House and Car Trouble. She also wrote several nonfiction books that focused on singular topics, like adoption and cloning. She would move on to a series that debuted in 2003 and caught the audience’s imagination with its vivid imagery and creative flair.

The series was the Book of Ember, and it instantly started selling. The series is set in a world where humans have been placed into a survival scenario and went underground long ago. But now that world is falling apart. Critically acclaimed by readers and critics alike, the series has four books in total in it. The debut novel was turned into a feature-length film that was released in theaters on October 10, 2008.

It was rated PG and starred Saoirse Ronan, Harry Treadaway, Toby Jones, and Bill Murray and was distributed by 20th Century Fox. The plot of the movie involves a lost box that is supposed to open after 200 years. It does open, but no one notices. Decades later, the city is falling apart and it is up to two children to save it.

The City of Ember is the first book in the Book of Ember series. This book takes place in the city of Ember. This was a city that was created with everything inside it for survival that humans could ever need hundreds of years in the past. Their idea and their plan worked, but only for a limited amount of time. By the time we enter the scene as the reader, things are starting to fall apart.

By now, the storerooms that housed all of the food are running low and are almost out of supplies entirely. The crops have been taken over by disease and are keeling and reeling from blight. If they don’t do something quick, there aren’t going to be any replacement crops to put in the supply rooms or cook, and then what will the people of Ember do?

Without any food, they’ll starve. That’s a huge problem with no answer in sight. Worse still, the lights are beginning to fail, flickering and on the verge of going out for good at any minute. The city of Ember could go into darkness at any moment, literally and figuratively.

It looks like things are not going well. Two children named Lina and Doon might be able to turn things around for everyone when they accidentally stumble upon a relic. They have found fragments of a parchment that is fairly ancient and just might be authentic. The two kids start to wonder if there is a world outside of Ember– maybe even one that they could live in if the lights go out here.

It’s up to Doon and Lina to try and decode the words written on this old parchment from a long time ago and in the process hopefully be able to lead the way to a new future. But more than that, they’ll have to get the people around them to listen to them if they ever have a chance at doing that. Creative and engaging, pick up this novel from Jeanne DuPaul to see what happens.

The People of Sparks is the second book in the Ember series by Jeanne DuPrau. This sequel takes readers back to the city of Ember, housed far underground. The people of Ember have lived there a long time and have come from the people who lived there before.

But when Doon and Lina find a way out of the city, the entire population is confronted with truths that they would never have imagined in their wildest dreams. They find a world around them that is green, with light emanating from the sky on its own. There is color here like you would not believe, and life in abundance.

In this new world, the people of Ember are entranced by its vividness and its stimulatory capacities. The air smells incredible, and there are fluffy white things floating up above their heads. The grounds everywhere is covered with lush colored plants. As it turns out, the people of Ember are not the only ones who inhabit this place.

There is also a small village named Sparks. Begrudgingly the people who live there agree that they will aid the people of Ember. However, they have never experienced sharing their territory with another group of people. Differences are bound to crop up, and the small tensions begin to escalate.

Now it’s up to the same two that led the people out of Ember into the light to try and find a way to keep the two groups calm and avoid a conflict that would hurt everyone. Can they do it, or is too late to stop something that is already set into motion? If anyone can do it, it is Doon and Lina. Pick up Jeanne DuPrau’s acclaimed sequel in the Ember series to find out!
