Tons of great ideas and activities for ANY novel study. Great for grades 4, 5, and 6. Many ideas for the book City of Ember as well.
Something about the amber lights I saw in my head for the lighting throughout this book made me remember the intensity of playing around after dark in the far corners of shopping parking lots. I don't care for the following books, but this first book in the series was amazing.
The City of Ember Series by Jeanne DuPrau. Age: 13+. Score: The series itself gets a 100, but individually, I'd say that Ember and People of Sparks both get a 90, Prophet of Yonwood gets a 60, and Diamond of Darkhold gets a 100.
