The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau
My Opinion: At face value this is a very standard teen book. If you let yourself go a little deeper, though, it becomes much more. Sol isn't trying to change the world, just to please her grandfather. She makes rash decisions with little regard for how they will affect the rest of her life (though she does acknowledge from the beginning that her actions are likely to land her in jail). Sol is stubborn almost to the point of becoming unlikable. Fama takes us on a remarkable journey to an amazing conclusion. I can't wait to give this book to patrons.
Other Information: Plus One releases April 8th.
