  1. Hi Jia,

    An excellent book report about the ‘City of Ember’. You wrote a really good summary about the story. I really enjoyed reading this book to the class last year. Have you read the fourth book in the series ‘The Diamaond of Darkhold’? This is another exciting adventure for Doon and Lina.
