Review YA Book "The City Of Ember' by, Jeanne DuPrau

I just finished "The City of Ember' by, Jeanne DuPrau, it was a great book that I couldn't put down!This is about a city built by "the builders" a river runs all the lights and their storerooms are supposed to last forever,well needless to say forever is here,the generator that works their electricity is breaking down the storerooms are almost empty and all the pipeworks are leaking.The adult citizens seem to be unaware of the changes going on their city and a bad Mayor is not helping his citizens at all.Of course it is the young people that realize things are becoming bad there are blackouts lasting longer each time.So Lina & Doon decide to do some investigating on their own,after Lina finds an unusual box with even more unusual "instructions" to the Egress.So the two of them set out to find a way out of the city .This book was very well written and I whole-heartedly recommend it to young and old alike.
There is a movie of this book coming out next month I have watched a few trailers and have already seen some inconsistencies with the book.I will review the movie and give a comparison to the book when it comes out.
I give this book 5 Stars.
