The City of Ember
Doon is smart and likes knowing how things work. His job is to work in the Pipeworks. He has to fix pipes that break. He helps Lina in looking for the way out of Ember.
Lina's job is a messenger. She runs around delivering messages to people. She has a little sister named Poppy. Doon, Poppy, and Lina all worked together to find a way out of Ember.
Poppy is Lina's little sister. She chewed up The Instructions that Lina and her Grandmother were looking for.
I do not know what to do. The mayor and all his guards are looking for Doon and I. We try to tell people that the mayor is eating all the city's food but no one believes us. We need some advice on how to handle this situation. Can you please let us know? Thank you.
Lina and Doon
Dear Lina and Doon,
Thank you for the question. I think that you should just try to focus on getting out. That way if you do run out of food you will be able to try and find food in the new place. If you stay and do finally have everyone agree with you and you do get the food, the food will run out eventually. That is what I think you should do.
According to the text Doon, Lina and Poppy had to find their way out of Ember. I think that is scary to go away from where you lived your whole life. It would be scary because you don't know who to trust and who not to trust. They don't know where the map will lead them to. It takes courage to follow a map with out a grown-up. That is what I think.
