The City of Ember
This world is lit by electric lights that snap off at 9 p.m exactly. Pencils are scarce, and only the elderly remember canned fruit. Where is this place where Lina lives? And what secret lies inside those ripped up scraps of paper that her Grandmother thinks is so important? Will Lina figure it all out in time?

The Christmas Doll
Morning Glories and old fashioned dolls with crinolin layers will never look the same after reading this heart-warming tale of a sister's love and devotion in turn-of-the-century England. .
