One mayor died before he could tell his successor about the box?
The box was broken into, and its contents were stolen.
The box was destroyed by a hammer.
The city was build on an Island
In the city the sky was always dark
The weather stayed the same year round in the city of Ember
Everything in the city of Ember was built of steel.
The oldest person in Ember
The Chief Builder
Students picked a job from a small cloth sack
The mayor of Ember assigned jobs to the students based on their skills
Students were allowed to pick job assignments based on their talents.
Brand new buildings
Prospering with many new supplies
Shortages and blackouts
Lina had an easier job?
Doon had a broken leg and would not be able to run all over Ember with messages.
Doon wanted to work on the generator near Pipeworks.
Doon and Lina are such good friends that Doon will trade his good job for Lina's bad job
The students of Ember find out what they will be doing for the next three years.
The mayor of Ember with his vast, heavy build was a tyrant who loved to boss the students around.
Lina took off her shoes and socks, wrapped herself around the cold metal pole, and climbed up the light pole.
Doon wanted to be near the generator, so he traded jobs with Lina.
One by one the students reached into the sack and drew out job assignments?
In the city of Ember, the sky was always dark.
Doon sat in the second row with his shoulders hunched, his eyes squeezed shut and his hands clasped together.
The mayor was a man with a gray face.
The mayor should go on a diet so that he would not get out of breath so easily.
On Assignment Da the classroom was silent.
Chet will fix the generator, and there will be no more blackouts
Messenger was a fun job because messengers are able to move freely through the city and not have to work behind a desk.
Ember is a dreary place to live with a dark sky all the time
The students were always excited on Assignment Day because they discovered what they would be doing for the next three years.
