The People of Sparks picks up where The City of Ember leaves off. Lina and Doon have emerged from the underground city to the exciting new world above, and it isn''t long before they are followed by the other inhabitants of Ember. The Emberites soon come across a town where they are welcomed, fed, and given places to sleep. But the town''s resources are limited and it isn''t long before resentment begins to grow between the two groups. When anonymous acts of vandalism push them toward violence, it''s up to Lina and Doon to discover who''s behind the vandalism and why, before it''s too late.

"From the Hardcover edition."

From the Publisher:
Having escaped the underground city of Ember to the Unknown Regions, Lina, Doon, and the others seek help from the village people of Sparks, in the sequel to The City of Ember. Reprint.
Annotation:
This sequel to THE CITY OF EMBER follows the further adventures of Lina Mayfleet and Doon Harrow as they and other residents of Ember take up residence in the town of Sparks. Although they initially welcome the people of Ember, the residents of Sparks soon come to resent how the Emberites are taking more of their share of the town's meager resources. As tension builds between the Emberites and the people of Sparks, it is up to Lina and Doon to save the day.
