I can't run and be free if i'm in the pipeworks with the generator! I would like to be a messenger!
How can I save the city and see the generator if i'm not Pipeworks labourer! I can't see the generator if i'm a messenger!
The greenhouse potatoes
My potatoes are getting infected by a disease. Here is a bean seed for you, water it and keep it healthy.
On Assignment day Doon and Lina are assigned jobs at age 12. Lina is assigned Pipeworks labourer, Doon is assigned messenger. They are both not happy about there jobs. so they decide to trade even though they are not aloud. I chose to include this scene because if Lina and Doon didn't trade jobs than Doon couldn't fix the generator and save the city, and Lina can't run and be free and send messages to people. The story wouldn't be interesting.
The door in the roped off tunnel
Doon what do you think will be behind that door?
In this chapter Lina takes a message to Clary at the greenhouse. There are infected potatoes at the greenhouse. Before Lina leaves Clary gives Lina a bean seed. Sadje comes out of the unknown regions. Sadje wants to find a way out of Ember. This scene shows that Ember is running out of food. The potatoes and a really small place of cans of food is where they store the food. Sadje made Lina feel stressed when he came out of the unknown regions.
This scene Doon goes to work and finds a roped off tunnel. Lina and Doon go explore the tunnel, it's dark in the tunnel and there is a locked door. When they leave they see a person walking. Lina thinks she recognizes the person how he walks. This event seems important because the door might be connected to the city. Lina and Doon are curious about the door and they want to see what is behind it. They are hoping to see if it is a way out of Ember.
I think that at the end of the novel, Lina and Doon will find the rest of the instructions and the instructions will be part of the pipeworks, the generator, and a way out of Ember. Also Lina, Doon, and Poppy will escape Ember and see blue sky!
