4. The Prophet of Yonwood

By: Jeanne DuPrau

Level: YA

Series: Book of Ember #3


Althea Tower has had a vision!  There is a crisis between the nations of the world and Althea Tower has seen the horrible devastation this may cause.  Her vision has left her incapacitated with Mrs. Brenda Beeson looking out for her welfare, and interpreting her vision for the whole town.  Nickie Townsend has come to Yonwood, North Carolina with three goals in mind.  #1 – to keep her great-grandfather’s house from being sold, #2 – to fall in love, and #3 – to do something helpful for the world.  In Yonwood, Nickie tries to save the world according to Mrs. Beeson, which brings more questions than answers.  She finds two boys (that she cannot see herself never leaving like in the romance novels she finds) who she befriends.  Meanwhile, Nickie’s aunt is selling the house around her and Nickie is having a hard time not getting it sold.  All the elements come together in a fantastic conclusion.  The book leads right up to The City of Ember, the first book in the series.
