  1. This chapter is about meeting. They are talking about “what kind of important information” like that. I think Lina and Doon and town people, talking in the meeting. But they want more information and more and more plan. And I think they are mayor is very smart and good leader. Because mayor was made meting for city. So, I think mayor is think about the city. And meeting I think is important because one person one person’s opinion is helping to city so, we need to meeting but not too much. When was only important…and they are meeting was nothing in the happened.

  2. The gathering at the Harkensquare didn't really solve any of Embers problems. The mayor wasn't speaking loud and clear and people were shouting for him to speak up. Their wasn't any cooperation. There wasn't really anything important going on in the meeting. I think the mayor called for the meeting because the black outs were scaring everyone and I also think he wanted people to think that help was coming, however I believe he's just making him hear what they want to hear. In the end Lina found the box that has important information and could maybe lead them out of Ember or give them the information they need to fix the problems they are encountering now.

  3. The crowd was furious that the mayor was saying things that weren’t even happening. He kept slurring in his speech, which was really hard for the people to understand what he said. It was if so he wasn’t sure in his speech. The mayor was talking about things like solutions being found, and there was no need to panic. But certainly the people knew this was a lie. The mayor treated the people as if they were stupid, and lied about finding solutions. Lina found the box at the end of the chapter containing instructions. It’s good she’s aware that this box could mean something to the City of Ember.

  4. This chapter is talk about The City of Ember have some slight difficulties. And the mayor said about have some solution for it, from this chapter, you can seeing a different mayor, because form here we just start to knows a new, a self-important mayor. Maybe, just like Doon said about that. Yes, everybody was can’t understand and also was angry, also can’t believe too. If change me, I’m feeling also is anger, but, the truth of Doon’s father is correct, because whatever, in our reality life, also, we can’t because of a small thing just anger. And, in another side, Lina with her Granny just talk about closet, I don’t know what matter about that closet, but, when Lina get a box, that is empty, and she saw her sister and ask her, but Poppy has no answer to her, when she get a paper from her sister, I think yes, that have some story inside.

  5. In this chapter its so funny how the words came out to be when the mayor was talking. It made me laugh. This part of the story it tells how the mayor calls for a city of Ember meeting. The meeting was mostly about the difficulties that the city has at that moment. the mayor was telling them that there are solutions for the difficulties that the city was having. The bad thing about it was that there was so much people that it was crowded and the people had to shove through eachother just to hear what the mayor is telling them. At the end of the story, Lina goes through the boxes that they have in the storage at the shop. Then, she asks granny where baby Poppy was at, she sees her baby sister behind the couch filled with the clutter that was there. Then she sees poppy with a box that made of something dark and shiny. She looked at the box but it was empty. She aked her sister if she saw anything in there then her baby sister gave her a cute smile because she was chewing and tearing a paper that had nice printed writing.

  7. Chapter 6.. the purpose of town meeting was about blackouts in city of Ember. The blackouts were getting longer than before and it was serious problem for everyone. The generator is like a life to people in Ember. Well..though they were in trouble the meeting was meaningless, it was just that they are finding a solution about blackouts which people didn’t believed. I think mayor
    Ember is irresponsible and helpless. He should find a quick solution before the generator goes down. The result of meeting was nothing and people hurl whatever they could to the mayor. I hope city of Ember finds a solution to fix the generator before it’s too late.

  8. At the Harken Square meeting, the mayor told the people of ember that their city has experienced some slight difficulties. He told them that it was best if they didn’t panic because that would be the worst possible thing. The mayor also did something he shouldn’t have done. He lied to the people of ember that ‘solutions are being found’ when there weren’t any at all. I think that he shouldn’t have lied to his people no matter the situation. At the end of the chapter, Lina found a beautiful box that had a paper inside. However, Poppy had chewed on it and was tearing it. The paper was covered with small, perfect printing.

  9. I would say that during the Harkensquare meeting, the mayor was aknowledging the towns people about the crises that is going on. He lied about them finding solutions to the problems. What he should have done was not to lie, but to tell them hes trying everything in his power to come forth with a solution. Probably when they find out he was lieing THEY WILL PANIC!. So anyways, towards the end of this chaptee, Linas grandmother was still searching for something secretive. Lina found a really nice box with a paper inside. Though the peices of them paper were messed up since it had been in Poppys mouth. And this is where Linas creativity, imagination and curiosity came forth to try and solve what the fine printed message was supposed to be.

  10. This chapter was about the town meeting. They mayor announced people to congregate in Harken Square. That day, there were full of crowd came to hear what the mayor is going to say. And finally he said that he has a solution to prevent the power outage. However, Doon showed anger because he already had known the mayor’s claim is not true. He told his father that he wants to mayor to be at least “honest” with his people.
    I think Doon and Lina will do something to solve the problem, the city of Ember’s power outage. I think Doon will invent a system that can fully generate the light in the city.

  11. How is Marine Phytoplankton 5000 grown?
    Our Phytoplankton is grown using reactor technology, which means that it is grown in an enclosed system, in a pharmaceutical grade sterile environment. It is grown in a bed of purified ocean water from the Atlantic Sea, while protected from any outdoor pollutants or contaminants.cheap prom dresses
