The People of Sparks, by Jeanne DuPrau

The sequel to City of Ember was not as strong as the first, but was a worthwhile read.

After Lina and Doon led the people of Ember out of the underground, they all eventually come to a town called Sparks, where the inhabitants have been struggling to eke out a living, and the community has a hard time absorbing the Ember refugees. I didn't enjoy it as much as City of Ember, but it was a YA look at the issues a society faces when trying to handle crisis.
