Book Reviews: **The Prophet of Yonwood
The Prophet of Yonwood. This book was published in 2006 and is a prequel to the City of Ember. I elt cheated by this book. The characters were more card board cut outs rather than real characters. The prophet does see a vision of the future, but she is ill. Because of this, a neighbor takes upon herself to interpret the prophet for everyone. In this interpretation she manipulates in the name of God and religion. Nicky, who later in life writes a journal which Doon and Lena find, is a mindless follower of the neighbor lady, at least at first. She divulges peoples life events, not knowing what is bad or good. These things are used against her friend Grover. This story did not seem real, but seemed more a platform for the author to spout against people of faith.
