Vivian asked:

I read this book a few years ago, but I remember thinking it was very similar to The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau, almost to the point of plagiarism. Any comment?

Allison When you read a lot, you come to realize that there are a finite number of themes, tropes, archetypes and plots. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of books that feature underground or hidden cities. The use of this device does not come close to plagiarism.
Sinika Um, It's been a while since I read the City of Ember but I think aside from being secret cities hidden in the group with special underground technology, they are quite different.
