The Girl Who Owned A City

"The Girl Who Owned a City" is a post apocalyptic novel for children by O. T. Nelson, first published in 1975.

A virus has killed all people over an the age of twelve. The surviving children are forming gangs and small armies to fight for the remaining resources. And there is Lisa organizing her neighborhood in a better way…
Yeah, it’s a nice book and I loved it once, but the real interesting thing is, that nobody (neither the authot nor the children) seems to miss the adults, the dead parents. Sure, there are a lot of problems because they are gone. But this makes the world only more interesting. Finally children are on their own!
