A deadly virus killed every adult on Earth, leaving only us kids behind. My parents are gone, so I'm responsible for my little brother, Todd. I have to make sure we stay alive. Many kids are sick or starving, and fierce gangs are stealing and destroying everything they find. Lots of people have given up, but here on Grand Avenue, some of us are surviving. Because of me. I figured out how to give the kids on Grand Avenue food, homes, and protection against the gangs. But Tom Logan and his army are determined to take away what we've built and rule the streets themselves. How long can we keep fighting them off? We need to find another place for us to live safely. A strong place. A secret place. In a world like this, someone has to take charge. But do I have the strength to take charge of a whole city?

I was unaware that this was a graphic novel version of a much longer YA novel. Overall, I really enjoyed the story and now knowing that it is YA novel will seek it out.

I like the concept and high readability of the story as it gives a different twist on what we have come to love or hate as post-apocalyptic stories. I like how "The Girl Who Owned a City" begins a dialogue on what leadership and responsibility means and focuses on that theme rather than "Oh-no zombies" thread that seems to draw YA readers. "The Girl Who Owned a City," is a great conversation starter and connecting-piece for YA readers to other classics.

Cool book! I run four middle school libraries and the demand for this book is incredible! I had 100 holds on this book at one of the schools and at least 60 holds (at one time) at the other 3 schools. I have 33 copies of this book at my 4 schools and I still cannot keep up with the demand. Students just love this story!

The content is AMAZING, but the book arrived with dogged corners and a slightly torn binding. I'm sure it will get its fair share of abuse after being read over and over again, but like anything new, I'd like for it to actually be new if I pay full price.

That said, I could barely stop reading it to write this review. So, so good!
