The Girl Who Owned a City - O.T. Nelson Preachy, preachy, preachy! The book may well have been intended for the middle school set, but it’s written for third-grade reading comprehension. The characters are flat and/or totally out of their minds (I’m talking to about you, Lisa), the story is weak and barely supported, and the plot themes are completely unrealistic. If the author had brought the age of most of the kids up to, say, 15 or 16, the book would have been much more believable, and she could have utilized more dark, adult themes to keep the story interesting and much less childish.

Terrible excuse for post-apocalyptic fiction...
