It's like a Zombie book with live people almost. Coolest book I read as a kid. Even in high school I would pick up the book and read it though. just a really great fun and inventive book. Make you wan to read the whole thing

The Girl Who Owned a City should be compulsory literature in every classroom. Thought-provoking, fascinating, and inspiring, it remains one of the most underestimated piece of literature for young children that exists. Initially, when read, you may find yourself either instantly enthralled or equally repulsed. This is a normal reaction to the unusual critical stimulation within this novel, and subseqently compounds the novel's power.

I read this book in the sixth grade and it changed the way I've read books and viewed life since. I think that all young adults should be given the chance to read this book.

As often as I've read this book, I can't decide on it. I like it, and hate it. Lisa is very human - easy to sympathize with, and also easy to hate. And where are all the dead bodies? Rotting in hospitals? They can't all be- after all, some people would've refused to go to a hospital. Yet there is no mention of the children handling bodies or worrying about finding one. Perhaps the author considered it too macabre, but kids can read eerier, more horrific, and more realistic books than most adults realize, and understand them, too. My opinion is mixed. I loved it the first time I read it, hated it the second, and my view ever since then is just that this book makes me think. And that's why I'm continually drawn back to it.

I remember reading this in middle school and loving it. 20 years later, the thing I remember the most: If there is a disaster, skip the riot at the grocery store and head to the industrial warehouses.

I read this book when I was in 7th grade and loved it it was assigned as a class reading assignment. It was one of the few reading assignments that I really got into. The only thing I wish was that it was longer.

It is a really eye opening book. Especially if you consider the possibilty of a viral outbreak, which is now very high.
