A killing virus has swept the earth, sparing only children through the age of twelve. There is chaos everywhere, even in formely prosperous mid-America. Gangs and fierce armies of children begin to form almost immediately. It would be the same for the children on Grand Avenue but for Lisa, a ten-year-old girl who becomes their leader.

Then Lisa conceives the idea of a fortress, a city in which the children could live safely and happily always, and she intends to lead them there.

So many teachers come in and out of our lives and I'm sure we all have a million stories about an inspirational English teacher. But that isn't one of those stories. I will never forget Mrs. Brown. I had just moved to a new school. I was an avid reader and prior to the move English was always my f...
