The Girl Who Owned a City - O.T. Nelson, adapted by Dan Jolley

Neat idea: plague gets rid of everyone over the age of twelve and an intrepid girl uses her head to save herself, her brother, and her community from starvation and gangs. With all that going on I would think you wouldn't just want to slap the whole thing together leaving the reading a little flat. So much could have been done and, hey, the original book might just do them.
