Kitty | 314 comments I was watching an episode of star trek where they find kids left alone after a plague wiped out the adults. That got me wondering about books where there are no adults. I know The girl who owned a city ( think that's the title) and I read gone recently. but any others?

Star Ka'Ats and the Plant People
Star Ka'at World
Steel Magic (Altho there are adults at the beginning and end of this one.)
Star Ka'ats and the Winged Warriors
On Wings of Magic Sort of--the children in this book save their entire world.

Those are the ones that Andre Norton wrote that I can think of quickly. Altho I believe that there might be one or two more, but I don't remember exactly.

When the Pirates, a gang of young boys in the small town of Timpetill, become too rowdy, the adults decide to discipline them by leaving the town in the middle of the night.

The Declaration

message 17: by Kitty (new)

Kitty | 314 comments the declaration is actually a world where children are illegal. I just finished it.
