Jennifer G I read this when I was a kid, and it was a novel, maybe one of those pre-teen novels, about a post-apocalyptical world where all adults are dead (anyone over the age of 10 dies), and the children rule the world in a very Lord of the Flies fashion. The book centered on a girl who was the head of one group of kids and who were eventually attacked by another group. (I remember a part of pouring boiling oil down on the "enemy" group).

Sound familiar to anyone?

If I had to read another PAGE about Lisa and her brother, Todd...my brain would have bled, I'm sure of it.
