The second one might be The Kindling, by Jennifer Armstrong and Nancy Butcher, the first part of the Fire-us Trilogy.

>It is the year 2007.

>The world has been wiped out by a deadly plague that killed all the adults. Without them, children perished of hunger and disease. No more people, no more electricity, no more civilization -- just mildewed houses, overgrown yards, and abandoned cars. Yet on a highway strip outside a small town in Florida, the words "We're Still Here" are painted in letters big enough to be seen from an airplane -- although no planes ever cross the empty sky.

>Miraculously, seven children have survived among the ruins. They cannot remember their names, their families, or much else from the Before Time. But they have forged a new family, with new names: Mommy, Hunter, Teacher, Action Figure, Teddy Bear, Baby, and Doll.

>They must face each day with enough hope to endure and the strength to realize that there may be nothing out there worth living for. Then one day, a new kid shows up on their doorstep and changes everything. He invites them to join him on a dangerous journey to Washington, to find a man called President if he's still alive -- and seek the answers to the mystery at the heart of the Fire-us.

>In this first book of the Fire-us Trilogy, Jennifer Armstrong and Nancy Butcher weave a compelling post-apocalyptic tale, luring readers into a world that is inventive enough to intrigue, yet true enough to believe.

Buying a book is not about obtaining a possession, but about securing a portal.

I would love a used copy of The Kindling. It's out of print and only a penny (plus shipping). It's dystopian YA, that sounds a lot like Michael Grant's Gone series but with less paranormal.

Hmm. The only think I can remember that is vaguely like this is Fire-Us. I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for, though. This sounds like a really good book!.

Probably something from the Fire-us series.

Kind of a long shot, but is it Fire-Us?
