This is a great book for middle school/early high school to read alone. Younger students will probably have some trouble with the names of people and places, so it may be best suited for family read aloud time if you have younger students, or for those who may struggle with reading a bit.
If you find that you or your student really wants to go in depth with this book, the author also provides study guide links on her website. Here you'll find research links and videos that will help readers of all ages get a deeper understanding of the time period, culture and daily life as well as survival skills. You can also purchase a study guide download through Amazon.
