Scholastic Books has reviewed the book and has set it for Grade Level 9-12.
Booklist Review listed the book for Gr.10-12 and stated that the book contains, "vividly imagined domestic details that will be accessible to most older teens (and adults), particularly fans of historical romances."
Based on these reviews the book should not be accessible to middle school children.
Let's do what is best for our children by asking the board to put this book in the High school library only!!
