Synopsis

Plague by David Orme

It is 1665 and the plague has hit the city of London. Life will never be the same again for apprentice apothecary Henry Harper. His father is dead and his mother and brother have fled the country. Can Henry escape from the city he loves before the plague strikes him? Plague is part of the Shades 2.0 series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant and struggling readers. The Shades 2.0 books offer fast-paced, shorter stories (just 64pp each) for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style. Plague is ideal for reluctant readers aged 12+ with a reading age of 9 - 10 years.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
