I was reading it as an adult but the only reason it lost stars was that on my Oasis Kindle I found not read the comic strips and other pull-outs.

(130 pages) This book is about how people lived in the Middle Ages. It goes into detail about things like the plague and the crusades. I think that it would be a good book for information for middle school students, that are looking for research or are interested in these times.
