My 10 year old loved this book He said it was a very easy read and thought his 8 year old brother could easily read it He found the story fascinating and inspiring The main character and their community go through many hardships It was eye opening to my son, reading about a life so different from his own, yet it was also much the same Inspiring because a kid was able to take spare bike parts and make a windmill It was a very kids can do big things message for my son He loved retelling the story over dinner At the end, my son declared this to be his new favorite book. This was a gift for my 10 year old grandson He reads a lot and above his grade level When he saw the title he wasn t impressed and thought he wouldn t like it, but once he started reading it he couldn t stop He apologized later because he had said he wouldn t like it, but really loved it. My middle schooler actually liked this book My son and I struggled partway through some incredibly boring books on the middle school reading list When it became apparent that he wouldn t finish on time, I desperately looked for something else on the list, knowing that whatever we picked would have to be read morning, noon, and night for him to finish on time Thank goodness for this book The story is fascinating and well told, and we thoroughly enjoyed a weekend of binge reading it.Even little brother read and enjoyed it with us voluntarily.This a great read for young and old, which I plan to pass on to their older sister and my parents.
