This is a great book for "reluctant readers." It's written at a fairly basic reading level (3rd/4th grade), but the topic and presentation are appropriate through high school. And it's engaging: death and diseases with all kinds of interesting factoids. It also describes the full line-up of people who fight plagues: from doctors and health department investigators to people at the Department of Homeland Security.

A good resource book for any youngster who needs resource information about pandemics and the history of them. Nice illustrations and easy to understand text will make this a good book to add to your collection.
