I have to disagree with the Library review which says this is for grades 5-9. My 10 yo found it very disturbing when the massacre was described at great length and at times in graphic detail (for a 10 yo). For example, how one man was shot 4 times in the back, one of which severed his spinal cord, and the people trying to help him watched him slowly die and gasp to try and answer questions. Most of the book is fine, but I think some scenes are more appropriate for teens. If you were reading it aloud to the child(ren), you could skip over those parts.
