This is biography for children, so it is understandably basic and introductory. The vocabulary is simple and the syntax and sentence structure of easy. The story is true, however sparse, and does cover the basics of Nightingales's life, although it lacks the depth and emotion of the a larger adult novel. I would recommend this as an excellent beginners book, suitable for a 2nd-3rd grade reading level. While it is about a girl, boys will be interested in the Crimea description and the blood'n'guts aspect. ( )
