I too loved the book, and even though it is a young adult book, I think if you read it aloud to 3rd graders, you'd have to do a lot of background explanation. Also, maybe the theme of war and the deaths that do occur, even though they're not graphic or overly described in violent terms, would be too much for the average 3rd grader. Just my humble opinion though.

Yes, I think it is. It's written for middle schoolers. I loved it, though. Can't wait to see the movie.
