Epic! for older students? ELs?

Hello, friends!

I have heard raves about getepic.com, which delivers books for independent reading to any device. Sounds amazing!

My question - it is designed for elementary students. I will be teaching grade 9. I know this sounds like a mismatch, but I will have lots of EL students. In addition, many of my students read at the fifth grade level.

Epic! teachers - opinions on using with older kids?

EL teachers - opinions on using elementary level books for my new ELs?

Spec Ed teachers - opinions on using elementary books with older native speakers? Note - I intend to beef up my physical library to include more HiLo books.

Grade 9 ELA - I am moving from middle to high school this year. Not such a big jump, but - would struggling grade 9 kids balk at elementary options, do you think?

I appreciate any and all thoughts.

Happy New Year, everyone!
