It is 1665 and the plague has hit the city of London. Life will never be the same again for apprentice apothecary Henry Harper. His father is dead and his mother and brother have fled the country. Can Henry escape from the city he loves before the plague strikes him? Plague is part of the Sharp Shades 2.0 series. These books offer the same type of fast-paced short stories (just 64pp each) found in the Shades 2.0 series. The Sharp Shades stories include simpler language, a larger font and are illustrated throughout. They are perfect for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style. Plague is ideal for reluctant readers aged 12+ with a reading ages of 9 - 10. Published by Ransom Publishing.
