  • Try some of Diana Wynn Jones' books. The ones "Like Eight Days of Luke" and NOT "The Homeward Boundwards" or "The Dark Lord of Dersham." Those are a bit more for the upper teen set.
    Has she read the BoxCar Children series?
    PM me and I can get a good list for you to look for.

  • At that age I was really into the "Babysitters Little sister's" books. My friends daughter and a neighbor are really into the bella sara series. Just a few suggestions.

    What is she really into and then I would seek out the help of a librarian to gew a few more suggestions.

  • What is her reading level? My kids loved Junie B. Jones but it might be a lower level. Those books are so funny! I read them and I crack up. Also 39 clues is interesting. Harry Potter? Wish I could help more sorry!

  • Nancy Drew. They do have a younger version as well. Diary of a Dork or something along those lines, they're the 'girly' version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

  • I agree wholeheartedly with merandaobrien, wholesome books which teach ethics and history are very important especially today. I am not fond of Junie B Jones but all the rest are A plus.
