Yep. It's the "pre" hormones kicking in because our 9 yr. old DD and 10 yr. old DS are going through the same thing. IMO, consistency is key. Stick to your grounds and when you set punishments, enforce them. And I know that it's easier said than done (because it's hard for us sometimes to not give in), but in the end, she'll see that her actions come with consequences. Also, believe it or not, we were told by our sons counselor (he's seeing one for some other issues), that kids ACTUALLY WANT PUNISHMENT as a source of safety because it helps them to realize that because we're reinforcing boundaries, we're here to guide them from right and wrong.
