    Personally, I think hunger games pretty gruesome...I have not let DS read it yet because he has a long list of books to read before he gets to those ones lol

    Check out some of the ones above...if she loves fantasy she will devour them!

    With reading, I keep it for fun. I don't worry about needing to challenge him with "harder" books...I simply fuel the fire of his love for reading by finding him "Just Right Books"...the ones they can read by themselves and fully love. I can give you a longer list of books if you like (I owned a bookshop for many years so I do have a pretty good list lol), ones that will fire up her imagination and having her smuggling her torch into her bed each night lol

    I haven't read any replies but skullduggery pleasant may be another good series

    What about non-fiction books as an alternative?

    I've been totally put off by looking at the series at the bookshops for 'older' children. My ds has read a few Roald Dahl books, but that's it for fiction chapter books at this point. He's more into trucks/trains/planes/etc. Of course he has his readers from school which although long are thankfully still age appropriate.

    Del, what about the Hitchhiker's series? I read them at her age and I thought they were hilarious (well, because they are)

    I would love to hear suggestions River I thought Hunger Games would be that way, but when I googled young teen books the series come up so I thought it may be ok.

    I might look into that FL. She has a very quirky sense of humour so I may suit her well

    Not that I have any idea about reading levels and such Del, but has your daughter read Anne of Green Gables? Still one of my all time favourite books. I adore it. And I was 11 when I first fell in love with it I think.

    Totally off topic but I love you for loving the Anne books.

    Love. Love love.

    Hijack. I adore those books. And I love the movies as well, have you seen them? I still read and watch over and over and I just laugh and cry. One of the best stories ever told I reckon

    I adore the first two movies but refuse to acknowledge the third.

    Honestly though, I do regularly re-read the books. I really love them.

    And right now I have the music from the movies running through my head.
