My dd8 found an old original Black Beauty book at our 2nd hand shop and has been stuck into that. She also loves books by Holly Web. Thinking of getting her the Harry Potter books, I haven't read them myself but have had them recommend to me for her. She's apparently reading and writing at a 13yr old level according to her teacher (!)

Not classics, but I just remembered that DS loved The Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket and the Deltora Quest books around that age as well.

I'm really tired today, so not thinking well, but off the top of my head:
Anne of Green Gables is lovely.
Peter Pan and Wendy
Try Enid Blyton's books. Some may be ok, some may not. I loved them around 7-8, though.
I read books by Tamora Pierce at 12... her books are great but 7 to 8 may be a little young (content wise, but I guess it depends on your DD).
Emily Rodda has some fantastic books, as does Libby Hawthorn and Isobelle Carmody. Some of the last two are intended for teens rather than the tween bracket, so be careful there.
Tales of Despereaux is beautiful.
Bridge to Terabithia
Rangers apprentice series
Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.
