What are some good books for a 12 year old?
What are some good books for a 12 year old who reads above her grade level? Too many teen books deal with topics that are too mature for a younger reader.
Being a former librarian, I know of hundreds of possible books for 12 year-olds to read. Some of the best are: Percy Jackson (series), Ember (series), Alex Rider (series), any book by Kate DiCamillo, Gordon Korman, Anthony Horowitz, Erin Hunn (Warrior Series), Sharon Creech (Ruby Holler), and Rick Riordan. Also, check out non-fiction titles that your child might be interested in. Generally, your local library would have a number of great titles to choose from. The authors I listed above are great overall and students love their books. Check Scholastic.com for more ideas. Good Luck!
She has read the 39 Clues books written by Gordon Korman and Rick Riordan, do they have others that are similar? She didn't care for the Warrior series, but we'll definitely check out some of the others. Thanks!
Gordon Korman and Rick Riordan have multiple series. My best suggestion is to go on the Barnes and Noble website and google their names. Sounds like your daughter is on the right track!
I used to read the Unicorns of Balinor series and the Heartland series. both were excellent series and they are very much age appropriate I think.
I teach at a Middle School / Junior High, and I happen to be the librarian. If we are talking about a girl reader, I suggest the Uglies series by Scott Westerfield. There are 4 books in the series. I think they are great. There is your typical love story in the background, but it is not at the forefront and it is not inappropriate for that age.
