    DD recently had a reading binge (did not go the school due to severe illness). By far and away her favourite was A Study In Charlotte.

    Charlotte Holmes is quite a clever young lady - a flawed but real role model potentially.

    Trigger Warning:
    Touches some borderline mature (mentions sex) issues but never in any great or graphic detail apparently - not that I expect our 11 year old to really know what that is LOL

    We liked "Where the Mountain Meets the Moon" by Grace Lin.

    Also, The Princess Bride is a good movie and (I'm guessing) a good book. I'm not sure what age group would like it, but the site in the link says ten and up.
