    Can anyone recommend some books that are short in length, but are at a book level of 7.0 or higher. One book that I've come up with is The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Any others?

    What age of child do you have in mind, reading at this level? Are there particular interests or genre you'd like to focus on (or exclude)?

    I don't know how short you mean, but here are some I think of as shorter.

    Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
    And Then There Were None (or any Agatha Christie)
    Sherlock Holmes compilations
    Pride and Prejudice (gateway to Jane!)
    To Kill a Mockingbird
    Little House books (Laura Ingalls Wilder)
    Animal Farm or 1984
    Fahrenheit 451
    Alex Rider series (sometimes a little violent)
    39 Clues series

    Oh sorry - she is 10 going into 6th grade. Gets tired easily of reading longer chapter books so I'm thinking that the shorter the book, the more success she might feel if she finishes it. She needs those AR points!

    She's not that much of an advanced reader, but I feel she's stronger than what she has shown on school testing. She's really not too much into fantasy, though.

    The Midwife's Apprentice? Looks like it's recommended for grades 6-9.
