how about the clique series by Lisi Harrison? The books were so popular there was a film made for them.

Check out Moon Rabbit by Oliver Eade Moon Rabbit

Product Description
Scottish schoolboy, Stevie, befriends pretty Chinese classmate, Maisie, when she gets teased, and takes her to his riverside camp in Peebles. When she falls into the river, he rescues her, emerging in mythological China as White Tiger. With Maisie, or Hua-Mei (Pretty Flower), he learns he has to accomplish a dangerous mission before they can get back to Peebles. He soon discovers success depends on a balance between his courage and the girl s charm. They encounter hungry ghosts, a miserable blue dragon, and many other colourful, mythological Chinese beasts and characters ... but when they finally meet the mysterious Moon Rabbit, the one who knows everything, their return to Peebles seems further away than ever ... Moon Rabbit, an engaging, beautifully illustrated, Yin Yang fantasy tale of friendship between two children from different cultures.

Wow! What a response - great for me, searching for new books for my own children ... We LOVED the series from Scott Westerfield which starts with "Uglies", set in a sci fi (but not too much so) future where on your 16th birthday you go in for a operation to turn you into a bubble-headed, hedonistic supermodel - but what about individuality, reality, truth .... ? If I remember the series goes on with "Pretties", "Specials" and "Extras". Very absorbing.

How about "I Capture the Castle" by Dodie Smith perfect for a girl your age I read it when I was in my early twenties and I wish I had read it at your age.
And then there is "Catcher in the Rye" it should be read only by teenagers this book was written just for you.

I just bought my first Kindle book (for my iphone) I loved it, read it in 2 days! Couldn't put it down 0:) It was cheap, under a pound I think, give it a go, I loved the story and the fact it was set in Scotland during ww2.

Yes, Kindles are a great idea, that's why I've just published my nine books in that format. Gone
