My daughter is 11 and an avid reader ( maybe a bit old for her age really) but her fave authors are Sophie McKenzie( all are great) Sarah Dessen( she's read them all), Narinder Dhami - Bang, Bang, You're Dead!, Jenny Valentine - Broken Soup & Finding Violet Park, Julia Donaldson - Running on the Cracks and Gabrieile Zevin - Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac - Hope this helps!

A Spoonful of Jam (Mammoth read)

Carrie's War (Puffin Modern Classics)
red sky in the morning
Red Sky in the Morning (PB)

My favourite book when I was 11 was the Hounds of the Morrigan. In fact, it still is.

Glastonbury Tor - Part fiction, part historical. It's a great tale.
The Secret of Kells [DVD) Has fabulous graphics and music.

Try this short novel Live by the Knife (S.P.Y Files); the first in an epic series of thrilling and entertaining novels about a young spy, fighting for her country, while keeping her identity a secret from everyone around her. It had a little of everything in it, Romance, Action, teenage journeys, and a fun narrative by the attitude-fueled spy.

Primarily a young adult novel, but apparently many adults are also finding it enjoyable as well!! :) Enjoy

Try her with Losing Agir by Liz-Fisher Frank - a brilliant read - captivating and perfect for her age. Also brings some interesting topics up such as children in care and child smuggling.

Promoting another of the books you publish?

Murielle mentioned on another thread that she was the publisher of a particular book, and this book shares the same publisher. A recommendation from the publisher of the book is worthless and the failure to reveal the connection is dishonest. Amazon prohibit promotion by parties who have an interest in a book other than in the Meet our Authors forum.

Talking about honesty to a spammer is a bit like discussing cuisine with a pig.

Great book for your daughter. "My hero is a Duke...of Hazzard"

This is an autobiography which I wrote many years ago in my twenties. It tells the true story of my incredible journey in Hollywood. My reason for going there. I name dozens of the famous stars as well as very special people whom I met and had personal experiences with. Most importantly it tells the story of how I met John Schneider on the Dukes of Hazzard set and how he became my hero. This is the true story of a runaways experience in Hollywood and how this friendship changed my life.

I have a special hero
Of whom I wrote a book,
I hope the world would read it
Paperback or Nook.

An autobiography
Non-fiction text,
If it's loved by all
A sequel maybe next.

My hero is an actor
Known to most as Bo,
I had a seed in the sand
He helped my flowers grow.

He picked me from the cactus
Where no rain had been,
Befriended me one afternoon
That's when life begin.

Thirty years have come and gone
Everyday gets brighter,
Thanks to the friendship of a Duke
Who's real name's, John R. Schneider.

Oink, oink.

And what an utterly appalling, illiterate piece of doggerel.

Louise Rennison for sure, my daughter read these at 11 and read one in one afternoon, which is when the decision was made to buy her a kindle. also Michael Mopurgo ( my daughter wrote to him at the time and he wrote back !!!!!), when she was 11 she was given a reading age of 15 in a high school reading test. she's 13 now, goodness knows what it would be now. :-)

From the "Important Announcement From Amazon" topic at the head of the forum:

"Starting on December 15, 2011, all "shameless self-promotion" activity will be limited to the `Meet Our Authors' community. Promotional threads outside of these forums will be removed. "

Are there any words in that paragraph which are unclear to you? You are engaging in "shameless self-promotion", and you are also spamming, which is both irritating and against Amazon rules. I have reported your posts for both.
