Hi, I’m looking for gripping books to do with thrillers, mysteries or horror for an 11 year old girl. She seems to have moved on from the real girlie stuff and wants to get stuck into a real interesting book. Many thanks
Also the classics like little princess, secret garden, Heidi, railway children, borrowers the Michael morpurgo books if she hadn't read those. Good night Mr tom and machine gunners. My dd us 9 but she's a bookworm. Just read a book she really enjoyed called Frozen in Time it won the blue peter award a few years ago.
My 11 yo has read the nowhere emporium, she has also read this year - Cogheart and Moonlocket by Robert Bunzl, Ned’s circus of marvels by Justin Fisher, The Uncommoners series by Jennifer Bell, The Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman amongst others.
Her favourite was Cogheart and Moonlocket but she would recommend all of the above.
