I’m struggling with DD’s summer reading list. She will turn 10 in August.

She’s recently enjoyed the whole Five Children and It series, Star of Kazan, Girl of Ink and Star.

Really into Cassandra Clare’s Shadow Hunters at the moment and Soman Chaini’s School for Good and Evil, which i’m not so keen on.

Any ideas would be very welcome.

Thank you.
