Aren't they more or less ready for adult books at that age- something that makes you laugh, perhaps?

Is Adrian Mole a bit dated now?

I read 'My family and other animals' by Gerald Durrel at about that age and loved it.
Adrian Mole was a favourite too.

I was reading adult books at that age, girls have pretty adult humour by 15 I think. I will have another think and come back if anything comes to mind.

Has she tried Terry Pratchett? It may not be her thing, but they are so so funny. My brother and I started reading them in our teens and I can remember howling with laughter.
How about some Bill Bryson? His first couple - Notes from a Small Island/Big Country are the most amusing I think.

I also found Jane Austen fun, light reading at that age but she may have read those already!

Ooh - just been running my eyes over the bookcase next to me - The Three Musketeers is hilarious and if she loved Durrell then it's definitely worth giving it a go.

Is she too old for Paula Danziger or Judy Blume?

By Louise Rennison. My 15 year old daughter loved this. Also Diary of a Crush (French Kiss) by Sarra Manning made her chuckle too. Good luck
