They look a bit trashy to me....not exactly good literature. A mature 11 year old should be reading modern classics...if she's interested in romance then try The Outsiders...other good reads include Kes and The Catcher in the Rye...as a female she'd probably also love Are You There God it's Me Margaret.

The books are really for older teens - 14+ - nicely written, full of feeling, popuar, romance. I wouldn't give to an 11 year old.

thanks all - she wanted paper towns so that's next in line but will keep the others in mind
