What are some good books for a 12 year old I know?

She like to read she has many books! She likes current ones. She said she hope that people recommend ones she has already. Realistic fiction is her favorite.


My 12 year old sister ADORES the Jacqueline Wilson books. They are fiction and involve real life situations. :)


I recommend the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. They are really really good and there is a good bit of humor in them
