What are some books you recommend for a 13 [almost 14] year old girl?

Which doesn't like the Twilight Saga, cause it bores her out, and already read all classical novels.

Thanks, and that girl is me :)

I'm going to the library soon... that's why.


P.S. I like Meg Cabot, and if you could, give a short summary of the books you list.

Thankss again :)

    Hey there!

    I've started a seiries called The Seven Deadly Sins by Robin Wasserman. It basically is about seven teenagers living in a run down city in California and all the drama they go through. It does involve drugs, alcohol, and a teensy bit of sex, but it is still a great seiries I've reccommended to my friends.

    Have fun reading! (P.S. -- I'm 13 also.)

    the riddles of epsilon - christine morton shaw

    it's not a particularly well-known book but i came by it a couple of years ago (about your age) and it completely gripped me! i have read it countless times since.

    it's about a girl who moves to a remote island - away from everything she knows and she hates it - until a mysterious 'supernatural' being comes into her life with endless riddles and clues which all link together to help solve a huge mystery that involves her family.

    it's quite an eerie book, a bit of a mystery but it has elements of fun and humour in there too. i'd say, don't knock it 'til you've tried it, it's a great book:)
