    Texas Library Assoc does an annual selection of books for kids and my kids would usually find some good ones that way.  Also, check for past winners.

    I found the reviews and lists on Amazon to be a great resource.  It is a lot of work finding good, appropriate and interesting books for those preteen years, especially for girls.  Definitely have to go back and look for books written in the 70's and 80's.  It is fun though to share your favorites with them and to also read their favorites with them.  

    My 14 year old is now reading Life of Pi and I am enjoying discussing it with him

      When I was stationed in Ft. Hood, my daughter read every Oz book through the the Texas libraries.

      I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.
