Mysteries in the national park series;

Night of the Blackbear

Buried alive

Mary Kate and Ashley Mysteries my 13 year still loves them

Cat sitter Mystery

The Chameleon wore chartreuse a chet Gecko Mystery

Babysitters Club  Mysteries(several on my shelf)

Ghost of Popcornhill

Lizzie Mcguire mysteries case at camp get me outie

Midnight chess game(I  think this is a mystrery but my child really enjoyed it)

Montezuma's missing treasure

Mysteries for midnight

true crimes and how they are solved. This was really interesting. It talks about when they started using fingerprints, dna testing adn the crimes that were solved with them. 

I will be happy to answer any questions about these.  I hope this helps.

Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Books are good mysteries.  Not sure if they would be a bit young for her or not.

I love mysteries, and Lois Duncan was my favorite author at that age. 
I do have some mysteries on my bookshelf and a deal listed on my profile if you'd like to check it out.
